Science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke once penned “Any advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
In other words, if something is so ahead of its time in design and technology, then for all intents and purposes, it might as well be magic because who among us is smart enough to tell the difference?
This quote always pops into my head whenever a patient discovers the pain-free properties of my practice’s highly advanced, no-pain dental wand.
A Pain-Free Solution To Needles
The fear of needles is known as trypanophobia (go ahead, say that five times fast; I’ll wait), and for sufferers it is a debilitating anxiety condition that make it extremely difficult – if not downright impossible – to be relaxed enough to receive proper medical care of any kind.
Throughout most of human history, needles of some form or another have been the best way that doctors have discovered to deliver crucial medical compounds and other solutions into the bloodstream.
Unfortunately, doctors never stopped to ask the rest of us if we were comfortable with that, and just went along their merry little way. Such is the nature of progress, I guess.
At any rate, you don’t have to be a bonafide trypanophobe to have a healthy fear of needles and other shots. Just because you haven’t been clinically diagnosed with a fear of needles doesn’t mean that the thought of them has prevented you from seeking treatment of one kind or another.
Nowhere is this commonplace fear of needles more prevalent than dentistry, in my opinion. I assume it has a lot to do with the fact that, in dentistry, the needles in question are being stuck in the most sensitive of places on the human body: your mouth – in particular your soft, defenseless gums.
But none of those concerns should matter to you anymore, because with a dental wand, I can deliver those medications directly where you need them without one moment of discomfort!
What Is A Dental Wand?
It’s a pretty unassuming device. When you come to my Los Angeles office and get a glimpse of it for yourself, you may initially be unimpressed. After all, it just looks like a fancy ball-point pen attached to a small digital machine.
However, once the dental wand starts working, you’ll start to redefine your understanding of general dentistry from the inside out.
It works by using a special computer which tells the wand – which is basically a high-tech needle – to apply a very small amount of local anesthetic to the area selected for a procedure. This effectively anesthetizes the targeted tissue before the actual shot itself.
Once the preliminary numbing is complete, the dental wand gets down to the real work. The computer base attached to the wand knows precisely how much anesthetic to inject into the area to minimize or outright eliminate discomfort.
This is due to the fact that the real pain of a needle injection isn’t so much from the needle itself, but rather from the quick speed of the injection. My dental wand slowly but surely controls the flow of the anesthetic to ensure that the speed never reaches the point of noticeable pain.
It’s a complicated series of calculation made by the computer, but for you the patient, it is a magical tool which can allow you to receive that crucial dental procedure without having to deal with unnecessary pain.
I could go on and on about all of the stories I have about patients who were deathly afraid of getting treatment due to a fear of pain and of needles, yet once they discovered firsthand how a dental wand bypasses those fears entirely, they become full of confidence and learn to let nothing get in the way between them and the treatment that they deserve!
