Dentist pioneers a painless jab

A dental practice which leads the way in pain free treatment is giving new hope to patients who dread the needle – by offering painless injections.
 
Lubiju, in Edinburgh, will now be established as a centre of excellence in the use of the innovative QuickSleeper system, which instantly numbs teeth with a single painless injection.
 
Cosmetic dentist Dr Biju Krishnan, who set up Lubiju, expects the new anaesthetic to be a hit with those who normally avoid the chair because of needle phobias. 
 
He says: 'This really is the kind of exciting new technology which dentist's have been dreaming about for decades, so we are proud to be at the forefront of introducing it in Scotland.
 
'It is our aim at Lubiju to bring the best available treatments to Scotland from around the world. The QuickSleeper system has been developed over 10 years and is a huge leap forward.'
 
While the QuickSleeper anaesthetic still requires a needle, it is specially engineered in shape and combined with the injection technique, ensures the patient feels only a slight vibration.
 
With just a single injection a dentist can numb up to eight teeth, ending the need for multiple jabs. The anaesthetic is so carefully targeted at specific nerves, it also means patients are not left with numb tongue lips or cheeks.
 
The revolutionary method works by injecting anaesthetic into the soft bone area around a tooth – whereas traditional injections go only into the gum. 
 
Dr Krishnan adds: 'As the needle enters the gum the patient may feel a very slight vibration, but nothing more. The major difference is that this system injects anaesthetic into soft bone, rather than the gum.
 
'Bone hardly has any nerve endings so patients feel nothing. Not only is it completely painless, but it only numbs the teeth being worked on, not the cheeks or lips. 
 
'As well as benefitting the patient, for the dentist it is fantastic that up to eight teeth can be numbed at once, where previously a single injection per tooth was required.

'One of the biggest obstacles we face is working with patients who have a deep-rooted fear of injections. Being able to offer a genuinely pain anaesthetic is groundbreaking.'
 
General Medical is the UK distributor for QuickSleeper and Paul McPherson, agent for Scotland, Northern Ireland and North England, says: 'For many people who go to the dentist, what they most fear is the injection. Our new approach to anaesthetics makes the injection painless, so we believe it will help both patients and dentists.
 
'QuickSleeper is great for kids and it's very quick, which means the dentist can save a lot of time and potentially treat more patients.
 
'The team at Lubiju is recognised for its expertise and we are delighted to be working with them towards creating a centre of excellence to train others how to use QuickSleeper.'
 
Dr Krishnan and fellow Dundee University graduate Dr Lubino do Rego, set up Lubiju in March 2009, to concentrate on adopting and developing emerging, hi-tech techniques in cosmetic dentistry.
