Can I avoid the pain I usually suffer through when getting numbed?
The pain often experienced when receiving local anesthetic is caused by how quickly the numbing solution is inserted. The Wand uses a micro compressor so the speed is regulated; patients feel a bit of pressure, but no pain. Plus Dr. Maddahi can numb only the tooth or area that is getting worked on when he uses The Wand to administer local anesthetic.

How can I get pain-free dentistry?
Dr. Maddahi uses Drill-Free Dentistry! Air abrasion is comparable to sand blasting, and it removes only the decayed sections of tooth. For example, when most dentists spot a small spot of decay on a patient's tooth, they must drill away at an amount of healthy tooth to get to the decay. In that same scenario, Maddahi would use air abrasion dentistry. When he uses this tool, there is no whining, no burning smell, no vibration, and no anesthetic required.
