Device reduces injection pain

The Palatal Anesthesia Device (PAD) is a unique and simple patented instrument used to greatly decrease the pain associated with palatal injections. The instrument was developed and patented by a practicing periodontist and uses the principles of pressure anesthesia and the gate-control theory of pain. Pressure anesthesia is administered by the mechanical pressure of the instrument on the palatal tissue.
