Periodontist, Dr. Keith Chertok, helps those with a fear of needles receive life-changing oral health and gum disease care in Berkeley, CA with Oraqix®, a needle-free anesthetic. Made of gel, Oraqix is administered topically with a blunt-tipped applicator below the gum line. This non-invasive anesthetic helps Dr. Chertok provide leading periodontal care to those who suffer from a fear of needles or dental anxiety in Berkeley, CA.

A needle-free alternative to traditional anesthetics, Oraqix can provide numbing within 30 seconds. Dr. Chertok uses it to selectively numb only the specific areas that he will treat. The numbing sensation lasts about 20 minutes, so patients typically have feeling restored in their mouth by the time their appointment is complete. Oraqix can be used for scaling and root planing, periodontal maintenance, and other gum disease treatment and prevention methods.
