Sedation Dentistry

Castle Pines Dental Group provides sedation options for patients, such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Do You Hate Going to the Dentist?

scared woman at the dentistAt Castle Pines Dental Group, we understand that feelings of anxiety can be hard to control and can make dental visits downright nightmarish. We want all of our patients to be relaxed and comfortable while they’re in our office.

We are dismayed when patients avoid their regular dental cleanings due to anxieties. Unfortunately, these patients often end up needing more serious dental work that could have been avoided with a routine cleaning.

Relax With Sedation Options

Our patients have a choice between three sedation options:

  1. Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas): Since the effects wear off soon after your procedure, nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is a low-stakes option. Patients are able to drive themselves home after being treated with this colorless, non-irritating gas. Nitrous oxide is useful in a number of procedures, including regular cleanings or dental fillings.
  2. Oral Sedation: This is a mild type of sedation where you will take a pill orally which will help you to relax.
  3. IV Sedation: This sedation method will put you to sleep so you will be completely relaxed and comfortable during your procedure.

If you choose IV or oral sedation, you will need to ensure that you have a friend or family member with you to drive you home following your appointment.
