Needles Are A Thing Of The Past!
If you are like most of our patients, then you probably don’t like anesthetic shots. The process can be very intimidating and very uncomfortable, usually requiring multiple shots to numb the tooth or teeth involved. If you have had to experience this, then you know that many times the anesthetic shots can be more uncomfortable than the procedure itself. At our office, you don’t need to have that concern. Continue reading to see how we are using a more comfortable anesthesia process.
What is The Wand®?
The Wand® is a revolutionary computer-assisted way to deliver anesthesia. The computer uses a tiny needle to control the flow of anesthesia, which leads to a more comfortable experience for our patients. The handpiece doesn’t even look like a syringe; it actually resembles a ballpoint pen. The appearance greatly reduces the anxiety caused by the needle associated with a syringe.
Why do we use The Wand®?
No Collateral Numbness
One of the biggest benefits of using painless wand anesthesia is that only the damaged tooth or teeth are numbed. Gone are the days of leaving the dentist after a procedure with the entire side of your face numbed. It is possible to return to work, school, and daily activities without worrying about how you will talk, eat, and drink. The localized numbness is much easier to manage, which leads to a more pleasant post treatment experience.
Approximately 20% of the population is afraid of needles. We want to take the fear out of coming to the dentist for a procedure. Delaying a dental procedure can be more detrimental for the long-term health of your teeth. The Wand® eliminates the anxiety caused by needles. Due to the appearance and the way the anesthesia is administered, patients do not realize that a needle is being, and it results in a more comfortable experience.
If you have been putting off a dental procedure, no need to fear. Our office is located in Spring Hill, Florida. Call us today to schedule your appointment, and you will be able to see the benefits of using The Wand®. We look forward to hearing from you.
