Nitrous Oxide Denver, CO

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a very safe form of sedation. It is inhaled and the effects start within a few seconds. It can be adjusted quickly if a patient is too light or too deep. Also, after a few minutes without the gas, it is safe to drive home. It has very little side effects and hardly any effects on the kidneys, liver, brain, and more.

Nitrous oxide makes many people feel happy and warm. It causes a lot of people to laugh so it is often called laughing gas. It is great for sedation when a person is nervous at the dentist. It is also a great pain relief.

Not many dentists use nitrous oxide analgesia anymore. We would be glad to use it if you are extremely nervous or you need some pain relief during your procedure. Our goal is to keep you as relaxed as possible, no matter what procedure that we are performing.

IV Sedation Denver, CO

IV Sedation

We offer IV sedation that is customized for each patient. After discussing your fears, we will be able to find a treatment plan that is just right for your needs. We offer IV sedation as a safe and effective way to give our patients the treatment they need without inducing anxiety.

When you request sedation dentistry, we will give you a pill about an hour before your procedure. This is used to help you relax, so you will need someone to drive you to your appointment. As soon as you arrive at our office, one of our staff members will take you to a private room for treatment.

Your dentist will place an IV catheter to give you the medication that will put you in a deeper state of relaxation. We will then start your treatment. Once you are finished, you will have a smile that you can be proud of and no memory of the procedure. We can often perform several procedures at once when you are relaxed with IV sedation.

Oral sedation

Oral sedation is a highly effective technique employed in dental practices to help patients feel calm and relaxed during various dental procedures. It involves the administration of medication in the form of pills or liquid that are taken orally prior to the dental appointment. The sedatives used in oral sedation induce a state of deep relaxation, reducing anxiety and minimizing discomfort during dental treatments. This approach is particularly beneficial for patients with dental phobia, those undergoing complex procedures, or individuals with a low pain threshold. Oral sedation is considered safe and convenient, as it does not require needles or intravenous access. Moreover, it allows patients to remain conscious and responsive throughout the treatment while ensuring a comfortable and stress-free dental experience. Dental practices that offer oral sedation prioritize patient comfort and strive to create a calm and relaxing environment to ensure optimal oral health care.
