If you immediately feel a little nervous when you start thinking about an upcoming trip to the dentist’s office, you are not alone.  

According to researchers with the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, between 50% and 80% of adults in the U.S. have at least some sort of dental anxiety. Also, for 20% of adults, this anxiety is severe.  More than 20% of dentally anxious patients do not see a dentist regularly, and up to 15% of anxious patients avoid oral health care altogether. 

The driving force for most dental anxiety is a fear of painful procedures. However, advancing technology is finding solutions to eliminate this problem at the source. 

Meet the Wand Painless Injection System

A revolutionary development in the new era of painless anesthesia in dentistry. The Wand dental injection is an emerging new technology that has been in various stages of development and has been used for more than 25 years 

Far more advanced than traditional syringe-applied anesthesia, the Wand presents a new form of painless dental anesthesia that is more effective and results in much better experiences for patients.  

In fact, according to research published in the National Library of Medicine, the average injection pain and post-operative discomfort ratings with the Wand were lower than those with conventional syringes, while the anesthetic efficacy remained excellent. 

So, how does the Wand system work? Where can you find the most experienced Wand injection system providers outside of a basic online search for “dentists that use the wand near me?” 

Here is a quick tutorial on everything you need to know about the Wand painless injection system. You will also have a better understanding of how you can eliminate dental anxiety by finding a caring and professional dental group that uses this system close to home. 

What is the Wand Dental Injection System? 

The Wand dental injection system is also known as the Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia system. It is an anesthesia distribution system that only numbs the tooth (or teeth) that requires a dental procedure.  

The system relies on advanced technology via a computerized sensor that automatically regulates and controls the flow of anesthetic during the injection, using a technique that effectively numbs the tissue as it proceeds.  

How is Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia Different from Traditional Syringe Injections? 

For one thing – and on a purely aesthetic level – the Wand looks nothing like a traditional syringe and needle.  

Instead, it looks more like a pen with a cord attached which connects to the software and computer guidance that is leading the process. As a result, it’s a great alternative if you are one of the 10% of Americans who have a big fear of needles. 

 However, outside of mere appearance, the Wand has several clear-cut advantages over a traditional syringe.  

When it comes to anesthesia injections, the pain tends not to come from the needle itself but from the delivery of the anesthetic into your tissue. 

The traditional anesthetic delivery method uses a dentist-guided needle to inject liquid anesthetic directly into your gum tissue. However, the Wand system uses a small probe that slides into the space between your tooth and gum tissue, resulting in a better and more precise delivery that eliminates the pain. In essence, you won’t even feel the pen-like device as it targets the gums surrounding the tooth or teeth that need to be treated. 

Another contributing factor when it comes to traditional injection pain is flow and temperature. The Wand also eliminates these issues by providing the exact amount of anesthetic required in a measured process.  

Does the Dental Wand Hurt? 

 Simply, no it doesn’t cause pain. There’s a reason why it’s called the Wand “painless injection system,” after all. By providing this computerized control and advanced technology, your dentist has a guiding hand to deliver the right amount of temperature-controlled anesthetic to the part of the gums where the pain is inherently minimized. As a result, the anesthesia step in a dental procedure is pain-free and simplified, eliminating discomfort from the first part of your treatment. 

Is the Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia System Effective? 

Absolutely! Because of this advanced technology, your dentist can determine the exact amount of anesthetic for the complete procedure and the area being treated. You won’t have to worry about miscalculated injections on any front – instead, the Wand ensures a pain-free experience from start to finish. 

How Do I Know if the Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia System is the Best Fit for Me? 

If you have any anxiety about going to the dentist – especially if you need more than a simple and routine tooth cleaning – then you’ll want to find a caring and professional dental group that relies on the Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia system. 

This is especially true if you’ve had a few stubborn but somewhat-ignorable issues with your teeth that have prevented you from exploring your treatment options.  

Your oral health should never be neglected and ignoring or procrastinating an issue with your teeth and gums – even if it’s minimal – can cause long-term problems and exacerbate the problem.  

Simply put, you should never delay a trip to the dentist just because you are worried about potential pain– because you don’t have to be.
