The way we see it, no patient should dread their dental visits! If you suffer from dental fears, are in need of extensive treatment, or have trouble sitting through an office visit, dental sedation can help. We offer three types of dental sedation – nitrous oxide, oral sedation and IV sedation. If you are in need of dental sedation in Highlands Ranch, CO, our team can help you receive comfortable, first-class dental care.
One of the mildest forms of sedation is nitrous oxide. Safe for patients of all ages, nitrous oxide works by placing a mask over your nose to administer a specialized form of sedation, helping you relax throughout your visit. With nitrous oxide, you will be able to respond to your dentist when needed but your nerves will be calmed as your dentist cares for your smile. Once the mask is removed, the effects of sedation will begin to wear away allowing you to get back to your normal routine right away.
Administered in pill form prior to your appointment, oral sedation should begin to take effect by the time you sit in the dental chair. Oral sedation is made to last for several hours and helps you feel extremely relaxed during your dental visit. This can help your dentist provide you with a good amount of dental care during one office visit.
IV sedation is typically used during more extensive treatment. One of our trained and qualified doctors will place the IV and monitor you throughout your visit. The levels of sedation can be raised or lowered as needed, allowing you to have a productive, relaxing dental experience.
