If you’ve ever put off an important dental procedure because you were worried about pain and discomfort, you aren’t alone. Many people in America suffer from dental anxiety, and even those who are not afraid of the dentist may be intimidated by a surgery such as a root canal or a wisdom tooth extraction.
But at Smillie Dental, you don’t have to fear pain or discomfort at the dentist. At our cosmetic dentistry practice, we use the very latest digital technology and specialized dental techniques to deliver painless dentistry in Port Orange.
One of the devices we use is called “The Wand”. Read on, and learn more about how this device helps us provide pain-free dentistry!
What Is “The Wand”?
“The Wand” is a computer-assisted system that’s used to deliver local anesthesia to the site of a dental operation. It carefully guides dentists and dental assistants as they perform dental injections.
Traditionally, anesthetic is delivered using a hypodermic needle and syringe. While this is effective, there is usually a bit of pain and discomfort associated with the initial numbing injections. The Wand eliminates this problem, allowing us to provide more excellent patient care with pain-free dentistry in Port Orange.
How Does The Wand Work?
There are a few factors that make The Wand such a great way to deliver numbing agents and anesthetics.
First, The Wand begins to deliver anesthetic before it is placed in the mouth. This creates a “numbing pathway”. As soon as The Wand is used to inject your tooth, the numbing agent takes effect, minimizing pain and discomfort.
It also uses advanced technology to identify intraligamentary tissue quickly, allowing for the best possible injection results.
Finally, The Wand delivers a more precise numbing experience. A single tooth can easily be numbed without the rest of the mouth being affected. This reduces the often-uncomfortable side effects of common numbing agents.

- Faster treatment time – The Wand allows for a faster delivery of numbing agents, compared to a traditional hypodermic syringe. This reduces the overall time spent in the dentist’s chair.
