The Wand® (Single-Tooth Anesthesia)

We strive to provide the most pain-free and comfortable treatment possible at Nguyen Dental Practice, which is why we use The Wand® (single-tooth anesthesia or STA) to administer local anesthetic. This incredible dental tool looks like a regular ballpoint pen and uses special technology to reduce and even eliminate the discomfort associated with dental injections. Injections using The Wand are:

  • More comfortable
  • More precise
  • Less visually threatening

The Wand is designed to deliver a computer-regulated flow of anesthetic to give you a more comfortable, positive experience in the dental office. The effect is immediate, and because the flow of anesthetic is regulated, it is more even and eliminates the stinging sensation often associated with injections. Best of all, The Wand features the ability to provide single-tooth anesthesia so that Dr. Howard Nguyen can numb just one tooth to complete your treatment, rather than numbing several teeth and all the surrounding tissues for hours.

With The Wand, you can feel completely comfortable and relaxed without the need for needles.
