Fort Collins Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry will allow you to protect your health and enhance your appearance at the dentist’s office without any stress or anxiety.

In addition, if you would like to undergo several procedures in just one visit to the dentist, we can make that possible with sedation dentistry. Laughing gas or IV anesthetic can give you the tolerance you need to complete several dental procedures without having to come back for countless appointments.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Many people put off having the dental care they need because they have a fear of the dentist or experience anxiety when it comes to having dental work done. With sedation dentistry it is often easier to get the care you need without the anxiety.

Dental Phobia

There are very real phobias that exist when it comes to dental work including fear of pain, fear of losing control, fear of loud noises and fear of dental equipment. Sedation dentistry can help to alleviate these fears and allow you to have a relaxing experience at the dentist.

Involuntary Gagging

For people who suffer from involuntary physical reactions to dental care including gagging, jaw clenching and other muscle tension. At The Fort Collins Dentist we have different types of dental sedation we can use to help mitigate some of the common physical reactions to dental care in order to provide the best possible treatments for you.

Types of Dental Sedation

Depending on the procedure you will be having and the level of discomfort that may be expected, The Fort Collins Dentist will recommend the type of dental sedation that will best meet your needs without causing any inconvenience for you.

Laughing Gas Sedation Dentistry

Laughing gas sedation is the best option for our patients who want to remain in a conscious, but relaxed state during their visit to the dentist. All you have to do is come into the office, then sit back and enjoy your break from the busyness of life.

We will place a breathing mask over your nose so that you can breathe in the laughing gas. You will be awake during your procedure, but the laughing gas will calm your mind and body so that you can feel great during your time with us.

If you think you need an extra strong sedation through your dental procedure, talk to Dr. Lesko about IV sedation. This type of sedation is administered through an intravenous line, and is so strong that it can allow you to sleep through the procedure. You can skip all of the details about your time in the chair, and wake up to a new and improved smile.
