Single Teeth Anesthesia

The Wand® by Compudent™

Many patients fear needles even more than they fear the drill. For some, just the sight of the syringe can cause panic. To make all patients comfortable, Dr. Peter D. Gold utilizes the Wand®, a computer-controlled pen that injects anesthetic into the gums and mouth in a stealthy manner. Operated by a foot pedal, the computer base of the unit measures the anesthetic while Dr. Gold places the attached pen on the gum where the procedure will take place. The pen, which has a tiny needle at its tip, administers the anesthetic quickly and painlessly. The pen and the computer base look harmless; indeed, most patients don’t even know it’s a needle.
