Are you afraid to visit the dentist? Does the thought of drilling and needles make you anxious? At Joseph Rigg, DDS, we understand that many of our patients have a hard time getting the dental care they need because they are too nervous to make an appointment. As part of our commitment to help you overcome your fear and provide excellent dentistry in a comfortable, relaxing environment, we use high-quality anesthesia in Aberdeen, South Dakota.


Each member of our dental team, led by our practiced dentist Dr. Joe Rigg, has the training and experience to provide anesthesia to our patients. There are many forms and types of anesthesia available. The most common form of anesthesia we use is local anesthesia, delivered by a small needle directly to the area. Local anesthesia is used to numb your smile and keep you out of pain throughout the entire treatment process.


While applying local anesthesia is necessary to ensure you have a pain-free experience, we also utilize sedation dentistry to help you feel calm and relaxed. We care about how you feel when you visit us, and we will take the time to listen to you and your concerns. The use of anesthesia and sedation will be determined by our team only after discussing your individual needs. For more information about how we can help you overcome your fears and receive the care you need, please contact our dental office today.
