The Wand: Painless Injections
It doesn’t look like a syringe, it doesn’t feel like a syringe, and it works BETTER than a syringe, resulting in a more pleasant dental experience!
The Wand is essentially a computer-controlled dental injection. The flow rate of the local anesthetic is controlled by a computer. This means that the injection is guaranteed to be slow and steady and therefore comfortable. Most people who have had a bad experience with injections think that needles sting because the skin is pierced, but this is usually not the case. Most often, the sting was caused because the anesthetic was fired in too quickly. Obviously, it is possible for the dentist to control the speed with a standard syringe, but the idea of the Wand is to take out the “human error”. This can be very reassuring for people with previous bad experiences.

Dentures generally refers to the replacement of an entire arch of teeth with a removable appliance with either plastic or porcelain teeth on it. It it also possible to have a denture with a few teeth remaining in your mouth, this is called a partial denture. Generally when a denture is placed for the first time, it takes a while to get used to it, since it is a foreign body in your mouth. Dr. Bunner and staff are very skilled in denture and partials and will be able to tell you if they are a good option for you. The process for making a denture is over a few weeks, but it is very meticulous and will be a great fit. Dr. Bunner prides himself in his attention to detail and making sure everything works out for the patient.
If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, you’re not alone. An estimated 80 percent of American adults currently have some form of the disease.
Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
Gum disease is a threat to your oral health. Research is also pointing to possible health effects of periodontal diseases that go well beyond your mouth Whether it is stopped, slowed or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.
What causes Periodontal Disease?
Our mouths are full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless “plaque” on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form bacteria-harboring “tartar” that brushing doesn’t clean. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.
We use oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide to relax you during your dental visit. Our comfortable home-like atmosphere will help keep you at ease while you are having services performed. Click here for more info about Sedation.
