Using the STA's wand handpiece gives dentists the ability to do injections that are impossible to do with a syringe. it's possible to numb the pallet, and multiple teeth without numbing the lip.

"It's the most important thing to our patients. As long as we can make it as comfortable as possible for them, they really appreciate and they do send in new patients and they are your patients for life," said Casagrande.
