As your favorite dentists in Cheyenne, we want nothing more than for you to feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable from the moment you walk in our doors until your visit is complete. Unfortunately, many people view going to the dentist, even for routine cleanings and checkups, with trepidation and anxiety. We get it. It often seems to many that not much fun happens at the dentist’s office.
Because we do care about patient comfort and care, we offer sedation dentistry to any of our patients whose fear prevents them from visiting the dentist as much as they should. Offering both oral sedation and nitrous oxide, we strive to ensure your comfort and peace of mind, allowing you to completely relaxed during your procedure. The sedation options we offer have been proven to be both completely safe and highly effective.
Studies show that approximately 50 percent of our population procrastinates going to the dentist because of fear and anxiety. Oral medications, taken just before the appointment, decrease inhibitions enough to allow you to relax enough to get through your visit without stress.
It is important to note that these types of sedation do not kill pain and are not considered to be narcotics in any way. Find out more about our approach to sedation dentistry by contacting our patient care team today.
As one of the safest and most easily administered sedation techniques, nitrous oxide is inhaled by the patient immediately before the procedure begins. Simply breathing the gas in allows the patient to relax into a twilight-type sleep, allowing them and the doctor to enjoy an easy, stress-free visit.
