Is anxiety standing between you and a healthy smile? If so, then you’re not alone. Every year, many patients put off important dental care because of anxiety. Sometimes this anxiety is rooted in previous experiences, while sometimes it has a different cause. Maybe you have difficulty sitting for long periods of time, or perhaps you don’t respond to local anesthetics. Whatever your situation, our team at Springs Dental Care is very sensitive to the impact that anxiety can have on patients. That’s why we offer conscious sedation options, which includes IV sedation. Through conscious sedation, Dr. Cea can help you relieve stress and enjoy good oral health and wellbeing again.
Just as every patient has different needs, patients who struggle with anxiety are all different as well. Some patients only have a very mild sense of anxiety that can easily be dispelled by a comfortable office atmosphere and nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas). Others, however, might require a stronger option.
Springs Dental Care is one of the few offices in the area that can offer IV sedation. This effective method, as well as oral sedation, is excellent for patients with moderate to severe anxiety. Both methods also work well for patients who need to have several procedures completed in one appointment, or those who are having a more advanced procedure completed.
If you have questions about whether sedation is right for you, talk to Dr. Cea. We will work to understand your needs and do whatever we can to help you feel comfortable while you’re in our office. We want every patient we see to have a bright, clean smile—something that anxiety stands in the way of. Our Colorado Springs dental team will help you find a way to finally experience soothing dental care.
We set the stage for comfortable care with our relaxing waiting room. When you step into our office, you’ll be greeted by low lighting, comfortable seating, a calming fountain, plus free WiFi and more. When you come see us, we want you to feel like you’re visiting a friend’s home.
