Needle Free Anesthesia In White Plains

For patients who require local anesthetic for deep cleanings (such as patients undergoing treatment for Periodontal disease), we offer needle free anesthesia.

Dr Handschuh was one of the first practitioners in Westchester County to offer the use of a needle free local anesthetic called Oraquix.

Oraquix provides patients with profound anesthesia so that deep scaling and other gum treatments may be provided without the pain from conventional needle injected anesthesia.

Another benefit to Oraquix needle free anesthesia is that it only lasts 15 to 20 minutes, enabling patients to resume normal activities faster than with conventional anesthesia, helping you avoid that numb feeling that usually lasts for hours after most oral anesthesia.
