Comfortable Dental Anesthesia in Rockford IL
What is the Wand?
The WAND is a computer-controlled local anesthetic injection system that helps conquer fear, pain and anxiety. A microprocessor controls the flow rate/volume ratio to ensure safe, virtually painless profound anesthesia.
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.
It is estimated that nearly 50% of the U.S. population, alone, experience some anxiety when visiting the dentist. Moreover, 40 million Americans are termed “dental phobics,” persons with such severe anxiety that they avoid dental care altogether. In fact, nearly 25% of all dental appointments are canceled because of this phobia.
