Does going to the dentist stress you out? If so, you aren’t alone. More and more people in the Western Denver area are understanding the advantages of oral sedation dentistry, which lets patients visit the dentist while leaving their stress and anxiety at the door.
What is sedation dentistry? It is the use of anesthesia during treatment to help put patients into a relaxed state of mind. For many people, visiting the dentist isn’t a big deal, but for others, it can be a stressful experience, no matter how comfortable the office or skilled the dentist.
For people with a fear of dentists, regardless of whether you need a simple routine checkup or treatment for a more complex dental problem, Dr. Ted Johnson understands your needs and has the experience to comfortably restore your healthy smile in just one or two relaxing trips.
Good oral health is necessary for your overall health. Don’t let your fears keep you from having a healthy smile. Call today for an appointment.
How Does Oral Sedation Dentistry Work?
On the day of your appointment, we will give you dental sedation in the form of a pill. This will help you relax. Because it is conscious sedation, you are not asleep during your treatment. One of the added bonuses to getting dental sedation, including oral sedation, is you can feel so comfortable our sedation dentist can perform more than one procedure during one visit, which saves you time.
Our experienced clinical dental sedation team will make certain that you’re relaxed and completely comfortable. Our sedation dentist and his friendly, well-trained team monitors you very closely while you are sedated. Many patients feel no discomfort whatsoever during and after treatment. Oral sedation can help you feel little to no pain during your visit because you are so relaxed and comfortable. It is necessary that you get a ride home from your appointment as you may still feel a little tired or groggy and unable to operate a vehicle.
