Home - Pain Free Dentistry

We understand that coming to the dentist can be a traumatic experience for some people, which is why we are committed to ensuring that pain is kept to a minimum during procedures. We have invested in a number of techniques which help you the patient have a more comfortable experience.

The Wand - Controlled Anaesthesia

The Wand was developed to replace the traditional syringe in dentistry. As much of a revolution as an evolution, this computer 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.

When it comes to going to the dentist you might not look forward to that appointment. However The Wand makes the visit easier and more comfortable for you and your family.

What can you expect with The Wand?

The first thing you can expect is to smile as The Wand is a computer unit and looks like a modern piece of equipment, unlike an old fashioned syringe. You'll notice that your dentist will look more comfortable using The Wand hand piece, as it is simply held like a pen. You might not even know you've had an injection – that's what some patients say – "When are you going to do it?

Your dentist might choose to numb up just one tooth. There will be no numbness of the tongue, cheek or lip. You return to your routine able to drink and smile.

You can expect to be so happy that you tell all your friends and neighbours about your great experience at the dentist.

How does it work?

  • The Wand uses a small hand piece that looks like a pen.
  • The Wand gives a supply of anaesthetic in a slow comfortable manner.
  • The Wand uses a unique new technology, which is unlike any other.
  • The Wand works at a low pressure and a slow rate that gives an improved anaesthesia.
  • The Wand works more effectively, resulting in a more pleasant experience

Bubblegum Numbing Gel

Topical Anaesthesia (or “numbing gel” in dentist-speak) is used to numb your gums or other tissues before an injection, so that you can’t feel the needle glide in.

  • Topical Anaesthetic = an anaesthetic agent that is applied externally to tissues like gums
  • Local Anaesthetic = an anaesthetic agent that is injected with a needle

Numbing gel contains an anaesthetic agent, most commonly benzocaine (usually at a concentration of 20%). A cotton swab or q-tip is used to apply a small amount of gel to the injection site.
