We know that some patients get more nervous than others at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. At Quadrant we are keen to make the experience of visiting the dentist as comfortable as possible and by use of “The Wand” we are able to provide a painless dental injection solution. The Wand is essentially a computer-controlled dental injection. The flow rate of the local anaesthetic is controlled by a computer. This means that the injection is guaranteed to be slow and steady and therefore comfortable. Most people who have had a bad experience with injections think that needles sting because the skin is pierced. The most common cause of pain during injection of local anaesthetic is infact due to the Dentist injecting into the gums too quickly, the idea of the Wand is to take out the human error. And it doesn’t look scary either!! The handpiece device looks just like a ball point pen (see below). It is even held like a pen! Feel free to ask your dentist for more information.
