There is no need to put off dental procedures because of dental anxiety. At the dental practice of Holly B. Sletten, DMD in Parker, Colorado, we understand dental anxiety, and want you to know we are pleased to offer our patients sedation dentistry, to make your experience comfortable and pleasant. The purpose of sedation dentistry is to allow you to get the treatment you need while calming your anxiety and fears to minimize discomfort. We provide a safe environment for you while providing you with quality care.

At the practice of Dr. Holly B. Sletten in Parker, Colorado, we offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation to help you feel relaxed and comfortable during your treatment with us. Let us break down what this means for you.

–With nitrous oxide (you may be familiar with this as laughing gas) you will receive a sedative gas mixed with oxygen. All you need to do is sit back, calmly breathe in the gas as we work, and when the procedure is done the effects wear off and you are good to go.

–With oral sedation, you simple take a sedative the night before to calm you, and before the treatment procedure, which leaves you relaxed and comfortable at the time of your appointment.

–With IV sedation, we administer calming sedation medication through your veins. Sometimes known as twilight sleep, it is quick and allows us to adjust the sedation levels for you. While you will be relaxed enough to fall asleep during the procedure, and you will still be conscious.

We hope this helps you feel confident that you will be comfortable during your treatment time with us. If you need to schedule an appointment with our dedicated dentist, Dr. Holly Sletten, please call our dental team in Parker, Colorado at 720-851-1676 today!
