Sedation Dentistry in Thornton

laughing gas sedationConscious sedation techniques help you conquer your fear of dentistry and dental procedures. The good news is, Thornton Dental offers conscious sedation for patients who want to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout their treatment.

There are several types of conscious sedation that let you relax or even sleep during treatment. Thornton Dental provides a pain-free and pleasant dental experience using advanced conscious sedation methods.

What is Conscious Sedation?

Conscious sedation, as the name implies, doesn’t put you to sleep. You stay fully conscious while the dentist performs the procedure. A measured mixture of nitrous oxide, also referred to as laughing gas, and oxygen will make you feel a bit lightheaded and in a relaxed state while you undergo the treatment. The medication mixture provides a calming effect only and doesn’t prevent you from communicating with your dentist.
