The Sedation Dentistry Process

We will not push any unnecessary treatments on you but will partner with you to create the most comfortable and desirable treatment plan possible. Once you are comfortable with the treatment plan, we can administer the most appropriate sedation method to you so you can feel calm and relaxed during the entire visit at our office in Utah County.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

LAUGHING GAS | Laughing gas is a great method for those with mild dental phobia to take the edge off during treatment .
ORAL SEDATION | Oral sedation does a fantastic job at calming and relaxing those with more intense dental anxiety. Oral sedation is completely safe and our doctors have administered oral sedation many times with a perfect success record.
INTRAVENOUS SEDATION | Intravenous sedation is for those who really would rather not even remember their trip to the dentist. Intravenous sedation is truly a pain free dentistry method and puts the patient in a fantastically relaxed state where they are almost asleep but can still respond to Dr.’s requests during treatment.

Having a healthy mouth is important for your overall health. Therefore, do not simply put it off because you have a fear of the dentist.
