Consultants’ Comments


  • “I love this product for patients having scaling and root planing procedures.”
  • “Great delivery system. It was very easy to assemble the syringe, and  there were fewer parts than our usual product’s delivery system.”
  • “I liked being able to place it directly in the sulcus, and the ease of  placing it at 1 or 2 teeth.”
  • Gingicaine gel stays exactly where it’s placed.”
  • “Anesthesia lasted during the procedure and beyond.”
  • “Predictable anesthesia for scaling and other gingival manipulation.”
  • “Most patients reported that they preferred the taste to other topicals – no strong odor.”
  • “Patients did not mind the taste and were receptive to its use.”
  • “I didn’t find it as effective as other products, especially for very  sensitive patients.”
