Anxious about dentist appointments? Afraid of the pain associated with some forms of dental work? You may be experiencing dental anxiety.
Dental anxiety can make you avoid dental care, which can result in serious health issues. Sedation dentistry can help you relax.
Dr. Steven Krendl of Colorado Dental Arts in Littleton, CO, offers various levels of sedation to help make treatment calm and painless.
When Sedation Dentistry Can Help
Anxiety about Dental Work
Fear of pain is normal, as is the worry that your dentist may find a serious oral health issue. Dr. Krendl can offer sedation to calm your mind.
Unpleasant Experiences in the Past
Some patients remember bad experiences with previous dentists. Dr. Krendl will do everything he can to make you comfortable, including administering deep sedation that will leave you with no memory of your procedure.
Problems Sitting Still
If you have a medical condition that makes sitting for long periods painful or controlling movements difficult, sedation dentistry can help calm your body and eliminate aches from sitting.
Fear of Needles
Even gentle anesthetic injections for routine dentistry procedures can cause patient anxiety. Dr. Krendl is a compassionate dentist who offers needle-free sedation options for relaxation.
Sensitive Gag Reflex
This reflex can occur when your dentist touches sensitive areas in your mouth, making exams and treatment very difficult for all involved. A sedative prescribed by Dr. Krendl can help curb this reaction.
Is a Sensitive Gag Reflex Common?
If you have a sensitive gag reflex, you are not alone. Many people have this condition, which can be caused by stress or physical touch.
Please tell Dr. Krendl if you have experienced a gag reflex during previous dental visits so he can form a sedation plan to make you more comfortable.

Our Patients Love Colorado Dental Arts
I have been coming to Colorado Dental Arts for five years now and have been very happy. The staff is very friendly and the same technician has cleaned my teeth every time and does a great job. I recently had cosmetic work done and am very happy with it.View on Google
Great experience! Thanks to the whole team at Colorado Dental Arts. I am not the biggest fan of going to the dentist, but Dr B, Stella and the whole team make for a great experience. The care is very personal and very professional. I would highly recommend checking out these folks when deciding on a place to call home to keep your teeth happy!View on Google
Can I Relax without Sedation?
Tell Dr. Krendl or his staff about your fears. Just talking about it could help you relax. And never feel embarrassed to ask for sedation if you begin to feel uncomfortable.
Listening to music through headphones or keeping an object in your hand like a stress ball can keep your mind off the sound of dental instruments or mild discomfort.
Many patients find that focusing on deep breathing in the dental chair can be very relaxing. Apps are available for guided meditations as well.
