Top 10 Reasons you need Oral Sedation

Colorado Springs, CO - Oral Sedation

Why do You Need Sedation Dentistry in Colorado Springs? Here are the top ten reasons!


  1. When you are relaxed, the dentist is able to give you treatment that is more extensive and of a higher quality than it would be if you were not sedated.
  2. If you have a condition such as Cerebral Palsy or Parkinson’s disease that makes it difficult for you to control your movements, oral sedation is a great option because it will calm and relax your body. This will make it easier for both you and your dentist.
  3. Sedation dentistry can help you relax if you have a fear of needles.
  4. If your body doesn’t numb easily, sedation can help you.
  5. The dentist can accomplish complex treatments when you are comfortable and calm throughout the process.
  6. When you’re sedated, you may sleep through your entire treatment as some other patients do. If you do so, you‘ll feel less tired after the treatment.
  7. Oral sedation is simple! One hour before your appointment, you’ll take medication given to you by your dentist. (The medication is in pill form.)
  8. If you are sedated, you will have little to no memory of your treatment. (Oral sedation provides partial or total amnesia of the procedure.)
  9. Oral sedation is the perfect way for your dentist to relieve your apprehension or fears regarding your dental treatment.
  10. Used for many years, sedation dentistry in Colorado Springs is safe and effective.
