At Dorval Dental, we know that some children have a fear of needles and syringes. The Wand is an alternative to regular anesthesia delivery. Pain is often felt when getting a shot for local anesthesia. This pain is usually caused by the anesthesia being injected quickly into the tissue. The Wand, on the other hand, controls the flow rate of the injected anesthesia, slowing it down and offering two to three times more comfort than a traditional syringe. With The Wand, children experience a much more positive dental appointment. In fact, even removing the needle and replacing it with The Wand’s pen-like appearance can make the environment seem a lot less threatening to a child.
