The Wand STA – Single Tooth Anaesthesia System®

The Wand STA (single tooth anaesthesia) System is the easy alternative where local anaesthesia is required, having many advantages over a standard syringe.

Many patients believe that needle insertion is what causes discomfort during an injection, when in fact most of the pain is caused by the flow of the anaesthetic.

The mere sight of a dental syringe and the thought of having an injection by the dentist can easily make most patients wish they were somewhere else. For patients, this fear can be costly.

At the heart of this device is an onboard microprocessor, which guides the anaesthetic flow rate. The microprocessor inside The Wand™ automatically compensates for different tissue densities and the anaesthetic itself is delivered at a constant pressure and volume so that the injection itself is hardly felt.

The Wand

Is painless numbing up possible?
With The Wand it is.

The Wand was developed to replace the traditional syringe in dentistry. As much of a revolution as an evolution, this computer? the controlled anaesthetic delivery system is a logical progression from the syringe which has seen little change since its invention more than 150 years ago. With The Wand, dentists can bring one of dentistry’s last remaining antiquated designs into the 21st century.
