P3 for Comfort is a clinician friendly, patient friendly topically applied local anesthetic. It can be used supragingivally as a preinjection numbing agent or subgingivally prior to SRP.
P3 for Comfort is a water based formulation. To our knowledge, other than P3 Dental Technologies, there are no companies that manufacture both LAA and topical anesthetic. This difference in manufacturers most often leads to chemical incompatibilities. When a water base product is mixed with an oil base or copolymer based product, they block each other and produce unacceptable clinical results. All P3 products are formulated to be chemically compatible and complement each other.
The active ingredients in P3 for Comfort are an exact safe concentration of prilocaine and lidocaine. To avoid adverse cardiac events, there are no vasoconstrictor additives. Prilocaine produces an immediate short acting result while the longer acting lidocaine is taking effect. P3 for Comfort does NOT use benzocaine in its formulation because of the ability to cause allergic reactions and the life threatening condition of methemoglobinemia.
The bitter taste of prilocaine and lidocaine has been removed from P3 for Comfort formula. This produces a pleasant taste for the patient. The specialized painless delivery system is clinician friendly.
