Sedated patient

Sedation Dentistry

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?

Sedation can help a wide variety of problems you may face at the dentist. Patients choose sedation for everything from routine teeth cleaning to dental implant placement because it can help with:


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.

Long Procedures

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 Loveland dental office.

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.
