Painless Local Anesthesia Using a Computer – “The Wand®”

Many patients find the syringe at the dentist as the most unpleasant part of the treatment. So we propose a new procedure for local anesthesia, which does not cause any pain.
This new computer-controlled dental anesthesia technology makes it much easier for patients with anxiety and makes dental treatment much easier.

How does it work;

“The Wand®” is a new computer-controlled anesthesia technique in which the anesthetic is injected at an extremely slow rate. So the tip of the muzzle always moves to already numb tissue and is completely painless.

At the same time, the innovative DPS (Dynamic Pressure Sensing) technology helps to monitor infusion pressure and control the flow rate of the anesthetic. Many patients believe that inserting the needle during anesthesia causes pain.
But the truth is that the pain is actually caused by the injection of the anesthetic. So this pain that is created in a conventional local anesthesia can be avoided with this innovative method of anesthesia.

What is STA?

STA (Single Tooth Anaesthesia) means anesthesia of a single tooth.

The method of intra-ligament anesthesia

An alternative method of anesthesia is intra-ligament anesthesia, which is suitable for both upper and lower jaw teeth. “Intra-ligament” means that the anesthetic is inserted into the periodontal space, ie the tissues around the tooth.
The anesthetic solution is diffused to the end of the tooth root and the tooth and the surrounding tissues are anesthetized within a few seconds. A little anesthetic is given per tooth and especially benefit patients with a cardiovascular problem. With the right technique and equipment, such as “The Wand®”,
injection pain is minimal and significantly less than other local anesthesia techniques. The duration of action is sufficient for almost all dental treatments.

The advantages of “The Wand®” at a glance:

  • Local dental anesthesia does not cause pain and in particular the pain of pressure during the injection of the anesthetic is eliminated
  • Only the tooth to be treated is anesthetized, without anesthetizing the tissues surrounding the tooth (ie the lips, tongue and face are not affected by this type of anesthesia!)
  • Quick action without waiting time
  • Applying computer-controlled dental anesthesia is gentle on the tissue and requires less anesthetic than applying with a conventional syringe.
  • The numbness goes away immediately after treatment
  • Patients can eat, drink, talk or be in an appointment right after dental treatment
