Do you avoid dental visits because you don’t like sitting in the dental chair? Have you ever skipped an appointment because you were too overwhelmed by anxiety? 

Fortunately, many dentists today recognize that dental anxiety is a widespread problem that requires a solution. With sedation dentistry in Bloomfield, CO, many nervous patients today are enjoying stress-free dental appointments and healthier smiles.

Three Levels of Comfort with Sedation

Your dentist in Broomfield offers three different types of sedation and will help you choose which best matches your needs. 

Gentle Sedation with Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a popular sedation option that’s very mild and doesn’t have lingering after-effects like drowsiness. It gives you feelings of comfort and well-being so you can relax while your dental team efficiently performs your treatment. You will remain fully conscious throughout. 

Moderate Oral Conscious Sedation

Do you require deeper relaxation? With oral sedation, your sedation dentist prescribes a sedative for you to take by mouth an hour before your procedure. You’ll feel very calm, comfortable, and drowsy, but you will remain conscious. If you choose oral sedation, you will need someone to get you safely to and from your dentists’ office. 

Deep Relaxation with IV Sedation

If you’re a patient who prefers to “check out” during dental procedures, IV (intravenous) dental sedation is the solution for you. Calming medication is delivered directly into the bloodstream for fast and complete relief from dental anxiety. You will be semi-conscious and able to respond to your dental team, but most patients have little to no memory of what happened during the appointment.
