Dr. Jan Linhart, an acclaimed Manhattan cosmetic and restorative dentist, uses state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the best possible care for his patients. One of the most advanced pieces of equipment now employed in his offices is The Wand.

"The most painful part of dental work is often the injection of anesthetics," states Dr. Linhart. "That's why we use The Wand--it's virtually painless." The Wand is an anesthetic delivery system of the highest caliber. It includes a computerized injector that minimizes the opportunity for painful human error. Dr. Linhart explains, "If anesthetics are administered too quickly, it hurts. The Wand controls pressure and flow rate to ensure a comfortable injection." The dentist controls the machine with a foot pedal and applies the anesthetic with a tiny needle nestled in a pen-like applicator.

"It looks nothing like a syringe," continues Dr. Linhart. "The non-threatening appearance works to reassure patients. Additionally, it is lightweight and easy to handle, which makes application easier and safer."

One key feature of The Wand is that anesthesia is induced before the needle is inserted, and the flow of anesthetic precedes the needle throughout the entire process. Dr. Linhart states, "Because of this unique system, the patient can hardly feel the needle. That was one of the major factors in our deciding to use the equipment. Whether someone is getting a crown, a root canal or an implant, our use of The Wand makes the process as comfortable as possible. Patient comfort is very important to us."

The Wand is not the only pain-reducing product currently used in the offices of Dr. Linhart. "We also use the Waterlase MD." Made by Biolase Technologies, Inc., this high-tech drill uses a laser and water to effectively vaporize cavities and unwanted tissue. "The Waterlase MD can be used in place of a traditional drill and often removes the need for anesthesia entirely. This laser has many of the same strengths as The Wand: it is easy to control, precise, and it reduces pain and anxiety," says Dr. Linhart.

He concludes, "At our offices, a patient never has to fear the ominous sights and sounds of old-fashioned syringes and drills--it's a much more positive experience for all involved."
