The Wand Anesthesia in Lakeview & South Loop

Art of Modern Dentistry now offers The Wand, a revolutionary new computer controlled local anesthesia injection system that can provide a more comfortable and effective anesthetic delivery.

Whether you get nervous about injections or not, The Wand allows a more predictably comfortable injection, especially in the more sensitive areas such as the palate or front of your mouth. It also allows the use of less anesthetic and at certain times, techniques that can be used to eliminate the collateral numbing of your face, tongue and lips.

When you get an injection, the needle is not what causes the main discomfort of an injection. Discomfort for most patients comes from the pressure and volume of the fluid going into the tissues. The microprocessor inside The Wand automatically compensates for different tissue densities. The anesthetic is delivered at a constant pressure and volume that’s typically below the threshold of pain. The computer also provides a flow of anesthetic directly ahead of the needle. This numbs the site of insertion and develops a “pathway of anesthesia” so you hardly feel the needle at all. The Wand delivers the anesthetic at an optimal flow rate for a comfortable injection every time.

Art of Modern Dentistry is committed to bringing the latest technology and techniques to it patients. The Wand is one of a number of special technologies that we utilize to provide our patients with the best in oral care and comfort.
