the wand

At Precision Digital Dentistry, we pursue the latest that modern dentistry has to offer. We implement state-of-the-art technology across all dental services, from general dentistry and pediatric dentistry to cosmetic dentistry and digital orthodontics. When it comes to treating patients in Bridgewater, Dr. Joyce Guojun Ma is proud to offer painless dental fillings using The Wand®. The Wand hand piece, presented by Milestone Scientific, is ergonomically designed to administer anesthesia injections with much greater comfort than other injection methods. Dr. Ma has been highly trained to use The Wand® and is one of few dentists to offer this innovative technology to patients in New Jersey.

We understand that many patients have anxiety or fear about going to the dentist, especially when they have to get a dental filling. The anticipated pain that accompanies the anesthesia injection is what often escalates their anxiety. Now there is a favorable alternative for both kids and adults when it comes to getting a dental filling. Our practice routinely offers the wand to ensure your comfort is maintained throughout your entire procedure. It can also be used during other restorative procedures and in conjunction with other sedation dentistry methods for a complete painless experience.

How Does The Wand® Work?

The Wand is a computer controlled injection tool that delivers the most accurate delivery of anesthesia in the most non-threatening way. The Wand® uses a syringe-free, pen-like device that is connected to a computer. Before its tiny needle is even inserted, the computer delivers a small amount of anesthetic so that the injection site can begin to numb before the needle actually penetrates the skin or tissue.

The Wand delivers an accurate and consistent amount of anesthesia that can be precisely adjusted in pressure and flow. This is a highlighted advantage because the primary reason for injection anxiety originates from the initial discomfort of the anesthetic being injected too quickly. Its unique design allows Dr. Ma to have improved tactile control and inject sensitive or hard to reach places in the mouth with ease.
