Stay Comfortable with the CompuDent Wand
Patient comfort is one of our primary concerns, so we are proud to have integrated the CompuDent Wand into our practice. The Wand is a pen-like, computerized local anesthesia delivery unit.
How the Wand Works
Injections can be irritating for many reasons, and one cause is anesthesia that is concentrated in a small area until it dissipates. Anesthesia administered too fast can be painful.
CompuDent manages the flow and volume of anesthesia being delivered, and it also offers more accuracy for the area being numbed. The Wand, through which the regulated anesthesia flows, does not look or feel like a syringe. A drop of topical numbing agent first numbs the injection site, and then the needle creates a comfortable injection pathway.
Helping You Relax
The Wand helps patients relax before, during, and after procedures. Beforehand, patients have confidence instead of anxiety; during treatment, they receive regulated medication to keep them comfortable; and afterwards, they can return to normal activity for the rest of the day. The Wand – it’s like magic!
