The Wand – Painless Injection System

The Wand – Painless Injection System
Moggill Village Dentist

Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA)

At Moggill dental, one of our goals is to alleviate patients’ pain and discomfort. Therefore, it is ironic that the same injection you get to prepare you for dental procedures puts you through more pain before you can finally receive relief. That is the reason we have The Wand – Painless Injection System in our clinic.

The fear of needles is one of the biggest concerns for dental patients. Due to this fear, many people delay or cancel dental procedures. Although it’s common belief that the needle’s puncture is the source of pain, it’s actually the rate at which the anesthetic comes out of the syringe that causes most of the discomfort.

However, injections may not be appropriate for certain categories of patients despite their effectiveness as a means of delivering anesthesia. These are patients who are anxious of even the simplest of dental procedures, including oral exams, due to severe dental phobias.

Painless Injections in Moggill Village

Moggill Dental is pleased to introduce “The Wand®” – Painless Injection System. “The Wand” is also known as STA (Single Tooth Anesthesia) System; it uses a computer to deliver anesthetics slowly and steadily one tooth at a time, greatly reducing a patient’s discomfort.

The Wand – Painless Injection System

Benefits of Painless Injections

STA allows us to anesthetize one tooth at a time, so recovery is much quicker. Moreover, the anesthesia will wear off within 30-45 minutes after the procedure, and you won’t be left with numbness in your face for hours. STA can get you in and out and back to normal in no time.

The Wand® not only hurts less, but it’s also less intimidating! In terms of size and shape, it is similar to a ballpoint pen, as well as being light and easy to use. Also, using The Wand®, two common injection techniques (the AMSA and P-ASA) are much easier and more effective to perform, making tricky spots like the palate more accessible and less painful. It is suitable for many dental procedures, including fillings, crowns, and root canals.

Call us today if you’ve been avoiding the dentist because of needle-phobia so you can benefit from this new technology!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Most frequent questions and answers
Q. Does the dental wand hurt?

This ensures you get an injection that is pain-free, giving you peace of mind during your
appointment. Additionally, the injection is so precise, you won’t have to worry about your numbing agents wearing off during your appointment.

Q. How does the dental wand work?

Wands use a small hand piece that resembles a pen. It delivers anaesthesia in a slow, comfortable manner. Wands use a new technology that’s unlike anything else available. The Wand operates at a low pressure and a slow rate, providing better anesthesia.

Q. Can the wand be used for extractions?

You can also use the wand to numb just a particular area instead of making your entire face numb, which is useful when extracting a single tooth. Several patients and dentists have reported that the dental wand is a relatively pain-free way to receive their anaesthetic shots.

Q. How does the wand anesthesia work with children?

Pain control is an important part of dentistry, particularly in the management of children and the Wand is ideal for treating children. It is a pain-free alternative to a dental injection.
