Choose the Right Type of Dental Anesthesia for You or Your Loved One
To make every dental appointment comfortable and efficient, we offer three basic types of sedation dentistry in Hermon and Bangor, ME.
This odorless gas is breathed through a special mask, and produces a sense of calmness. It is especially good for cases where patients are fidgety and nervous.
It's possible to use a laser to numb a tooth before a procedure. Dr. Billings can decide when this needle-less option is best to use.
A local anesthetic is a numbing medication administered around the area to be treated. The effects typically last for a few hours, leaving you comfortable and pain-free throughout your entire procedure.
For certain procedures, we use needle-free Cetacaine®, a leading gel that is useful for rendering soft tissue completely numb. Cetacaine® is applied on and below the gum line, the effects of which last around 20 minutes.
