At Dr. Schwan’s office we are always looking for new ways to increase patient comfort when going to the dentist. One of the best ways we have found to provide comfortable dental care is to invest in some of the latest dental technologies that are available to us. One of the latest systems we have added to our dental practice is the STA Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia System® or “The Wand”.
Its all about precision
What exactly does “The Wand” do to help with patient comfort? The STA Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia System® is a computer controlled local anesthesia system that allows us to numb a very specific area of the mouth for treatment. The Dental Wand uses pressure sensitive feedback that allows us to precisely target an area of the tooth or mouth, and then to apply just the right amount of anesthetic to ensure the best results.
No more big mouth
You know that feeling when you leave the dentist? Its embarrassing sometimes: your tongue feels like it is twice its size and you feel like you have no control over your lip. An extra benefit of The Dental Wand is that when you leave the dentist, you don’t have that awful feeling that half of your mouth numb hours after your appointment. The STA Dental Wand minimizes that chances of having that kind of discomfort, so you can leave the dentist and get back to your busy schedule without worry.
The STA Wand: As threatening as a pen
The STA Wand is lightweight and looks like a pen. Because of this, it is less threatening than a typical dental syringe and insures comfortable pain-free dental injections. You will notice that the dentist will look more comfortable when administering The Wand because it is held simply like a pen. Our customers are always commenting to us how the Wand system has relieved their pain and anxiety they associated with traditional dental injections. We hope you’ll agree, and that you will leave the office thinking “Thats the best shot I ever had!”.
A New Dental Anesthetic?
There hasn’t been a big breakthrough in dental local anesthesia in over 60 years, but the Onset mixing pen by onPhrarma is an interesting one. Normally, unbuffered Lidocaine has a ph of 3.5, which is the same as lemon juice. You can imagine the sting you get when a little lemon juice gets in a small cut on your finger, thats why the first part of the dental injection is irritating! The Onset is a chair-side system that allows the dental team to buffer the local anesthetic and raise the ph so the resulting in a sting free injection. The process also reduces soreness in your mouth, as a 7.4 ph doesn’t damage soft tissues like the lower ph does. This is another win for pain free dentistry!
