Patient Testimonial    

I have severe anxiety of any dental procedure and the thought of needing a root canal was unbearable to me.  Sedation with Dr. Stubbs was the best experience ever.  It felt like the root canal was over right after we started.  I would absolutely recommend dental sedation with Dr. Stubbs to anyone who needs help to overcome their dental fear.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation      Lone Tree, CO 80124

SedationNitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas”, is a mild form of sedation that is delivered with a mixture of oxygen through a nose mask, as you breathe in and out normally.  When the procedure is over, the nitrous oxide gas is turned off, but oxygen will continue to flow through the mask for 3 to 5 minutes so that the gas is flushed from your lungs. Nitrous is safe to use during treatment and once the gas is turned off, it is completely out of the body.  There are no lingering effects.  You can drive yourself to and from your appointment.

Oral Sedation       Lone Tree, CO 80124

For patients who want to feel more relaxed without having an IV needle placed in their arm, sedative pills are taken orally.  Oral sedation is used to relieve light to severe fear and anxiety in patients and can help you to achieve a very relaxed state during the root canal procedure.  The most commonly used oral sedative is Triazolam.  Not only does Triazolam have sedative affects, but it also provides some amnesic affects.  Most patients remember little or nothing about their appointment.  Oral sedation is a popular alternative to IV sedation.

IV Sedation      Lone Tree, CO 80124

We work with a team of nurse anesthetists, with more than 25 years experience, to provide sedation with medications through an IV in your arm.  The nurse anesthetist continuously monitors your blood pressure, heart rate and blood oxygen levels allowing our endodontist to provide excellent root canal treatment.  IV sedation is the most predictable and efficient sedation method.
