The Wand (Virtually Painless Injection)

A local anaesthetic is necessary for some dental treatment such as fillings, root canals, crowns, implants and veneers. Without anaesthetic, the procedure would be quite uncomfortable, and Dr Olstein couldn’t provide you with the treatment you need to ensure your optimum oral health.

Dr Olstein understands that many people suffer from a crippling fear of needles. This fear often prevents people from seeking out the dental care and treatment that they so desperately need. Dr Olstein is always looking for ways to help people overcome their fears, and The Wand (virtually painless injection) is just one of the ways he can help achieve this.

What is The Wand (Virtually Painless Injection)?

The Wand Plus is a computer-controlled local anaesthetic delivery system. It is an alternative to the traditional needle and syringe and is a perfectly safe method of anaesthetic delivery. The Wand has been used extensively in the USA, Europe, South Africa and in Australia since 2003.

It is suitable for people of all ages and uses the same local anaesthetics as traditional needle and syringe methods. We deliver the local anaesthetic anywhere in the mouth for a more comfortable and predictable sedative.

It is much gentler on the tissues and pain-free in most cases.
