Your comfort is our top priority at Apex Dental. Many patients feel anxiety when visiting the dentist, particularly when treatment is required. Dr. Robert Gauthier offers his patients one of the latest in dental patient comforts, wand delivered anesthetic, in his Northborough, MA dental office. This modern dental technology helps keep oral health treatment pain-free and comfortable.
How Does Wand Anesthetic Work?
The typical injection-style anesthetic can cause pain and discomfort. Many patients cringe at the mere sight of a syringe. Injection style anesthesia is often concentrated in too small an area causing it to dissipate quickly leaving the patient in pain before the procedure is complete. Or injections can cause too much of the surrounding tissue to go numb which causes embarrassing and uncomfortable drooling to occur.
The wand delivery manages anesthesia in a slow drip from a pen-like device. The wand, which actually looks like a “Magic Wand” drops a topical numbing agent on then in the injection site and then delivers the anesthetic to the patient, delivering the anesthesia in a more comfortable way than traditionally delivered anesthetic. Our patients love how quick and easy the wand is.
