Abstract:

Dentistry utilizes many resources with the intention of reducing patient anxiety during local anesthetic administration. Despite the effective use of local anesthetic, pain associated with dental injections can be a source of fear and anxiety for patients and become a great obstacle in dental care. The NumBee by Biodent is a relatively new dental device that utilizes a small cannula, instead of a hypodermic needle, for intraligamentary injections. Without penetrating the periodontal ligament PDL, the NumBee infuses local anesthetic into the tissue with slow exerted pressure on the plunger of the syringe.
