Dental Safety Needle

Introducing SafeCAP, our sharpest, smoothest safety needle system with a built-in clear, ultra-thin recapping sheath, designed to prevent needle stick injuries. The EverSHARP patented proprietary coating provides unimpeded, smooth tissue penetration with less tissue resistance and drag, decreasing micro trauma and adjacent visceral tissue damage. This virtually eliminates pain during needle insertion and anesthesia administration while increasing patient comfort and satisfaction.

Threading is built into the hub so the needle glides and becomes tight only when it bottoms out—making it clear when it is and is not secure.
