THE WAND ANESTHESIA

The Wand is essentially a computer-controlled dental injection. A computer controls the flow rate of the local anesthetic. This means that the injection is guaranteed to be slow and steady and therefore comfortable. Even though Milestone Scientific – the manufacturers of the Wand – now call their products CompuDent and STA (Single Tooth Anesthesia) System, we’ll still call it the Wand here – because a lot of people with needle phobia describe it as their “Magic Wand”! Most people who have had a bad experience with injections think that needles sting because the skin is pierced, but this is usually not so! Most often, the sting was caused because the anesthetic was fired in too quickly. At River City Dental we want to take out the “human error”. This can be very reassuring for people with previous bad experiences, and our goal is to service our clients with no negative experiences.
