Learn About our Painless Wand Anesthesia Available at Taylor Street Dental!
Created on February 28, 2019
At Taylor Street Dental, we understand that many patients have dental anxiety because of the fear of anesthetic needles. In order to make our patients comfortable, we have to provide anesthetics, especially for more invasive procedures. However, we don’t have to provide anesthesia with the use of needles. Thanks to continued dental advances, patients who visit our practice can now have their anesthesia administered via a painless wand.
The wand is an anesthetic delivery system available at Taylor Street Dental that is used to eliminate the need for needles. By integrating the wand into our practice, we have been able to provide patients with pain-free appointments. This pen-like handpiece and device administer anesthetics directly where it is needed without an injection. The device properly manages the flow and volume of the anesthesia during treatment, and ensure precision and accuracy in the area of treatment. Topical numbing agents are used to initially numb the injection site before the wand is even inserted into the mouth.
Another problem with traditional anesthetics administered by a needle is not only pain but the fact that the tissues may be numbed for sometimes hours after the appointment, causing patients to experience difficulty speaking or cause them to drool. This can make it difficult to get back to work, school, and other activities immediately after a dental visit. Because our painless wand anesthesia provides just the right amount of anesthetics for each treatment, patients will not experience these long after-effects of traditional anesthesia.
At Taylor Street Dental, our patients love visiting thanks to the investment we have made into our painless wand anesthesia. We encourage patients to ask about it when they visit for their appointments and learn more about how it works.
