painless injectionsWe know that some patients get more nervous than others at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. That’s where the Wand comes in, a small lightweight handpiece that resembles a pen. The computer controlled system allows for an even-flow delivery of anesthetic in a very comfortable, non-threatening manner. It eliminates the "bee sting" effect - the painful consequence from a surge of fluid into a confined tissue area. Even more, certain injections made possible with the Wand minimize the unnecessary numbness of the tongue, cheek, and face.

The comfort of our patients is important to us, so we are proud to offer this latest technology in our office. Ask Dr. Ostrer about the Wand at your next visit. It’s the comfortable alternative!
