Put Your Mind At Ease With Conscious Sedation
For millions of people, the thought of going to the dentist can be scary. There are many reasons you might feel this way, but we want to assure you that it can get easier.
One of the best methods for managing those anxious feelings is dental sedation. Many people don’t want to fall asleep to get through a dental cleaning. It’s why Dr. Craig Ellsworth’s expertise in conscious dental sedation can be so valuable. By taking a pill prior to your care, you can relax, remain aware, and get the care you need to keep your mouth healthy.
Some people do doze off, but you can be woken up easily as well. The effects of conscious sedation can last for hours, so you will want to get someone else to drive you home if you choose this option.
Technology Can Make Dental Care Easier, Too
With technology, you can gain a better understanding of what is happening inside your mouth. We use:
- Intraoral Cameras – Your dental exam is an interactive experience with these cameras that let us show you if you may have a problem.
- Digital X-rays – These make the images available almost instantly, and they use a fraction of the radiation of film X-ray machines.
- 3D Imaging – These highly detailed images improve diagnosis and planning for complex procedures such as dental implant placement and extractions.
- Lasers – Our CO2 laser makes gum treatment pain-free and recovery faster and much more comfortable.
