Dr. Patrick McShane understands some patients have a fear of needles, so his practice uses innovative dental technology, such as an anesthesia wand, to relieve dental anxiety.
CORNELIA, GA, December 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Fear of needles-it's real. Most people don't have a full-blown needle phobia, but they still get anxious when thinking about dental appointments. Without proper treatment, people are putting their oral health at risk. Even though shots are meant to treat or numb an area, people still consider them to be "painful." Dr. Patrick McShane, sedation and family dentist in Cornelia, doesn't want his patients to avoid treatment because they don't want to get a shot of anesthesia. For pain-free sedation, Dr. McShane can use an anesthesia wand to numb an area in the mouth.
"Patients love the idea of a wand, rather than a needle. A dental syringe is one of the biggest sources of a patient's anxiety. It's not surprising, which is why so many people avoid treatment. I use equipment that helps patients remain calm and comfortable," said Dr. McShane, dentist in Cornelia, GA.
An anesthesia wand takes the pressure off of the patient, so he or she can come into the dental office without any worries. The pen-like device is easy to hold for precise application of anesthesia. Plus, the appearance of the anesthesia wand differs from a traditional dental syringe-there is a tiny needle attached to the wand that is barely visible. Thus, patients don't notice the tiny needle, so their anxiety starts to melt away.
How does the anesthesia wand work? The wand is connected to a computer that delivers a small dose of anesthesia; therefore, the area is numb by the time the needle enters the soft tissue of the skin. Dr. McShane begins to deliver the proper amount of anesthesia needed for the treatment. And, patients don't' need to worry about anesthesia wearing off during treatment. The anesthesia wand supplies a consistent, safe amount of anesthesia via the computer's microprocessor. How does it know how much to supply? The computer indicates tissue density, so the wand registers the correct pressure and amount of anesthesia. While Dr. McShane focuses on treatment, the anesthesia wand adjusts the injection pressure. It's simple and pain-free! What is better than knowing that?
