Sedation Dentistry in Denver, CO

At Smile Studio Dental in Denver, CO, we understand that dental visits can sometimes be a source of anxiety or discomfort. To ensure you have a more comfortable experience, we offer various dental sedation options tailored to your needs. Our offerings include laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, and general anesthesia, as well as IV sedation for those who require a deeper level of relaxation.

  • Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, is administered through a mask over your nose, helping you feel relaxed yet responsive during your treatment.
  • For those who need a little more assistance to stay calm, oral conscious sedation involves taking a pill about an hour before your appointment, which will make you feel drowsy but still awake.
  • IV sedation provides a deeper sedative effect through a vein, allowing for a higher level of relaxation while maintaining safety and consciousness.

Don’t let fear or anxiety hold you back from receiving the dental care you need. Contact Smile Studio Dental today to discuss our sedation options and schedule your next visit. Ensuring your comfort and peace of mind is our highest priority.

  • How long does laughing gas last?

    The effects of laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, typically last for a short duration, usually ranging from 5 to 10 minutes after the gas is turned off. However, some residual effects may linger for a bit longer, depending on factors such as the dosage administered and individual metabolism.

    Laughing gas is designed to wear off quickly, allowing patients to return to normal activities without lingering sedative effects.

  • What is conscious sedation?

    Conscious oral sedation in dentistry helps you relax during procedures by simply taking a pill. This method significantly reduces anxiety, making your dental visit much more comfortable. It’s particularly helpful if you’re apprehensive about dental treatments, allowing you to have a stress-free experience while remaining awake and able to communicate with your dentist.

  • What does IV sedation feel like?

    • IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and drowsiness.
    • Patients typically remain conscious and able to respond to verbal commands during the procedure.
    • Many describe the sensation as a dream-like state or feeling as if they are “floating.”
    • Patients may feel detached from their surroundings or experience partial memory loss afterward.
    • The effects of IV sedation wear off gradually after the procedure.
    • Patients may feel groggy or sleepy for a period following the procedure.
