Dental Sedation Specialists


It’s not uncommon to dislike visiting the dentist. Many people feel some anxiety when they have to go to the dentist, even for routine cleanings. In fact, nearly 20% of Americans avoid going to the dentist regularly due to anxiety.

Dental anxiety can usually be overcome, but it becomes a real concern when it keeps people from receiving the appropriate treatment to treat and preserve their teeth. At Greater Endodontics, we recognize dental anxiety and do everything possible to ensure our patients a painless and stress-free dental visit. We’re specialists in saving teeth, and our dentists work closely with dental sedation specialists and anesthesiologists to offer a variety of sedation options for all procedures.

Greater Endodontics Sedation Options

At Greater Endodontics, we provide a variety of options for dental sedation. Depending on your circumstance, health and dental procedure, our dental sedation specialists will determine which option is best.

This Valium-type drug that may be prescribed prior to your appointment. This medication allows you to come to the office feeling more relaxed and comfortable. Before your procedure, you should have a trusted friend or family member accompany you to drive you to and from the procedure. They should also stay with you for 4 hours afterwards to monitor for any negative side effects.

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation commonly used in the dentistry world. Nitrous oxide is administered via a small mask that fits comfortably over the nose. Once your dosage is correct and you feel relaxed, we will begin your procedure. Once the procedure is over, the flow of nitrous oxide is stopped and pure oxygen is administered for a short period. Within minutes, you'll be able to sit up and resume normal activities. You may drive yourself home after your treatment as well.

Oral conscious sedation allows for a deeper, pain-free experience for your dental treatment/procedure. The patient simply takes a pill and remains awake during the procedure, able to respond to questions and commands, but in a heightened state of peace. Many patients who use oral sedation do not remember anything about their procedure. This type of sedation requires that you have a trustworthy friend or family member to drive you home from your treatment appointment and remain with you for 6 hours after the treatment.

IV sedation, or intravenous sedation, is administered through a needle into the vein. Sedation works quickly and is safe and effective in providing the most pain-free, comfortable, and relaxed dental treatment possible. A second practitioner who specializes in dental sedation will come to our office and sedate and monitor you for the duration of your endodontic root canal treatment. IV sedation requires a trustworthy friend or family member to drive you home from your treatment and remain with you for 6 hours after treatment.

Patients with dental anxiety don’t have to suffer from pain, dental damage, or worry about the long-lasting consequences from avoiding dental work. Instead, they can experience peace of mind knowing there are dental sedation specialists in Utah at Greater Endodontics that can gently soothe them and allow them to receive the dental work they need.

Fifteen months ago I had a root canal at a different endodontist in Salt Lake. Ever since that time, my teeth had been in pain. For the past twelve months I have visited with the team at Greater Endodontics four seperate times, specifically with Dr. Matt LeCheminant. Even though the problem was not readily apparent and...

This place was awesome. Very helpful and comfortable. Best part about was the doc is a 49ers fan. Watched Netflix the entire time. The only thing that was missing is a shot and a Beer.

I had a very easy going time during my procedure. I really enjoyed the TV mounted to ceiling! It made the visit go much faster and I wasn’t concerned with what they were doing. Great place!
— Chase Cheney, Posted January 3rd 2022 on google
I was referred to Dr. Facer after sustaining a fractured tooth in a biking accident. The staff was friendly, supportive, and great at communicating everything that was going on. Dr. Facer completed a phenomenal root canal on my tooth, all while dealing with the complicated factor of me having a broken jaw/limited openi...

Dr. Brockbank and his assistant could not have been more caring during my emergency root canal, making certain that I felt no pain during the procedure. I was highly impressed with Dr. Brockbank’s professionalism and skills as a dental surgeon. I very much appreciate their office working with my dentist to find an ap...

I'm so glad I went here. I can't say I enjoyed it or that it was comfortable but I had a tooth with really deep roots and I kept burning through the anesthesia. I think I counted 8 shots before I was done. However, I believe anyone else would have made this uncomfortable experience incredibly painful. Fortunately, ...

This was my first time having a root canal and I was dozing off during my appointment because I was so comfortable. I will recommend this office to everyone I know! Their staff was so friendly and helpful explaining the entire process. The Dr. and assistant eased my mind and asked me if I was doing okay through the ent...

The staff was Friendly and Professional. They got me right in and were very helpful and answered all my questions.

They let me know up front...

I've had a lot of root canals and dental work - like a LOT. My regular dentist was in the middle of crowning a tooth when it was determined that I needed an urgent root canal. Greater Endodontics had me in and the root canal completed less than 24 hours later and were SO gentle and SO clean. The office is very comforta...
— Tiffany Barrett, Posted July 9th 2021 on google
The office staff was friendly and helpful upon my first call through my appointment and checkout. Dr Facer was very experienced, kind, compassionate and honest about a treatment plan and gave me multiple options. I highly recommend Greater Endodontics.
— Jennie Johnson, Posted July 2nd 2021 on google
I had an intensive root canal re-treatment today... something that was possibly going to require a more extensive surgical procedure. Dr. LeCheminant was excellent!! He listened to my concerns and anxieties, answered questions, made adjustments and accommodations to keep me calm and did excellent work! This probably s...

Needed an emergency root canal and they were able to accommodate me. Excellent, friendly staff and the Dr. Brockbank made sure I had absolutely no pain while he performed a very deep root canal. Thank you so much!!!
— Jodie Post, Posted June 4th 2021 on google
Dr. Matt L. is awesome!!! He is my "go to"!! He is the best!!! I highly suggest Dr. Lecheminant to anyone that needs the pain to be eliminated in a professional and with ultimate expertise. Thank you!

A great experience in every way. I particularly appreciated the way that the procedures were explained to me in advance as well as during treatment. The front desk staff were professional and had everything ready to go when I arrived. The endodontist and technician were excellent and gave me every confidence in their w...

Only pain was the numbing shots. Procedure was done quickly and efficiently. Recovery has caused no pain. 10/10
— Hannah Elder, Posted May 25th 2021 on google
Honestly, the worst part was the mental anxiety I put on myself before I went in. I feel like an idiot after going through the process and finding out how easy, fast and painless it was. I highly recommend.
— Aaron Wernli, Posted May 20th 2021 on google
I had an issue with an unfinished root canal and ended up being referred to Greater Endo. I was very nervous, but Dr LeCheminant was so kind and helpful. I was very impressed with their state of the art technology, the friendliness of the employees, and how quick and easy the whole process was. I couldn’t be happier ...

What to Know Before and After Sedation


There are some things to consider about the aftermath of your dental sedation procedure, both for the patient and the responsible party caring for the patient after they leave our Greater Endodontics facility.

As the Patient

After sedation, it is normal to feel tired and sleep for several hours. You may only have a vague recollection of what transpired. Remember:

  • Do not drive a vehicle, operate machinery or make any important decisions for 24 hours.
  • Remember to drink plenty of fluids.
  • Eat soft foods that are easy to chew and digest.
  • Please review the written instructions and remember to take any prescribed medications. Call at any time with any questions.
  • If you experience difficulty breathing at any time, contact emergency medical services (911).

As the Responsible Party Caring for the Patient

A responsible person should be with the patient until they have fully recovered from the effects of sedation.

  • Patients may be asleep or may be alert when they leave. Attend to either alert or sleepy patients in the same manner.
  • Don't trust the patient alone.
  • Hold the patient's arm when walking, especially up/down the stairs and entering/exiting vehicles.
  • Please make sure the patient uses their seat belt on the ride home.
