Afraid of the Dentist? Your Lafayette Sedation Dentist Can Help

Afraid of the Dentist? Your Lafayette Sedation Dentist Can Help If you live near Lafayette and experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, oral sedation is for you.

Conscious sedation dentistry is available in Lafayette at Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry. We have been providing sedation dentistry in Lafayette for several years with excellent outcomes. Whether it is called relaxation dentistry, oral conscious sedation or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and very popular for our nervous cosmetic and restorative dental clients in the Longmont area.

Though it may sound impossible, with oral conscious sedation, Boulder dentistry patients can actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

Sedation dentistry is great for alleviating anxiety for our Lafayette patients, and oral conscious sedation can be effective for treating or working with the following:

  • Teeth sensitivita;
  • Fear of needles;
  • A powerful gag reflex;
  • Difficulty controlling body movement;
  • Lengthy multi-procedure visits;
  • Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections.

If you need dental work more extensive than a filling; such as a root canal, tooth implant, crown replacement or wisdom tooth extraction; call Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry at 303-665-5335. When you come to our office at 1140 West S. Boulder Rd, Suite 201 in Lafayette, we can give you more information about sedation dentistry.

Sedation dentistry is only one of the services we offer at Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, where your smile is our top priority!
