Too good to be true, dentists know that patients hate ”the needle”. The answer, a small hand piece that looks like a pen controlled by a computer allows the dentist to anaesthetise even the most difficult tooth virtually painlessly!
We know that some patients get more nervous than others at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. That’s where the CompuDent system comes in, featuring the Wand – a small lightweight handpiece that resembles a pen. The computer controlled system allows for an even-flow delivery of anesthetic in a very comfortable, non-threatening manner. It eliminates the “bee sting” effect – the painful consequence from a surge of fluid into a confined tissue area. Even more, certain injections made possible with the Wand minimize the unnecessary numbness of the tongue, cheek, and face. Imagine leaving the dentist’s office without a “fat lip!
For our nervous patients, we do offer a conscious IV sedation. Please visit our Sedation section for more information.
