Dental patients everywhere have something in common. No one enjoys shots. Often, it takes more than one injection to numb an area. It’s almost worse than the procedure itself! And when the procedure is done, you’re left with numbness spread throughout your mouth. It’s an unpleasant process, to say the least.
Our office has resolved these problems with the use of The Wand™, a new dental technology that enables us to provide anesthesia with little or no discomfort. With The Wand ™, we have control over the flow and delivery of anesthesia, plus this unique dental technology pinpoints intraligamentary tissue to help us identify the precise location for administering anesthesia.
The Wand™ : A Powerful Dental Technology Breakthrough
- The Wand’s precise control allows for “single tooth anesthesia” (STA). You’re spared an entire numb mouth in favor of one numbed tooth. STA makes it easier to return to work comfortably, with no worries about talking, eating, or drinking. STA also means bilateral work on your mouth can be done on the same day.
- It doesn’t look scary. For patients with a fear of needles or of dentistry, this matters a lot. The Wand™ has a benign modern shape and is very non-threatening. The needle is a very small one in the tip of the device.
- It’s almost completely painless. This new dental technology’s precise control results in administration of the correct amount of anesthesia for the tissue, and many patients report The Wand™ makes the delivery of the anesthesia almost painless.
- It allows smile-line access. If your dentist is doing work that requires access to your smile line, this new dental technology makes it easy.
“Let us show you how our office can use new dental technology like The Wand™ to make your root canal or other procedure a more pain-free experience,” says Dr. Jacqueline S. Allen, endodontist at the Phoenix Endodontic Group. “The Wand™ makes it possible for us to give our patients a better experience with less pain and anxiety, and we’re pleased to offer it as a regular part of our practice.”
