If the thought of visiting your dentist’s office fills you with dread, don’t feel embarrassed. Many adults feel the same way, and with so many unfamiliar tools, painful-sounding procedures, and the threat of future problems surrounding you as you sit in that big chair, it’s not hard to understand why. Thankfully, Dr. Caputo and his team are committed to making your visit with them as safe and fear-free as possible. By providing the Wand, as well as several other comfort options, you can finally rest easy during your procedure, knowing you’re in good hands.
The Wand: An Enchanted Experience
Injections can be frightening and irritating, even for the bravest of us. Anesthesia is often painful if it’s injected too fast, and sometimes, its use results in too much tissue going numb, which can leave you drooling even after the appointment has ended. No more, though – Dr. Caputo is thrilled to now provide the Wand for his patients’ use.
The Wand is a pen-like hand piece that administers anesthesia to you. The true difference, though, is in the delivery unit connected to it, CompuDent, which manages the speed and amount of anesthesia being injected. Even better, the Wand itself doesn’t look or feel like a syringe. A drop of numbing agent first numbs the site for the injection, and then the needle creates an injection path that feels comfortable for you. You’ll barely even notice it at all! With the Wand, you won’t have to worry about pain, and after the procedure, you’ll be able to return straight to your life without a hitch.
Several Services, One Dedicated Team
In addition to the revolutionary technology of the Wand, we also provide other options for making your visit with us more soothing, such as:
- Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)
- TVs in the treatment rooms
- Stereo headphones
- CD Players
- A fun kid’s rom with video games and VCR
