Conscious Sedation

For most patients, any dental work more extensive than a regular cleaning is anticipated to be an uncomfortable experience. But for those who suffer from dental phobias, the prospect can be terrifying.

At Henry Rued, DDS we are carefully trained and fully equipped to be your Willits sedation dentist. Using sedation, or sleep dentistry, has many advantages. As well as allowing Dr. Rued to work around dental phobias, sedation also allows him to complete much more extensive procedures that would otherwise be too stressful for patients to undergo in a single visit. At our Willits, CA office, we often run into this situation with working parents who simply don’t have the time for multiple appointments. They would much rather get everything done at once while they gently doze.

By taking a small sedative in the form of a pill prior to your procedure, you will be able to rest and relax in the dental chair. Many patients are able to sleep soundly, and they awake feeling refreshed and remembering very little about the visit. This method has been used at our office thousands of times and allows patients to receive world-class dental care without any apprehension. For treatment by the leading sedation dentist in Willits, Ukiah, or Mendocino, contact Henry Rued, DDS for a consultation.

Minimally Invasive

At Henry Rued, DDS we use minimally invasive dentistry whenever possible. Minimally invasive dentistry is the practice of providing treatment that maintains and improves the oral health of a patient while avoiding unnecessary or complicated procedures. This is important because although many dentists have the best intentions, they can forget about the most important thing—the goals and needs of the patient.

Most patients correctly feel that the best solution is often the simplest, and Dr. Rued agrees. For example, if you are experiencing tooth decay he will remove the damaged material and work to save the natural tooth instead of extracting and replacing. Or, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, he can place and color just a single or very few veneers to blend naturally, avoiding a complete makeover.

When receiving dental treatment from Dr. Rued you can be assured that he will always keep the procedures as simple and minimally invasive as possible, because he knows that this is best for you. Being a strong proponent for this philosophy of dentistry is just one of the reasons why Dr. Rued is an excellent choice to provide all your dental needs in Willits, Ukiah, and Mendocino.
