Came across this post while tidying up some broken links:

"I have had the WAND used on me before at a dentist's practice in London and it was really wonderful, I barely felt anything at all, they inject the anaesthetic in extremely slowly, so you don't feel a thing as it goes in. It takes a lot longer than the dentist manually doing it though, but it's great for needle phobics as it is really amazing how little you feel. I'd say that most of the discomfort of injections comes from when they pump the anaesthetic into your gums - doing it too fast can be really uncomfortable.

Wayne Williams used to be my dentist in London, he's since moved to a new practice in Berkshire, and they use the WAND. He's a great dentist, very qualified and knows what he is talking about."
