What is the WAND Single Tooth anesthesia?
The WAND is a local anesthetic injection system producing pain free dentistry. The WAND is computer controlled, reducing the pain felt when having the needle. It helps conquer fear, pain and anxiety. A microprocessor controls the flow rate and volume ratio to make sure safe, almost painless anesthesia is achieved. This is the reason why The WAND helps people conquer pain and anxiety of injections.
How The WAND works?
The way it works is that the microprocessor inside the WAND automatically ensures a steady flow rate regardless of tissue density. Constant, slow flow is one key to almost pain-free injections. The computer provides the flow of anesthetic directly ahead of the needle creating a pathway of anesthesia – so you hardly feel the needle at all! The wand doesn’t look like a needle and it’s got a ultra fine tip too – smaller than the traditional system and is held like a pen. Using the WAND anesthetic is very enjoyable for your dentist too, because it’s so light and easy to handle.
Some Facts about the WAND
- The source of discomfort for most injections isn’t the needle, it’s the flow rate of the anesthetic into your tissue. The WAND delivers the anesthetic at an optimal flow rate for a comfortable injection.
- The WAND doesn’t look like a needle and it’s got a ultra fine tip too – smaller than the traditional system and is held like a pen.
