Anutra Medical is a company focused on providing effective medical equipment that delivers dental anesthesia. At our practice, we are pleased to utilize the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System, which focuses on enhancing the body’s natural buffering process. Buffering is a chemical process that naturally occurs in the body. It uses three natural buffers (carbonate/carbonic acid, phosphate and plasma proteins) to neutralize your body’s pH balance. When buffering occurs naturally, it can be a slow process. However, the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System enhances this process.
Most local anesthetics are acidic, meaning they can cause a burning or stinging sensation because the pH level is so low. The Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System uses the natural buffering system to bring the pH level of the anesthesia closer to your body’s natural pH level. Enhancing the buffering process has several benefits, including:
- Increasing the depth of the anesthesia and thus increasing the likelihood that you will get numb on the first try.
- Allowing the anesthesia to cross nerve membranes easier, making you numb faster.
- Reducing the amount of pain during the numbing process.
With the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System, our dentist and team can make your treatment faster and more comfortable. We welcome you to visit or call our office for more information and to get your virtually pain-free anesthesia.
