Is dental anxiety preventing you from enjoying a healthy and functional smile?
Fear of the dentist is a common reason for poor oral health and can be the result of a prior bad experience or generalized anxiety about medical procedures and environments. Louisville dentist Dr. Tracey Hughes has dedicated many hours to advanced training in the science and techniques behind oral sedation in order to help patients receive the dental care they need or desire with less stress and discomfort. She is a member of both the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, staying current with the latest information to ensure the best possible patient experience and your safety.`
Our dentist office is a “judgement free zone” where you are welcomed and respected; there is no need to feel embarrassed about the condition of your smile if you have been away from the dentist for some time. We are here to help you once again feel comfortable in the dentist chair as we help you achieve the smile you desire.
My childhood dental procedures were very traumatic and I didn’t want to go to the dentist. I can already tell that my dental health has dramatically improved!’’
Sedation Dentistry in Louisville CO
Sedation dentistry can be the perfect solution for dental anxiety, enabling you to maintain, restore or enhance your smile while relaxing comfortably. Boulder Valley Dental Center offers oral sedation, which is administered in pill form. Dr. Hughes will meet with you prior to your procedure to discuss your medical history to ensure a safe and effective dosing. In most cases, you will be given an at home dose to begin the process. This means that you will need an escort to and from your appointment.
Oral sedation allows you to feel completely relaxed and pain free, while also alert and responsive. You will have little to no memory of your procedure afterwards.
