Navigated Anesthesia: The Wand
The Wand uses, contains an electro-mechanical motor controlled by a central processor unit and a pressure sensor. In contrast, traditional syringe techniques use high-pressure injection that causes pain, irritation and mucosal damage. It results in the patient having no collateral nerve damage, no pain and incredibly quick, predictable anesthesia. Dentists use the wand to eliminate needle (injection) phobia developed due to traditional anesthetic techniques. When done correctly, the patient does not even sense the insertion of the needle tip since topical numbness is established first. There will not be any discomfort at this point because the medication is computer-controlled and administered without pressure.
Using this technique, patients who receive quick-acting medications throughout their therapy will not lose their cooperation with the dentist while still going through a pleasant procedure. Local anesthetic is used to sustain sedation after it has begun and the procedure’s primary goal is to give painless therapy. After 30 to 60 minutes when the effect of the anesthetic has subsided, patients wake up with no recollection of the procedure performed.
