If you know you need to see a dentist but are avoiding scheduling an appointment due to dental anxiety, we invite you to visit Denver Restorative Dentistry. Our team of dental professionals is certified to provide sedation dentistry in Broomfield, Colorado, so that you can experience relaxation and comfort at your next appointment.
Sedation dentistry offers a variety of choices, which our prosthodontists will present to you, and you can choose based on your needs and preferences. These choices include:
- Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, which is a combination of a sedative and oxygen. You will inhale the gas during your treatment to help you feel relaxed and even euphoric during treatment. As a mild form of sedation, the effects of nitrous oxide will wear off soon after the flow of gas stops.
- Oral Sedation is another excellent choice. Our dental team can provide oral medication before your treatment so that you will feel calm and relaxed when you enter the exam room in our office.
- IV sedation, sometimes referred to as sleep dentistry, allows you to receive medication intravenously (or through the veins), which means you will feel the effects more quickly. If you are interested in IV sedation, we will arrange for a dental specialist or nurse anesthetist to come to our office on the day of your scheduled treatment. IV sedation allows the level of sedation to be controlled, so that you can remain at your preferred comfort level during treatment.
Call us today to learn if sedation dentistry is the right option for you and set up your appointment with our experienced prosthodontists, Dr. Goggins and Dr. Aguirre.
