Here at Llanishen Dental Centre we put the comfort and wellbeing of our patients at the forefront of everything we do. With this in mind we have invested in the Wand, a unique technology that allows us to deliver pain-free local anaesthetic.
The Wand was developed to replace the traditional dental syringe. Using cutting-edge technology the flow of anaesthetic is computer-controlled by the CompuDent hardware, while the Wand delivers exactly the amount of anaesthetic you need, at exactly the right speed. The Wand allows your dentist to administer your anaesthetic more effectively and this results in a more pleasant and less painful experience for the patient.
The Wand is light and easy to use, which is of benefit to both the patient and the dentist. Regardless of what type of injection is required and in which area of the mouth, your dentist is able to reach comfortably and apply the anaesthetic accurately enabling them to numb up just one tooth rather than a larger portion of your mouth. There is no residual numbness of the tongue, cheek or lip allowing patients to go about their routine and eat, drink and speak as normal after their appointment. The Wand resembles a modern piece of computer equipment and the needle to administer the anaesthetic is disguised in a small hand piece that looks like a pen, ideal when dealing with a nervous patient, putting them at their ease.
The response to the Wand has been fantastic, with many of our patients commenting that they barely felt the injection at all. Read more about the Wand here.
