The Wand is a computer-controlled device used to deliver local anesthetic. Unlike traditional bulky metal syringes, the “Wand” uses a lightweight plastic handpiece that gently pumps the local anesthetic to the desired location. This virtually eliminates the main cause of pain which is the forcing of the anesthetic into the tissues.

How Does Wand work?
The WAND is a computer controlled local anesthetic injection system that helps conquer fear, pain and anxiety. A microprocessor controls the flow rate/volume ratio to ensure safe, virtually painless profound anesthesia.

In short, this technology conquers the pain and anxiety of injections. The microprocessor inside “The WAND” automatically ensures a steady flow rate regardless of tissue density. Constant, slow flow is one key to virtually pain-free injections. The computer provides a flow of anesthetic directly ahead of the needle. This creates a pathway of anesthesia so you hardly feel the needle at all.

The source of discomfort for most injections, however, isn’t the needle, it’s the flow of the anesthetic into your tissue. The WAND delivers the anesthetic at an optimal flow rate for a comfortable injection. We’ve taken the fear, anxiety and pain out of dental anesthetic injections! We know that some patients get more nervous than others do at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. That’s why this office now performs anesthetic injections with a revolutionary system called The WAND. It doesn’t look like a syringe. It doesn’t feel like a syringe.

The WAND allows injections that do not numb the lips, face and muscles of expression. Whether injections make you nervous or not, The WAND helps us provide a more effective anesthetic delivery and the onset of anesthesia is often faster. You’re more comfortable throughout the procedure, and we may be able to use techniques so you won’t experience the lingering numbness of your tongue, lips and face.
The WAND is an excellent example of our efforts to bring you helpful dental technology, and to aid all of our patients have a pleasant, positive visit to our office. Feel free to ask us if you’d like to know more about this remarkable system.
