State-of-the-art single-tooth anesthesia

Local anesthesia is an essential component of dental care. But let’s be honest – nobody enjoys anesthesia injections. In fact, many patients report that the numbing process is more anxiety-provoking than the procedure itself. No longer!

Flax Dental is proud to be one of the few practices in the area offering the Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) system, which significantly reduces the discomfort associated with the numbing process. This high-tech system completely eliminates the need for multiple uncomfortable shots to numb your mouth. 

Dr. Flax and his amazing team are always working to incorporate the newest technologies and methodologies to provide you with the most effective, comfortable care possible. The Wand is an ideal solution for those who experience dental anxiety, or anyone who deals with stress around needles and anesthesia.

Single Tooth Anesthesia: The Wand

What It Is

The Wand is a state-of-the-art STA system that offers effective, comfortable administration of anesthesia to targeted areas of the mouth with just one injection. It not only makes the numbing process more efficient and comfortable, but it also ensures immediate relief and quicker recovery.

How It Works

Unlike traditional numbing agents which require multiple injections, the Wand delivers effective local anesthesia with just one injection. The device looks and feels much like a pen, with a small needle at the tip which can be hidden to increase comfort for those with dental anxiety. The computerized system regulates injection flow, allowing Dr. Flax to numb only the damaged tooth or teeth. This not only makes the process faster and more comfortable, but it also means you don’t have to deal with unnecessary numbness to entire portions of your mouth.

What To Expect

The Wand administers anesthesia consistently and precisely, offering immediate relief without the stinging sensation of traditional needles. In fact, many patients report that the Wand is entirely pain-free. Because the device targets specific teeth as opposed to whole quadrants of the mouth, you’ll experience relief without the uncomfortable side effects that accompany traditional anesthesia.

FAQs about our Sandy Springs single-tooth anesthesia system

Dr. Flax answers your questions

How long does the numbing process take with the Wand?

While the length of your procedure depends on the specific treatment, the Wand STA system numbs instantly. A single injection can anesthetize multiple teeth, providing immediate pain relief.

Who is a good candidate for the Wand STA system?

The Wand is a wonderful option for anyone requiring restorative dental work on one or more teeth. If you need local anesthesia, the Wand can offer relief for existing pain and prepare your teeth for your procedure. The system’s discrete design and fast delivery application is especially helpful for those with dental anxiety or a phobia around needles.

Can I return to work or do normal activities the same day after my procedure?

One of the main benefits of the Wand as opposed to traditional anesthetic shots is that it leaves you with no collateral numbness. That means it only numbs the tooth or teeth we’re working on, rather than numbing large sections of your mouth. This limits any impact on how you look or your ability to talk, eat, or drink and generally allows you to return to your daily life immediately after your appointment.
