Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) “The Wand”
One of the top reasons that people avoid going to the dentist is fear of shots. We get it- no one likes to have a shot, and it can be a source of great anxiety! Thankfully, modern technology has allowed us to eliminate painful injections.
Dr. Gentry uses a device called “The Wand” or Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) instead of traditional methods to numb a tooth. The Wand is a computer-controlled anesthesia machine that is more comfortable and less intimidating than a standard shot. Most of our patients don’t even know they have been given an injection!
Our goal is to provide the most gentle, comfortable dental treatment we can, and The Wand is another tool we use to achieve that. Don’t let anxiety keep you from seeing the dentist regularly- you can trust that we will do everything possible to give you a great experience!
