Dental phobia can prevent you from receiving critical dental care. Over time, this can have a drastic impact on the health of your smile.
Fortunately, sedation dentistry can help you feel at ease. Dr. Christopher J. Gillette provides several types of sedation at his practice, serving patients in Denver and Arvada, CO.
How can sedation dentistry improve my dental experience?
Do you avoid dental visits because of fear or anxiety? You’re not alone. Research reports that up to 20% of Americans experience dental anxiety. The uncertainty of what to expect is what drives most patients’ fear.
There are several forms of anesthesia available, such as nitrous oxide (also known as “Laughing Gas”) and intravenous (IV) sedation (also known as “twilight sleep” or “conscious sedation”). Dr. Gillette can help you choose the method that is best for you by examining factors such as your level of anxiety and the type of the procedure to be performed. The anesthesia methods Dr. Gillette offers are explained below.
At your sedation dentistry consultation, Dr. Gillette will discuss the dental procedures you need, review your medical history, and help you determine the sedation method that’s right for you. Sedation dentistry lets Dr. Gillette perform multiple procedures in a single session to save you time, in many cases the entire mouth can be completed in a single visit.
Your smile plays an important role in your appearance, self-esteem, and whole-body health. Avoiding dental care jeopardizes oral and overall wellbeing. With sedation dentistry from Dr. Gillette, you can have the smile you deserve without anxiety.
