If you have been avoiding dental treatment, or you are living with tooth pain due to dental anxiety, we can help! When dental work is required, the team at Paloma Dental understands how important it is to reduce both pain and anxiety for our patients. We are committed to your comfort, and therefore, we offer the following options:
Local anesthesia is administered through injection at the site of treatment to block the nerves that transmit pain. This type of anesthesia is used to give you a virtually painless treatment. A topical anesthetic may be applied before the injection to prevent pain from the needle. While local anesthesia does not provide any relaxation properties, often, just the knowledge that pain will not be felt allows the patient to relax for a treatment.
For patients who need help relaxing, we offer laughing gas. Laughing gas is used to provide comfort and relaxation during treatments. The substance is odorless and colorless and can is administered by inhaling the gas through a special mask worn over the mouth. Using laughing gas is extremely safe and is very helpful in allowing a patient to relax.
If you would like to learn more about sedation options and how they can help you during treatment, give us a call today at (720) 440-7743 to set up your appointment.
