While our Solea laser often eliminates the need for anesthetic, there are still procedures that require us to numb an area of the mouth. With the Wand, we’ve eliminated the anxiety provoking experience of administering anesthesia through a traditional needle.
The Wand is a device that enables us to deliver just the right amount of anesthesia over time, rather than an entire dose at once.
Instead of using a traditional needle to deliver anesthesia, the Wand uses a small device that looks similar to a small pen. In addition to reducing anxiety that comes from seeing traditional dental needles, the Wand has several other advantages:
Can you imagine a visit to the dentists with no needles, no pain and no residual numbness?
People who have experienced fear and pain at the dentist are often afraid to attend their regular check-ups, and are daunted by the drills, needles and sharp implements that are typically associated with dentistry. The #1 concern of dental patients is the syringes used to administer anaesthetic, and even those who are not scared of needles, can find the post-appointment numbness wholly unpleasant and disruptive to their day.
At Central Park Dentists we use a cutting-edge digital alternative to traditional anaesthetic: The Wand. The Wand is a computer-assisted anaesthetic delivery device which eliminates the anxiety and discomfort caused by a traditional needle – making it the perfect tool for treating children or nervous patients.
We should mention that The Wand is not 100% needle free. However it bears no resemblance to a syringe, and looks like a small pen with a discreet needle at its tip.
The Wand numbs only the individual tooth that is being treated. Your dentist will place the injection right next to the tooth, using The Wand’s state-of-the-art technology to assist them.
While many dental practices continue to use the traditional methods of syringe anaesthesia, Central Park Dentists employs The Wand for painless and anxiety-free dental injections across all of our procedures. Used in combination with our other digital dentistry technologies, your dental experience at our Manhattan practice will be comfortable, efficient and pain-free. It truly is a magic wand!
Using The Wand for dental anaesthesia has several advantages for our patients at Central Park Dentists:
The Wand is used in a range of restorative dental treatments, including root canals, crowns, fillings, onlays and tooth extractions.
