Are you afraid of the dentist’s chair? Do you hate it because of the pain, discomfort, and unpleasant sounds and smells that inevitably accompany it? Does that keep you from going to the dentist on a regular basis? Maintaining your teeth and oral care is an important part of your overall health. If neglected, minor problems can become very serious and require hours of corrective dental procedures. In addition, minor dental problems can actually cause very serious health problems for your heart.
If you’re one of those people that has avoided the dentist due to fear or anxiety, we have the answer for you. Sedation dentistry removes that fear and anxiety while we work on your teeth. Sedation can be safely used for short dental procedures or for dental procedures that last several hours. While under sedation, you may choose to be asleep or you may choose to be semi-conscious. Either way, you are completely safe and can respond somewhat during your procedure, and still feel relaxed and comfortable during the entire process.
Sedation dentistry can also eliminate the need to set multiple appointments to complete the dental procedures you need. Often, multiple procedures can be completed in one visit, all while you feel relaxed and comfortable. Most importantly, you will be completely pain free, and will not see, hear or smell any of the unpleasant aspects of being at the dentist!
Any healthy adult can qualify for sedation dentistry. If you have had traumatic experiences in the past, if you have difficulty getting numb, if you have a strong gag reflex, or you are just simply afraid of the dentist, sedation dentistry is right for you.
Here at Summerbrook Dental’s Aurora, CO office, we take pride in providing a positive experience for each of our patients. Our own Dr. Jim Craig was even featured on TV, discussing the benefits and safety of sedation dentistry! Watch the video here.
To ensure a positive experience, we offer different types of sedation dentistry to meet your needs.
We offer IV sedation that is monitored throughout the procedure to ensure a safe, comfortable experience. For those of you that are also afraid of needles, we offer another safe form of sedation that can be administered by taking a pill prior to your appointment. Oftentimes, our patients don’t even remember their visit to the dentist!
Sedation dentistry removes the fear and anxiety out of your visit to the dentist. And sedation dentistry can be used for all of the dental procedures that Summerbrook Dental offers! So you have no need to fear that dentist’s chair any more. Contact us today to set up a free consultation!
