Our Commitment to Your Health and Safety. > Learn More


Our dentists, Dr. Seltzer and Dr. Rein are able to provide specific care for your needs. We are proud to utilize the latest in dental anesthesia – Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA). With about half of patients fearing the dentist, this system reduces anxiety, pain, and discomfort following their procedure.

At Long Island Smile, we are dedicated to providing the latest technology for our patients. We recognize that dentistry is a rapidly advancing science that we continuously stay updated on through continuing education. This means that our treatments are more efficient and more comfortable as well.

What is single tooth anesthesia?

Many patients tell us that the worst part of dental treatments is the dull numbness they feel for hours following their procedure. Some patients even choose to endure the pain of a procedure versus being numbed. With Single Tooth Anesthesia, only the affected area is numbed. We do not numb your cheek, your lips, or your tongue. Using a computer, it controls the delivery of medication directly to a precise location and delivers a controlled amount of anesthesia.

Patients love the STA system because:

How is it done?

Using a wand instrument, our dentists, Neal Seltzer, DMD and Jeffrey Rein, DDS, are able to directly apply the anesthesia directly where it is needed. No needles, no pain, this system gives the precise anesthesia needed in the exact place it’s needed.

Who can receive single tooth anesthesia?

We are able to provide STA to our patients of all ages. In fact, this system is ideal for everyone because:

With no wait time for the anesthesia to take effect, that means less time in the chair, something all of our patients prefer to hear. What’s more, patients are able to eat immediately following their procedure, no recovery time. Less anxiety, no pain, no numbness after, the STA is a great advancement.
