Sedation Dentistry in Denver Becoming Popular

November 25, 2010

Recent Press Release:

Dr. Guy Grabiak of Denver Dentistry of West Denver has seen recent spikes in the number of clients requesting and receiving sedation dentistry. Dental sedation is used to help patients establish a relaxed and calm state during procedures through the use of sedatives. This is helpful because the number of anxious patients in the United States is staggeringly high. According to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS Education), a professional dental organization dedicated to ensuring that patients receive safe, comfortable and anxiety-free dental care, 30 percent of the population avoids the dentist due to fear. This could mean that dental problems could escalate to a point where serious oral health issues like gum disease and tooth loss would be prevalent.

Dr. Grabiak of Denver Dentistry utilizes sedation dentistry in his Littleton office in three forms: IV Sedation, Oral Conscious Sedation and Nitrous Oxide Sedation. Sedation dentistry, often called sleep dentistry, is generally admitted when patients require assistance getting through necessary dental procedures. Dr. Grabiak explains the usefulness of sedation, “We recommend dental sedation to our patients who have fears of visiting the dentist as well as for patients who have concerns about pain.” These are some of the major concerns that keep patients away from the dentist even though they know they are avoiding health care that they require to fix embarrassing or health-related problems.

Avoiding the dentist due to anxiety or fear no longer has to hold patients back from getting the health care they need. For patients who wish to learn more about Dr. Grabiak and his gentle dental sedation techniques visit his site at or contact his office at 303-835-9948.
