Millions of people in the US struggle with dental anxiety or phobia, making visiting the dentist a real struggle. Fear of needles may be the only healthcare-related phobia that rivals the anxiety many people experience when visiting the dentist. When you mix those two things together, you have a recipe for anxiety. Your Tyler dental office team works hard to make our office a friendly and inviting place that you won’t dread visiting, but until recently, there wasn’t much we could do about using needles to administer local numbing medication. Luckily, we now have the Wand. This unique local anesthesia tool allows us to administer numbing solution without you ever having to see a needle. It sounds like magic, and that’s why it’s called the Wand!
What is the Wand?
The Wand is an innovative local anesthesia administration tool. Assisted by computer programming, this device allows us to administer the perfect amount of numbing to ensure complete comfort without leaving you unable to feel your lips for the rest of the day. Best of all, the handheld Wand administration tool, as the name indicates, looks a bit like a magic wand. Secretly, there is a small needle hidden within the tool, but you’ll never see or feel it.
What are the Benefits?
Whenever we incorporate a new technology into our dental office, we like to make sure these high tech tools are worth the investment and training. For us, the ideal dental technology will make receiving dental care faster, safer, and more comfortable for our patients, and the Wand delivers all three benefits in one tiny, handheld device! The hand tool disguises the needle, diminishing phobia and anxiety. The tiny, hidden needle is so gentle patients barely feel it. Best of all, we can pinpoint the exact area to numb, using the computer-guided system, so you don’t have to spend the whole day with a numb or tingly mouth.
