Needle-Free Dental Anesthetic
KOVANAZE provides regional, pulpal anesthesia with 96% efficacy in teeth 5-12, therefore KOVANAZE offers a needle-free alternative to the majority of anterior maxillary injections. What this means for our patients is “NO SHOTS when we treat the upper front teeth anymore!” Please ask us TODAY if this would be a good option for you!
Additionally, patients may not experience the same sensations of numbness or tingling of the lips and cheeks associated with inject-able dental anesthetics.

How long does KOVANAZE work? Kovanaze takes about 10 minutes to fully numb your teeth and lasts about 30 minutes.
How much does KOVANAZE cost? At our office we charge $50.00 for two “sprays” of Kovanaze.
