Sedation Dentistry

Our team at Valley View Dental in Thornton is committed to helping our patients to feel comfortable and relaxed as much as possible.  We understand that many patients struggle with a form of dental anxiety at their appointment. That’s why we are proud to be able to offer options to help relieve any dental anxiety or discomfort when possible, such as sedation options. 

When it comes to our sedation dental options, there are a few different levels and types available. Dr. Alisha Evangeline Prince will discuss some of your options with you at your next appointment to figure out the best choice for your unique needs.

We offer Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide, otherwise commonly known as “laughing gas,” is one of the most common types of sedation offered at our practice. It is a mild gas that the patient will inhale through a comfortable nose mask. This gas will help put you at ease and will provide a relaxing, calming effect during your appointment. One of the main benefits of nitrous oxide is that this wears off very quickly, allowing you to return to your everyday activities without any grogginess. 

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

At Valley View Dental, your safety is always our top priority. Sedation and other forms of anesthesia are considered safe for use and have been used for several years in the dental field. You can feel confident knowing that our team is highly trained and experienced in administering certain levels of sedation–always keeping your safety and comfort in mind. For your safety and health, we ask that you disclose any current medications or medical issues to us prior to your procedure.


Our team is always helping our patients to feel comfortable and confident from the moment they walk into our office, to the moment they leave. We are happy to help you learn more about your sedation options, for your unique dental needs–please contact our team at 303-254-4484 if you have any additional questions or concerns!
