You’ve had a cavity for longer than you’d like to admit and there’s one reason that’s keeping you from getting the oral healthcare you deserve: your fear of needles. You know that the tooth will need to be numbed to have the filling placed, but you can’t stomach the thought of being injected in the dental chai, even if the needle will eventually make your mouth numb and eliminate pain. But what if there was a way to give you local anesthetic without the use of painful injections? With The Wand technology at Family Dental on Louetta, you can be pain free during your treatment. Learn more about this innovative alternative in this post from your premier dentist in Spring.
What Is The Wand?
Dr. Kelly LeBlanc explains that The Wand is a specially-designed computer assisted anesthesia delivery system. Dr. LeBlanc will use a topical numbing cream to make The Wand completely painless, and the smart software will inject the numbing agent at exactly the right speed and pressure depending on the tissue makeup of your gums in that area. Then, as the anesthetic takes effect, you can relax knowing no needle was used to make you feel so comfortable.
When Is The Wand Used?
Dr. LeBlanc will use The Wand just like any average dentist would use a syringe to deliver local anesthesia. From cavities to deep cleanings to root canal therapy and dental crowns, The Wand is your trusted solution for pain-free anesthesia delivery.
Does The Wand Work?
This innovative new technology has been thoroughly researched and proven to be both safe and effective. Although you’ll receive the same medication that you would via a syringe and traditional injection, with The Wand, the delicate delivery from the computerized injection device will make going to the dentist an enjoyable activity, no matter how complex your dental needs are.
How Can I Take Care Of My Teeth?
If you’d like to prevent cavities and other dental problems that would require medication from The Wand during treatment, follow these tips:
- 2×2 – Brush your teeth gently for two minutes, twice a day.
- Floss at least once a day to clean where toothbrushes can’t reach.
- Limit sugar, especially in beverages like sodas and fruit juices.
- Say cheese and eat other dairy products that are filled with calcium to keep enamel strong.
- See Dr. LeBlanc at least twice a year for preventive checkups and cleanings.
