Nitrous Oxide: We use Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) very routinely in our office for restorative and surgical care. Nitrous oxide is exceptionally safe and effective for mild anxiety. It also suppresses the gag reflex and is helpful for pain control.
Conscious Sedation: For patients with more extensive dental needs or greater anxiety, we may consider using conscious (moderate) sedation. Dr. Callahan has received extensive and ongoing training in sedation therapies, and is certified by the state of Colorado as a sedation provider.General Anesthesia: If it is determined that a patient is better served by undergoing treatment under general anesthesia, we are able to provide this service in our office, in a surgery center, or in a hospital. General anesthesia is always administered by licensed anesthesiologists.
