You’ve been avoiding getting your dental work for one reason—and it’s not to because you’re scared of seeing your dentist or even the dental chair. It’s because you can’t stand the thought of receiving your local anesthetic via injection.
Your family dentist in Ft. Collins understands that not everyone likes to face needles. We also value patient comfort and want to make every dental visit a positive experience. Now, we offer a revolutionary anesthetic called Kovanaze. Learn more about it in this week’s blog post!
What is Kovanaze?
Kovanaze is the first FDA-approved no-needle regional, pulpal anesthetic administered via nasal spray. Basically, this means that if you’re planning to receive a dental treatment or procedure that requires an anesthetic to manage dental discomfort, you can avoid having a local injection. Rather, take a quick spray of Kovanaze through your nose and you’ll feel relaxed and numb enough to undergo the necessary dental work you need.
What do you need to know about Kovanaze?
Kovanaze provides regional, pulpal anesthesia with 96% efficacy in most teeth. This means that this is a modern, innovative, needle-free alternative to the majority of anesthetic injections. This can help many people to receive the dental work they truly need!
With traditional local anesthetic, many patients experienced side effects like additional numbness or tingling of the lips and cheeks for hours on end after their dental procedure. Kovanaze, however, relieves these symptoms. Many patients don’t experience any abnormal sensations in additional areas of the mouth.
Kovanaze is the first no-needle regional, pulpal anesthetic administered via nasal spray to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It offers patients a safe and effective, needle-free alternative.
What do people think about Kovanaze?
Both patients and practitioners that have tried both methods of anesthesia—local and the nasal alternative—have expressed great satisfaction with Kovanaze. Many more patients have received dental work that they would have avoided and let fester into further dental concerns. Based on patient experiences and the ability to advanced in necessary treatments, this new alternative is good for patients, practitioners, and dentistry as a whole!

Collins would be more than happy to review the product with you and explore how you may benefit from it.
