Computerized Anesthesia

Comfortable, Computerized Local Anesthesia Delivery

Patient comfort is one of our primary concerns, so we are proud to have integrated the Wand into our practice. CompuDent, which is the brain behind the Wand, is a computerized local anesthesia delivery unit. The Wand is actually the pen-like hand piece that administers the anesthesia. No more big syringes! Welcome to the space age…

As you can see in the photo, the “hardware” looks similar to a miniature computer tower.

How it Works

Injections can be irritating for many reasons, but one pain factor is that the anesthesia is concentrated in a small area until it dissipates. Anesthesia administered too fast can also cause pain. Another irritation stems from too much tissue going numb, which can leave a patient drooling after an appointment.

CompuDent manages the flow and volume of anesthesia being delivered, and it also offers more accuracy for the area being numbed. The Wand, through which the regulated anesthesia flows, does not look or feel like a syringe. It looks just like a ball point pen. A drop of topical numbing agent first numbs the injection site, and then the needle creates a comfortable injection pathway.

The Magic!

The Wand helps patients relax before, during, and after procedures. Beforehand, patients have confidence instead of anxiety; during treatment, they receive regulated medication to keep them comfortable; and afterwards, they can return to normal activity for the rest of the day. The Wand its like magic!
