We realize that for some people, a trip to the dentist can be a very anxious event. At Poulos and Somers, your absolute comfort during dental treatment is our top priority. We strive to provide a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere with beautiful views of the front range and soothing music available in each treatment room. Many of our procedures can be done with local anesthetic alone. This means that the area of focus is completely numbed and the procedure can be completed painlessly. Sometimes an oral sedative can be prescribed to relax you during your visit.
These medications are very effective in reducing anxiety, causing drowsiness, and producing some level of amnesia. We also offer Intravenous (IV) sedation in our office- which generally results in a deeper sedation than the oral medications provide. With either oral or Intravenous sedation, you must have a driver present with you at the office to take you home after your visit. Ask us about your options for sedation dentistry at your next visit!
