Do You Have Dental Anxiety?

Dental Anxiety

Whether you have had a previous negative experience at the dentist or have generalized dental fear, Marr Family Dentistry have solutions for you. Drs. Kami and Kevin Marr pride themselves on providing high-quality dental care to patients in their Greeley, CO office. They aim to make patients feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible during treatment, which is why they offer sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry helps calm patients before and during essential dental treatments. This option makes dental visits pain-free and pleasant for those with dental fear or anxiety. But what are the other benefits of sedation dentistry, and what sedation options do patients have?

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Using sedation methods to complete dental procedures offers multiple benefits to patients and dentists alike. Sedation dentistry:

  • Can provide pain-free dental care
  • Can provide anxiety-relief
  • Reduces the gag reflex
  • Allows dentists to work faster
  • Anterograde amnesia (the patient doesn’t remember the surgery)

If you suffer from dental fear or anxiety, call Marr Family Dentistry at (970) 514-7010.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

Drs. Marr offer multiple methods of sedation to help patients get the treatment they need. Before treatment, Drs. Kami and Kevin Marr will discuss your options with you so you can collaborate on a decision that will work best for you.

Oral Conscious Sedation

This method consists of a pill which should be taken one hour before your appointment. This ensures that you are relaxed during the time of the procedure. You will need someone to drive you to and from the office if oral conscious sedation is used.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, is an odorless gas that is inserted through a cannula, or tube placed beneath the nose. The gas takes effect immediately and typically wears off following the procedure.
