The Wand

What to know about the role of The Wand in dental care

At Smilecraft we use attainting patient service excellence as a driving force in all that we do. We don’t just ‘talk’ about patient comfort but take active measures to ensure it. We understand how unsettling the thought of certain invasive dental procedures can be for patients.

Some patients may have had the misfortune of receiving dental care at the hands of uncaring dentists resulting in them developing dental phobia. Others may not like the effects of a numbed mouth after receiving anaesthetic administered through a syringe. By relying on modern anaesthesia techniques such as The Wand Stevenage, we circumvent all the above issues and more. We take a look at this clever piece of equipment that has changed the way in which patients receive dental care.

What is The Wand Stevenage and how does it work

The days of the syringe to administer pain-relieving medication to patients receiving dental care are numbered thanks to the introduction of The Wand Stevenage. The device can be used effectively in a range of dental care services, from restorative treatments to cosmetic procedures. Here are a few important takeaways about this game changing device.

The Wand is a computer-assisted anaesthesia administering system that was specifically developed to replace the old fashioned syringe system and avoid all related challenges that arose with its use.

The introduction of the device has realised the possibility of painless injections. More than this, the device is found to be more accurate in locating the exact spot where the anaesthetic would provide most benefit to the patient and highly effective in delivering a great patient experience. Patients are completely relaxed and at ease during the treatment process.

The pen-like device proffers a slow and gentle supply of local anaesthetic to the localised site and because it looks more like a pen than a syringe, it is less likely to scare off patients.

Unlike the numbing sensation produced by traditional syringe injections, this excellent tool sidesteps the numbness to ensure less pain, more comfort, reduced anxiety and minimal downtime for recovery. Patients can be up and at it in no time at all.

Sedation dentistry has completely changed the way patients see and feel about receiving invasive dental care. In the past these procedures at the hands of an indifferent dentist could be a nerve-wrecking experience resulting in patients avoiding the dentist chair at all costs and jeopardising their oral health. To encourage and assist dental phobic patients to take care of their dental health needs, sedation dentistry is used to helping patients relax and be comfortable whilst in the dental chair. With the use of The Wand, patients may not even be aware that an anaesthetic is being administered.

If you need an invasive dental procedure performed but hate the thought of being injected, then our painless anaesthesia method is just the thing.
