Is painless numbing up possible? With The Wand it is.

wand-sta_img1The Wand was developed to replace the traditional syringe in dentistry. As much of a revolution as an evolution, this computer controlled anaesthetic delivery system is a logical progression from the syringe which has seen little change since its invention more than 150 years ago. With The Wand, dentists can bring one of dentistry’s last remaining antiquated designs into the 21st century. When it comes to going to the dentist you might not look forward to that appointment. However The Wand makes the visit easier and more comfortable for you and your family.

What can you expect with The Wand?

The first thing you can expect is to smile as The Wand is a computer unit and looks like a modern piece of equipment, unlike an old fashioned syringe.

You’ll notice that your dentist will look more comfortable using The Wand handpiece, as it is simply held like a pen.

You might not even know you’ve had an injection – that’s what some patients say – “When are you going to do it? Your dentist might choose to numb up just one tooth. There will be no numbness of the tongue, cheek or lip.You return to your routine able to drink and smile.

You can expect to be so happy that you tell all your friends and neighbours about your great experience at the dentist.

How does it work?

  • The Wand uses a small hand piece that looks like a pen.
  • The Wand gives a supply of anaesthetic in a slow comfortable manner.
  • The Wand uses a unique new technology, which is unlike any other.
  • The Wand works at a low pressure and a slow rate that gives an improved anaesthesia.
  • The Wand works more effectively, resulting in a more pleasant experience.

Dental Excellence now has available the latest technology in the STA “Wand”, a computerised local anaesthetic delivery system. The advantages for you and your family are:

  • A more comfortable injection, the computer can deliver the anaesthetic at a rate often below the pain threshold.
  • A more accurate injection, the lightweight and slim wand allows a better tactile feel for the dentist and the computer can assist in locating the target site. Greater accuracy can mean a reduced need for another injection and a more effective anaesthesia allowing comfort during dental procedures.
  • The ability to numb a single tooth with the STA technique, where indicated, the anaesthetic can numb the tooth worked on only, without the lip and tongue being affected.
  • The sight of the large metal syringe is now replaced by a slim “Wand”, reducing fear especially for children.
