Around 15% of adults in the United States avoid regular dental care because of anxiety.
Sedation can help calm dental anxiety, allowing you to get the oral treatment you need.
At West Lake Dental, our Loveland, CO, team provides mild to moderate sedation for a comfortable dentistry experience.
Who Can Benefit From Sedation Dentistry?
It's not uncommon to have a bit of anxiety about going to the dentist's office. Sedation can help you relax your mind, making it possible to combat fear of the dental chair and begin forming positive associations with the dentist's office.
For patients with ADHD, arthritis, Parkinson's disease, or other special needs, sitting comfortably still for a dental visit can be grueling. Sedation relaxes the body, allowing patients to enjoy a more comfortable experience at the dentist.
Sensitive Gag Reflex
Sensitive gag reflexes can slow down treatment and make the entire process uncomfortable for the patient. Sedation can calm this reflexive action if you easily gag when the back or roof of your mouth is touched.
Dental appointments can become tiring when undergoing longer treatments, such as placing a dental crown. Sedation can help make the time pass more quickly. Sedation dentistry can also help you undergo multiple treatments at once, thus reducing your number of visits to our office.

Heartfelt Reviews From Loveland, Fort Collins, and Surrounding Communities
What a wonderful dental practice! Dr. Andy and his staff are professional, considerate, and deliver top notch care with compassion. They thoroughly explain any treatments that are needed and answered all my questions and concerns. One of the very best dental offices I’ve been in!View on Google
I was very anxious about the whole thing of getting dentures but they made me feel very much at ease, told me all my options after doing a very thorough exam. They made sure all my questions were answered and didn't rush me out like so many do these days. But after my first appointment I feel a lot more at ease about getting dentures.View on Google
