The wand is a computerised local anaesthesia delivery device which is used to numb teeth. The traditional dental syringe has changed very little since its introduction in 1853. In the era of modern dentistry, it would seem fitting to use computers to deliver painless dental anaesthesia. The wand does this by using a computer to control the flow rate of the anaesthetic into the gum. The common assumption is that the needle causes pain when getting a tooth numbed up however the majority of pain is generated if the anaesthetic is injected too quickly. The Wand ensures that anaesthesia is delivered so slowly it is below the pain threshold.
