The Wand® STA
The traditional dental syringe is the #1 cause of stress in the dental office and the biggest source of anxiety and fear for the patient. Our office utilizes The Wand STA unit. The Wand STA delivers a computer-regulated flow of anesthetic that provides immediate, pain-free dental anesthesia for all injection types. The Wand features Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA), a new injection that effortlessly delivers anesthetic to the PDL space for profound anesthesia of a single tooth. By delivering anesthesia to a single tooth, we can eliminate unnecessary lip and tongue numbness.
The Onset Approach
In our office, we make getting dental anesthesia painless by utilizing The Onset Approach. By buffering our anesthetic, procedures are easier and more comfortable for the patients. There is less stress in our practice. Additionally, by buffering our anesthetic, patients get numb so fast that we can complete procedures without ever having to leave our patient's side. This means patients are finished with their procedures faster. This helps us deliver a better patient experience.
Quieter Electric Handpieces
With electric handpieces (drills), procedures are able to be completed faster and with more efficiency. Patients notice that our equipment doesn't make that "irritating whine." Electric handpieces are noticeably quieter and don't vibrate like traditional equipment. Patients notice their time in the chair is reduced because Dr. Marilyn is able to be more efficient. We have yet to have a patient complain about spending less time in the chair.
