Lasers Often Eliminate Need for Anesthetic

One of the reasons you may want to tour Briggs Family and Cosmetic Dentistry prior to your appointment is to witness the amazing attributes of laser procedures. In many cases, you will not even need anesthetic for work by Dr. Briggs, where a painful shot might be necessary with older dental techniques for the same procedure. Lasers work so selectively and under such control, for most patients, there is no sensation or pain. It’s part of the comfort commitment by the Briggs Family team.

Nitrous Oxide Available

Laughing gas! Nitrous oxide has been around since before the American Revolution. It was first used as a means of numbing pain and relaxing patients in the early 1800s. This safe and effective technique is used by Dr. Briggs when you have a lot of anxiety about your treatment, and want to be relaxed to enhance your comfort. In most cases, Briggs Family and Cosmetic Dentistry patients no longer need nitrous oxide because of all the modern, painless techniques used by the team. With nitrous oxide, after the procedure, there is almost no recovery period, and you can drive yourself…

Sedation Dentistry

Oral sedation dentistry is the use of gas, and orally administered medication to relax you in situations where significant relaxation or amnesia is what you want. Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation dentistry. In some cases, particularly if you have a severe fear of the dentist’s chair or just do not want to feel or remember the procedures, Dr. Briggs has the training, skill, experience, and technology to safely prescribe or administer advanced sedation techniques. Medication can be prescribed to relieve anxiety prior to your visit, aiding your comfort. The advanced sedation techniques, while safe, do require thought…

The Wand® Anesthesia

Forget the fear! Forget that huge, metal syringe — invented in 1920 — and make way for the “magic” Wand®. Dr. Briggs uses this high technology computer controlled anesthesia application so you feel no pain. You probably think it’s that long needle that hurts so much, it’s not – it’s the flow of the anesthetic into your gum tissue. The Wand® is “gee whiz” technology at its best. Depending on the type of tissue, anesthesia is administered in the perfect dose and temperature to do the job. In most cases, instead of multiple injections, you’ll only need one, maybe two…

Ultra Sonic Cleanings

Reducing the time needed for a cleaning, an ultra-sonic cleaning device is used today. Breaking up large pieces of tartar and calculus, the Cavitron® uses ultra-sonic—you can’t hear or feel—vibrations with water to blast your teeth clean. This type of cleaning deals with debris both on your teeth and below your gum line—the stuff flossing and your toothbrush cannot reach.
