At the top of a Colorado "14er," the view is awe inspiring, but difficult to see from lower elevations. In a similar way, 58 Dental has a breadth of vision for dentistry that is seldom shared or found. We practice the medical model for dentistry, focusing on prevention, remineralization therapy, and minimally invasive dentistry. In addition, we provide pre and post-head and neck radiation support.

At 58 Dental, we spend generous amounts of time answering your questions, addressing concerns and learning about you and your oral health. Awareness of one's own health is the beginning of successful dental treatment, and 58 Dental is committed to that.


Pediatric Dentistry Specialists For Centennial CO Residents

Our goal is to help parents achieve and maintain excellent oral health for their children.

We will gently examine your child's teeth and gums. X-rays may be taken to reveal decay and check on the development of your child's permanent teeth (under the gums). We may clean your child's teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay. We will make sure your child is receiving adequate fluoride at home. Most important of all, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child's teeth.

What should I tell my child about their first trip to the dentist?

We are asked this question many times. We suggest you prepare your child the same way you would before their first haircut or trip to the shoe store. Remain very positive in your description of the visit and focus on the benefits and fun of going to the dentist, rather than any preconceived negatives. Your child's reaction to his first visit to the dentist may surprise you.

During your first visit, the dentist will:

  • Examine your child's mouth, teeth and gums.
  • Evaluate adverse habits, such as thumb sucking.
  • Check to see if your child needs supplemental fluoride.
  • Teach you about cleaning your child's teeth and gums.
  • Suggest a schedule for regular dental visits.

Stay At Ease with Our Sedation Dentistry

Don't let the fear of dentistry prevent you from getting the necessary care that you deserve! There are many different benefits to using sedation dentistry, but here are some of the major advantages:

  • Treatment is completed when you are in a more relaxed state.
  • You will have less difficulty sitting through a lengthy procedure.
  • Multiple treatments and full mouth restorations can occur at/during the same visit.
  • Less discomfort after treatment.
  • Ease of administration.
  • No need for needles or syringes.

Anti-Anxiety Pills

The most commonly prescribed dental-related drugs designed to treat anxiety, drugs such as Valium, Halcion, Xanax, or Ativan, belong to the "benzodiazepine" family. These drugs decrease anxiety by affecting "fear" receptors in the brain. While benzodiazepines typically act as sedatives and anti-anxiety drugs, some are highly targeted at areas within the brain which focus on sleep. Others act in a more specific way by targeting fear centers in the brain. In most cases, higher doses act as sedatives and induce sleep, while in lower doses they reduce anxiety without sedation.

Benzodiazepines are Central Nervous System (CNS) depressants, i.e., there can be a decline in blood pressure and breathing. It is also important to note that they should not be mixed with other CNS depressants, such as alcohol. It is important that you utilize the dose Dr. Griffith or your primary care physician recommends. Please note that you should not travel on your own after any of these drugs have been administered. An escort is required for this type of sedation, even if you traveled by bus or on foot! It's easy to become disorientated.
