Does the thought of seeing a dentist make you anxious, nervous, or even frightened? We want you to know that you’re not alone – a significant amount of adults struggle with this problem. That's why Loveland sedation dentist, Dr. Andy Maples and the rest of our team work hard to provide you with an environment that's as warm, friendly, and calm as possible. If that’s not enough, sedation dentistry options are available to take the edge off those negative feelings and help you truly relax. At West Lake Dental, patient satisfaction is our top priority!
Sometimes, nitrous oxide alone might not be enough to help you feel at ease. That's why for patients with moderate to severe anxiety, we usually recommend combining it with a form of conscious sedation. While, as the name implies, you don’t fall asleep during conscious sedation, virtually all patients enter such a deep state of relaxation that they experience an amnesic effect that allows them to forget most, if not all, of their procedure once it’s over. When undergoing conscious sedation, you will need a trusted friend or family member to bring you to your appointment and take you home, as well as keep an eye on you for the rest of the day. By the following morning, you should be back to normal.
Don't suffer with an aching smile just because of anxiety or fear. Instead, experience the quality care you need to feel comfortable here at West Lake Dental. Dr. Maples will do everything he can to ensure your complete satisfaction.
