It is estimated that nearly 50% of all Americans experience some anxiety when visiting the dentist. Moreover, 40 million Americans are, “dental-phobic”, meaning, they have such severe anxiety over dental office visits that they avoid dental care altogether. As a result, nearly 25% of all dental appointments are canceled because of this phobia.

When it comes to going to the dentist, Dr. Tomalty is very sensitive to the needs of patients who may be dental phobic. If you are someone who does not look forward to a dental appointment, Dr. Tomalty uses a combination of the STA Single Tooth Anesthesia System® unit, the CompuDent unit, CompuMed® instruments, and The Wand® handpiece to give patients such as you an anxiety-free and comfortable visit.

The WAND is a computer controlled local anesthetic injection system that helps conquer fear, pain and anxiety.

This technology helps reduce the pain and anxiety of injections!

The microprocessor inside The WAND automatically ensures a steady flow rate regardless of tissue density. Constant, slow flow is one key to virtually pain-free injections.

The computer provides a flow of anesthetic directly ahead of the needle. This creates a pathway of anesthesia so you hardly feel the needle at all. The source of discomfort for most injections, however, isn’t the needle, it’s the flow of the anesthetic into your tissue. The WAND delivers the anesthetic at an optimal flow rate for a comfortable injection.

The WAND allows injections that do not numb the lips, face and muscles of expression. Whether injections make you nervous or not, The WAND helps us provide a more effective anesthetic delivery and the onset of anesthesia is often faster. You’re more comfortable throughout the procedure, and we may be able to use techniques so you won’t experience the lingering numbness of your tongue, lips and face.

You want the best and most comfortable treatment when you go to the dentist. Dr. Tomalty understands this and he makes it a priority to ensure your dental visit is comfortable as well as efficient. What more could you ask from your dentist?
