Does the CompuDent Wand really offer painless injections?

CompuDent and the WandNeedle phobia is a primary reason why many people dread the visit to the dentist.  Just a glimpse of that classic metal syringe can strike instant panic.  Not to mention the sight of a few finger flicks to release any bubbles.  That’s where the CompuDent system comes in, featuring the Wand – a small lightweight handpiece that resembles a pen.  It’s also referred to as the Single Tooth Anesthesia System.

The Wand provides more accurate and painless oral anesthesia. The computer controlled system allows for an even-flow delivery of anesthetic in a very comfortable, non-threatening manner. It eliminates the “bee sting” effect – which can be a painful consequence from a surge of fluid into a confined tissue area. Furthermore, certain injections made possible with the Wand minimize the unnecessary numbness of the tongue, cheek, and face. Imagine leaving the dentist’s office and being able to feel your face?!  Where was this device when I was growing up in Western New York?

Since the rate of flow is controlled by a computer, the injection is guaranteed to be slow, steady, and more comfortable.  CompuDent featuring the Wand handpiece provides painless injections for all routine dental treatment including root canals, crowns, fillings, and cleanings. Milestone Scientific has made significant progress in dental comfort.
