You know you need to do it, but you keep finding excuses and putting it off… You know what we’re talking about, and that’s seeing your Greenwood Village dentist. Maybe you’re overdue for a cleaning. Perhaps you have treatment lined up, and you’re unsure if you feel comfortable moving forward.
RELAX. Using safe, soothing sedation dentistry in Denver, we can reverse your anxiety and help you care less about any worries in the world.
How is Sedation Dentistry Used?
For decades, dentists have relied on sedation dentistry to help patients who simply cannot sit in the dental chair. It’s beneficial in many other ways, including:
- Overcoming unwanted fears or anxieties about dentistry
- Easier treatments for patients with a sensitive gag reflex or gums
- Comfortable, restful experiences for every treatment
- Fewer appointments and less time in the office
As much as we love seeing you and your smile at our dental office in Greenwood Village, we do love that sedation dentistry courtesy of Dr. Macri can decrease your time in the dental chair. More extensive procedures that can sometimes take multiple visits to complete can be wrapped up in one office visit when you choose sedation dentistry.
What Types of Sedation Dentistry Do You Offer?
There are a few sedation dentistry options available for our family of patients at Macri Dental. Whether it’s time to get that annoying cavity taken care of finally or you’re ready for your cosmetic transformation, sedation can help the most frightful patients feel just fine.
At Macri Dental, we offer patients these safe sedation solutions:
– Nitrous Oxide – You might have heard this called “laughing gas” in the past. It’s known for easing patient anxiety in our Denver dental office for decades. You inhale the colorless, odorless gas, and you automatically feel lighter, and more euphoric. The effects wear off immediately when the gas stops being administered so you can go about your day without groggy side effects.
– Oral Sedation – Dr. Macri can write you a prescription for a mild sedative commonly called valium. You take it about an hour before your appointment so that by the time you’re ready to be in the dental chair, you’re feeling better both physically and mentally.
– IV Sedation – Sometimes, it’s necessary to be fully sedated for your procedure. In the event you’re healthy enough, and we deem it necessary, we can have a specialist come to our dental office in Greenwood Village and assist with IV sedation.
