For many patients, it is not the pain of a filling or crown that causes anxiety; it is typically the fear of the aesthetic injection that precedes the treatment. Fortunately, modern dental technology has delivered ways to address this fear and eliminate the dreaded discomfort of receiving a shot in the dental chair.
The Dental Wand
The thought of a needle or syringe going into your gums can be unnerving to say the least. However, numbing injections are necessary to block the pain from the actual dental procedure. Until The Dental Wand, the anesthetic process caused significant discomfort and anxiety for patients.
The Wand is a Computer Assisted Anesthesia System that is much more comfortable than syringe injections. This advanced technology not only allows single tooth anesthesia, but it also emits a continuous stream of anesthetic to the gum tissue to ensure that the numbing effects are consistent throughout your procedure.
