The Wand does Magic for Patients Scared of Needles
article by Raha Sepehrara
Dental phobia is a common phenomenon. It is a condition where people are afraid to see a dentist and, in its severe form, it may result in dangerous issues and tooth loss. Dental phobias come in a variety of types. Many patients have a fear of dentists, numbness, pain, the dental drill or even diagnosis. The majority of patients with dental phobias are, usually, not looking forward to going to the dentist because of the possible injection. That being noted; dentistry has evolved so much in the last few years and people have nothing to be afraid of after the introduction of sedation industry that has helped hundreds of patients worldwide get over their dental phobia.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
At sedation dentistry, medication is distributed in the patient’s body and helps them relax during their dental procedures. It is not that they are sleeping (unless they are under general anesthesia), rather than being in a relaxed state of mind, where they feel no pain whatsoever.
There are different types of sedation used in dentistry.
At the Dental Suite we usually use IV sedation, during which the patient receives the sedative drug distributed intravenously (through the vein). That way, they experience the sedative effects more quickly! Furthermore, the dentist is allowed to adjust the sedation level at all times. Other than IV moderate sedation, oral sedation or inhaled sedation can be used. It becomes apparent that with sedation dentistry, every dental procedure is made easier and the patient feels far more comfortable and relaxed.
Besides the fact that the dentists here are Dental Suite are very experienced providing sedation dentistry, we have also amazing results in helping patients deal with their dental phobia(s). What we have accomplished is deliver the injection in the most painless way ever imagined, thanks to The Wand, that the patients have named “The Magic Wand”. Truth being told; they have every reason for that!
The Wand is a computerised device that gently pushes local anaesthetic in the area surrounding a tooth which requires dental treatment. It looks entirely different to ordinary syringes as it looks like and is held like a pen, making it less threatening. The local anaesthetic is delivered slowly and gently. When our patients have dental treatment and are numbed up with the Wand, they don’t even realise that they have had local anaesthetic. It is really AMAZING.
To sum up, the Wand is an excellent tool to use on patients who are nervous, phobic and don’t like dental injections. This experience will be totally different for you, and you will no longer dread being numbed up.
