Our sedation dentist in Fort Collins, CO offers various sedation options to help patients feel anxious. We never want stress to keep you from getting the dentistry you need.

In our dental office, we offer three types of dental sedation. In addition, your dentist can offer one or more choices to give you the level of comfort you need.

Why Sedation Dentistry Works

Sedation dentistry works because it is customizable. The levels of or combinations of relaxants vary by patient, which means you’ll receive the best cocktail for your unique needs.

We also monitor you closely during treatment and take a thorough health history before administering specific medications.

Our goal is to provide you with a safe and thoroughly relaxing dental treatment, and our patients have been thrilled with our sedation dentistry in Fort Collins.  

Sedation Dentistry Options

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a tried and true relaxant that is safe for patients of all ages. The odorless gas is delivered through a nasal mask, and it produces a detached and carefree feeling that allows you to get treatment without stress. When we remove the mask, the effects go with it, so you are safe to drive yourself home.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a pill you take before treatment. You may not remember most of your appointment with this method, but you will still be minimally aware. Oral sedation means you’ll need a ride to and from our dental office.

IV Sedation

IV sedation puts you into a dreamlike state, allowing you to receive multiple treatments during one dental visit. This method of sedation also requires transportation home from our dental office.
