Sedation Dentistry

Copper Mountain Dental provides sedation dentistry to help you feel comfortable in our office and receive the treatments you need without difficulty. Our caring dentist and team are dedicated to helping you feel at ease in our office, and we provide several forms of sedation to help you relieve your dental anxiety and fear so that you can receive your treatments safely and easily. When you visit our office for your consultation, we will discuss your sedation options, dental needs and medical history to determine which type of sedation dentistry is most appropriate for you.

Dr. Toby Richards may recommend sedation dentistry for individuals who suffer from dental anxiety or fear, have a severe gag reflex, who require extensive dental work in a single appointment or who cannot otherwise receive treatment safely.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that works through inhalation. Our dentist will place a mask over your face, and after a few minutes, you should feel relaxed and at ease. Many patients report experiencing a “floating” or “euphoric” sensation while receiving nitrous oxide. The effects of your sedation treatment will wear off shortly after the mask is removed and you stop inhaling the gas, and you will be able to safely and legally drive yourself home.

We invite you to call us at 406-494-2525 to learn more about the benefits of sedation dentistry in Butte, Montana, and to schedule your consultation with our experienced dentist. We are here to help you receive the care you need!
