“Sedation dentistry Denver residents trust!”
Sedation dentistry provides safe, comfortable dental treatment for patients with high anxiety for dental treatment. Sometimes called relaxation dentistry, sedation dentistry is a method of managing pain and anxiety during professional dental care through the use of medication.
You can benefit from sedation dentistry if you experience one or more of the following:
- High fear of dental care
- Complex dental problems
- Traumatic dental experiences
- Fear of needles and shots
- Trouble getting numb
- Sensitive teeth
- Sensitive gag reflex reaction
- Neck or back muscle tension
- Procedure requires long appointment
The three most common types of sedation dentistry are:
ORAL CONSCIOUS SEDATION
Through this type of sedation you will experience very deep relaxation while still being conscious. Your doctor will provide you with an oral medication that is easy to swallow, safe, and low cost. Most adults will receive Valium ((Diazepam). or Halcion (triazolam), though children are usually given a liquid medication like Versed (Medazolan). When the medication takes effect, you will still be able to speak and respond to external requests.
Inhalation sedation uses Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen (laughing gas) to help your body achieve a relaxed state. This is the most popular form of sedation used in dentistry today.
Intravenous (I.V.) Sedation is administered in our office by a dentist-anesthesiologist who is constantly monitoring your vital signs and level of relaxation to assure your safety and comfort. Although you are sleepy and deeply relaxed you will remain awake enough at all times to communicate any concerns to our dental team.
