During dental treatments and emergency dentistry, patients may require dental anaesthesia. Anaesthetic is necessary to ensure that the treatment can be performed without patients experiencing pain or discomfort.
Dental anaesthesia (also known as local anaesthetic) is injected into the area that requires the treatment. After the injection, the area will start to feel numb. Once the anaesthetic is working correctly the dentist can perform the treatment needed to rectify the issue. This type of anaesthetic means that you are awake throughout the procedure, but you will not feel any pain. The body feels no pain because the anaesthetic blocks the pain signals from the nerves to the central nervous system.
For some patients, the thought of having an injection can be very daunting and stressful. Therefore, we have a painless injection system that can provide anaesthesia in a comfortable and pain-free way. ‘The Wand’ is a pen like device that uses a streaming mechanism to administer the anaesthetic. This process eliminates the bee sting feeling you get with a traditional needle and syringe. What is more, the painless injection is completely free of charge which means any of our patients can have The Wand for no extra cost.
