What is sedation used for at Centre Family Dentistry?

We use sedation for various reasons. We consider it for multiple or invasive procedures, but we can also use it at your request. For example, if you have an easy gag reflex or suffer from dental phobia, you might ask for dental sedation.

We offer three types of sedation dentistry in Fort Collins, CO.

Dental Sedation Types

Nitrous oxide is the mildest form of dental sedation. Delivered through a nasal mask, the safe gas eases anxiety and offers tranquility. In addition, nitrous oxide has no lingering effects. So, you can return to work or go on with your day.

Oral sedation is more potent, but you’ll still be able to respond to your dentist during treatment.

IV sedation is the most potent form of dental sedation we offer.

With oral or IV sedation, you’ll need transportation and should rest for the remainder of the day.

Your dentist may choose to combine sedation options based on your needs. However, we do not administer any relaxants unless we’ve taken a thorough health history and your dentist believes that sedation is a safe and suitable option for you.
