Computerized Anesthesia

Computerized Anesthetic Delivery System
Why Do You Use a Computerized Anesthetic Delivery System?

We know that some patients get more nervous than others do at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. That’s why this office performs anesthetic injections with a revolutionary system called The WAND. It doesn’t look or feel like a syringe.

The WAND helps us provide a more effective anesthetic delivery and the onset of anesthesia is often faster. You’re more comfortable throughout the procedure, and we may be able to use new techniques so you won’t experience the lingering numbness of your tongue, lips and face.

How does a Computerized Anesthetic Delivery System Work?

The microprocessor inside The WAND automatically ensures a steady flow rate regardless of tissue density. Constant, slow flow is one key to virtually pain-free injections. The computer provides a flow of anesthetic directly ahead of the needle. This creates a “pathway of anesthesia” so you hardly feel the needle at all.

The source of discomfort for most injections, however, isn’t the needle; it’s the flow of the anesthetic into your tissue. The WAND delivers the anesthetic at an optimal flow rate for a comfortable injection.

The WAND is an excellent example of our efforts to bring you the latest dental technology and to help all of our patients have a pleasant, positive visit at our office. We’ve taken the fear, anxiety and pain out of dental anesthetic injections for a more pleasant dental experience.
