The Wand

The Wand is a computer-controlled local anesthesia delivery system designed as an alternative to the traditional method of numbing a tooth to perform a dental procedure. A state-of-the-art digital platform for local anesthesia, The Wand controls the injected flow rate and pressure with which the anesthetic is being delivered for a more accurate, consistent, and painless patient experience. In addition to being a gentler approach to local anesthesia, The Wand eliminates the lingering numbness of the tongue, lips, and face that typically accompanies dental procedures with conventional syringe injections. Delivering painless and rapid onset single tooth anesthesia greatly reduces patient anxiety, thereby making dental work a more positive and comfortable experience. With the rapid onset of anesthesia facilitated by The Wand, along with the absence of collateral numbness, the dentist can perform bi-lateral dental procedures that would otherwise require extra visits.
