The Wand and Better Dental Anesthetics-- Better Numbing!
Posted Aug 24 2008 6:38pm
Are you looking for anesthetic that comes close to the ideal of
“painless?” According to
a recent national survey, over 50% of patients fear anesthetic syringes. Some patients get more nervous than others at
the mere sight of a needle. Discomfort from a dental shot is mostly due
to the feeling of pressure created by the flow of dental anesthetic. A
computer controlled injection system can greatly relieve this
discomfort. THE WAND® represents the first major technological advance
in anesthetic delivery since the syringe was first invented nearly one
hundred fifty years ago. The Wand regulates the flow rate and pressure
of the anesthetic solution and delivers it more precisely than ever
possible in the past. This provides quicker numbing of the teeth, often
without the usual numbness of the tongue, lips and face.
We also use a greatly improved version of the old “Novocain” called Articaine. Pharmacological advances have produced anesthetics that
“soak in” faster and produce a more profound numbing.
By using the Wand delivery system, better pre-numbing topical
anesthetic, and an improved dental anesthetic, we can come about as close to
“painless” dentistry as medically possible!
