Virtually Pain Free Dentistry Sydney
With The Wand, we are able to wish away your dental pain.
- The Wand
- Sedation dentistry
- Dental anaesthetic
If you find that you generally feel uncomfortable or anxious around needles, The Wand can help eliminate dental pain.
How does it work?
The precision of The Wand delivery system decreases the discomfort you feel during injections. This is achieved by controlling both the pressure and flow rate of the anaesthetic fluid. In most cases, the patient doesn’t experience any pain at all during pain free dentistry.

Frequently asked questions about The Wand
What makes it virutally ‘pain free’?
Usually, if you feel pain during an injection it is due to the pressure of the anaesthetic being delivered (whether that be too quickly/slowly). The Wand is computer programmed to precisely deliver anaesthetic so you will be getting exactly how much you need at a steady pace.
How safe is The Dental Wand?
The main benefit behind using The Wand is that it takes away the possibility of ‘human error’ with a self -retracting safety feature making it (in most cases) a safe method to deliver anaesthetic. It has become a popular tool because of its precise control and is very reliable for injections in even very difficult areas.
Who is a good candidate for the dental wand?
The Dental Wand is a computer-controlled local anaesthesia delivery system used in dentistry. It is designed to provide more accurate and comfortable anaesthesia administration compared to traditional syringe injections. While the Dental Wand can be used for various dental procedures, it may be particularly beneficial for the following individuals:
- Children who are afraid of needles.
- Patients with dental anxiety or phobia.
- Individuals with a fear of needles.
- Patients with a sensitive gag reflex.
- Those who have difficulty getting numb with traditional injections.
Ultimately, the suitability of the Dental Wand for a particular patient is best determined by a dentist or dental professional who can assess the individual’s specific needs and circumstances. They can evaluate whether the Dental Wand is an appropriate option based on factors such as the procedure being performed, the patient’s medical history, and personal preferences.
What is the advantage of using a Dental Wand?
The advantages of using the Dental Wand in dentistry include:
- Increased accuracy in anaesthesia delivery.
- Enhanced comfort during injections.
- Reduction in needle fear and anxiety.
- Minimised numbness of adjacent areas.
- Improved patient experience and satisfaction.
It’s important to note that the suitability of the Dental Wand may vary depending on the specific dental procedure and the individual patient. Dentists and dental professionals can assess the patient’s needs and determine whether the Dental Wand is the appropriate choice for their case.
How does the Wand work in dentistry?
The Dental Wand is a computer-controlled local anaesthesia delivery system used in dentistry. Here’s how it works:
- Pen-like device: The Dental Wand consists of a handheld pen-like device that is comfortable to hold and manoeuvre. It contains a small needle-like tube called a “wand” that is connected to a computerised unit.
- Computer-controlled system: The Dental Wand’s computerised unit controls the delivery of the anaesthesia. It allows the dentist or dental professional to precisely adjust the flow rate and pressure of the anaesthetic solution.
- Slow and controlled delivery: The dentist places the wand tip at the desired injection site in the patient’s mouth. As the dentist activates the system, the anaesthetic solution is delivered slowly and in a controlled manner through the wand’s tube.
- Targeted anaesthesia: The slow and controlled delivery of the anaesthetic helps to minimise discomfort. It allows the dentist to target specific nerves or tissues more accurately, ensuring effective numbing of the treatment area.
- Needle-free option (optional): Some Dental Wand systems offer a needle-free option, where the anaesthetic is delivered through the wand without the use of a traditional syringe needle. This can be beneficial for patients who have a fear of needles or experience needle phobia.
Overall, the Dental Wand’s computer-controlled system provides more precise and comfortable anaesthesia administration compared to traditional syringe injections, resulting in a more positive dental experience for patients.
