It is our goal to have each generation of children grow up without fear of dentistry. Parents have told us they are very pleased that their children enjoy their visits to our office. We can help with an active or scared child to make them feel comfortable and relaxed.

Sedation Dentistry

Dental Sedation Treatment Dentists Las Cruces NM

Our Full Range of Sedation Options

We understand that for some patients, dental treatments create anxiety. Shots and drills can create apprehension, and we are especially sensitive to these patients' needs. We can relieve your fears and make dental work easy for you with conscious sedation.

Comfortable Dental Treatment Las Cruces NMWe are one of the few practices in the state with the qualifications to administer IV and oral sedation. Dr. Burris has been certified by the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, so you know you're in good hands.

IV sedation provides the highest level of sedation and takes effect in the shortest amount of time. We maintain more control with an IV than with oral sedation. The medication is directly administered through the bloodstream for a more reliable and predictable level of sedation. You won't remember the procedure, and it will seem like it took just minutes. This type of sedation is used for longer appointments with extensive dental work and also for those with the greatest fear of dental work.

We also offer oral conscious sedation. By taking one pill an hour before your scheduled appointment, you will gradually feel very relaxed. You are not completely out, so you can respond to any questions asked by the doctor. But you are unaware of the procedure as you calmly sit in the dental chair. After the work is completed, someone drives you home.

For lighter needs, we provide nitrous oxide, commonly called laughing gas. All three types of sedation are safe and effective to make your dental work easy, comfortable, and worry free.

Implant Dentistry

Implant Dentistry Las Cruces NM

"Growing" New Teeth

Missing teeth can cause various other problems with your oral well-being. They do not just alter the appearance of your smile. They provide the ability to chew foods properly to get the most nutrients out of your food. Dental implants are the solution to replace one or many missing teeth. They come up through the gums and give the appearance of natural teeth, unlike bridges or dentures that sit on top of the gums. Those without any teeth can benefit from implants, as the problems of slippage and tilting are gone, and no longer do dentures need to be taken out at night. We handle the entire process from implant to crown placement, so you will likely not be inconvenienced in being referred to another office.

Some patients require special preparation, called sinus or ridge augmentation, before they are able to receive implants. In most cases, we can also provide this procedure directly, saving you time and the complications of dealing with another specialist.
