Dr. Abeyta offers advanced dental technology in New Mexico from conscious sedation to a painless anesthetic delivery system.
The Wand is a computerized anesthetic delivery system. The computer monitors how much anesthetic is delivered and administers it at a rate that is painless to the patient. The needle is much smaller than the conventional syringe and most patients don’t even realize that they are getting a shot.

This revolutionary system was designed to alleviate the pain and anxiety of injections.
The microprocessor built inside the Wand automatically ensures a steady flow rate regardless of the density of the tissue. The constant, steady flow is the key to a virtually painless injection. Most people don’t realize it’s not the needle but the numbing agent that causes the discomfort.
What really sets the Wand apart is that the dentist can perform different types of injections that weren’t possible with a traditional syringe, like numbing a single-tooth or being able to keep the lips and face from becoming numb.
The Wand’s effective anesthetic delivery brings a faster onset of anesthesia.
What is Conscious Sedation?
Conscious sedation is the use of medications to help a patient relax during a common dental procedure. Some dentist offices refer to it as sleep dentistry, though that’s not really what it is. The patient is awake during the procedure unless actually put under general anesthesia for something more invasive like a tooth extraction.
Conscious sedation will not replace a local anesthetic or numbing medication if the dentist does need to take care of a cavity or is working in your mouth. You don’t want to feel pain when getting that tooth taken care of any more than you want to feel the needle.
Conscious sedation is extremely safe when administered by qualified providers. Dr. Abeyta is highly trained and devoted to patient care and safety. Because patients can slip into a deep sleep, proper monitoring of conscious sedation is necessary. Healthcare providers monitor a patient heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, oxygen level and alertness throughout the procedure.
You will find that a dentist who has adopted technology such as the Wand and Conscious sedation will usually be a dentist who specializes in treating patients with high anxiety or fear. It also means they will have other technology to make any dental treatment far easier for patients whether they suffer a phobia of dentistry or not.
