What is the Dental Wand?
The dental wand allows us to slowly and steadily administer local anesthetic using computer-guided technology. This produces a more comfortable experience and significantly less pain when coming in for treatment. Many of our patients like to call this option their “magic wand” as it allows them to receive a local injection without the pain or anxiety that is often involved. The dental wand is ideal for patients of all ages and medical needs.
Why is the Dental Wand needed?
The dental wand is a more comfortable alternative to a typical syringe. It is often needed for patients who have have anxiety or a phobia of dental injections. Because the level of anesthetic is controlled, less stinging and pain is experienced and you’ll feel more relaxed before every procedure. The dental wand is excellent for pediatric patients who may show fear of needles.
