Sedation Dental Care Lakewood Colorado

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a specific way of reducing anxieties for patients who are faced with upcoming dental care.

Sedation methods offered

Dr. Scott Stewart offers the following methods of sedation in his practice:

  • Nitrous oxide
  • Oral conscious sedation
  • AlphaStim™

Nitrous Oxide

The most common form of sedation is nitrous oxide. This is a special odorless gas that is commonly referred to as “laughing gas.” It makes patients feel extremely relaxed within minutes of administration. Patients are given oxygen following their treatment so they can transport themselves home.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Another option for more anxious patients is that of oral conscious sedation. This is sedation through the use of a special medication that is taken orally prior to the appointment. Patients must make transportation arrangements if they choose this method of sedation, both prior to their appointment and afterwards.

AlphaStim™ Sedation

Another option for patients who need to drive home is that of AlphaStim™ sedation. This is a special type of electronic sensory modification that is an alternative to the above solutions and a drug-free option.
