Sedation Dentistry in Greeley, CO
A fear of the dentist is not always something you can easily explain. We are here to tell you that you are not alone.
Millions of Americans suffer from stress at the dentist because of a negative experience in the past or because of a fear in general. Some patients cannot explain why they experience dental anxiety, but would rather be just about anywhere else than in the dental chair.

Dr. Dhoon offers a solution that allows you get the dentistry you need to protect your smile and your health. After all, delicious food and a worry-free smile are something we take for granted every day until it's too late.
How Sedation Dentistry Works
Sedation dentistry is safe for most patients. We will perform a full medical history to make sure it will work for you. Your health is always our top priority.
At Greeley Dental Care, we offer oral sedation dentistry to help patients relax or to make lengthy appointments a breeze. Oral sedation dentistry requires a prescription that you will take prior to treatment. We will monitor your vitals using a pulse oximeter and one of our skilled team members will be by your side during your entire appointment, attending to your needs.
During your treatment, you will remain relaxed. Many patients doze off completely. Your appointment will fly by and you will have little to no memory of your treatment, which is one of our patients’ favorite features!
Sedation dentistry will keep you tired for several hours, so someone needs to take you home from your appointment. You should spend the rest of your day relaxing and avoid making any big decisions. By the next morning, you should feel like yourself again.
When Sedation Dentistry Works Best
In addition to eliminating the stress from your dental appointment, oral sedation dentistry is great for patients who:
- Suffer from a strong gag reflex
- Have difficulty getting numb
- Have complex or lengthy treatment plans
- Want to relax for their entire appointment
- Have conditions that make it difficult to sit still
Being able to get the dental care you need to stay healthy can dramatically impact the health and appearance of your smile while improving your quality of life. At our Greeley dental office, we want to make it easy for you to have quality dentistry in a caring, compassionate, and personalized way. Sometimes that means taking measures to reduce your anxiety with sedation dentistry.
