Catonsville, MD (Vocus) October 5, 2009 –
Patient comfort is a primary concern for most dentists, but Catonsville dentist Dr. Michael Schwartz takes things a step further by integrating the Wand into his dental practice. The Wand is actually the pen-like hand piece that administers the anesthesia using CompuDent, a computerized local anesthesia delivery unit that manages the flow and volume of anesthesia being delivered, offering more accuracy for the area being numbed. The Wand, through which the regulated anesthesia flows, does not look or feel like a syringe. A drop of topical numbing agent first numbs the injection site, and then the needle creates a comfortable injection pathway.
Often times bad dental experiences are associated with injections. Patients think that needles sting because the skin is pierced, but most often the sting was caused because the anesthetic was delivered too quickly. The wand assures a slower, more comfortable delivery. Many patients don't even realize that they've received an injection. Dr. Schwartz strives to be one of the most innovative Catonsville dentists through ongoing education and investment in his practice.
For those with even greater anxiety about a visit to the dentist, Dr. Schwartz also offers oral sedation will allow you to relax and stay comfortable during dental treatment and even have many procedures performed in one visit. Patients opting for oral sedation may remember very little about the actual procedure.
