Needle-free dental anesthesia is now available and we have used it [on real patients for real procedures] at Creekstone Dental. It is called Kovanaze, and it works, but not everywhere in the mouth. It only works on upper teeth [sorry, not on any lower teeth]. It costs more [$100–just for the cost of the drug], but for the true dental phobics it is totally worth it. We have it now and early patients really liked it because it worked well and did not make the lips feel so swollen and numb. Other than the cost, we have nothing but good things to say. It has received FDA approval and is approved for use on both children and adults.
