Dental Sedation Specialist Utah


Patients with dental anxiety shouldn’t have to suffer with pain or the symptoms of dental damage, or worry about the long-lasting consequences of avoiding dental work. Utah dental sedation gently soothes the patient and allows them to receive the dental work they need in a comfortable and relaxed state of mind.

Endodontic Treatments


A severe toothache may mean the tooth's soft inner tissue is damaged or infected as a result of deep decay or trauma. A Utah endodontic treatment, such as root canal therapy, can relieve the pain and save the tooth by removing the pulp and cleaning, filling and sealing the canals. The tooth is then restored with a crown or other restoration.

Greater Endodontics Sedation Options


Anxiolytics

A Valium type drug may be prescribed prior to your appointment to reduce anxiety. This medication allows you to come to the office in a more relaxed, comfortable state of mind. A trustworthy escort is required to drive you to and from your treatment, staying with you for 4 hours afterwards.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a mild form of sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide is administered as the patient inhales the gas, all while being carefully monitored by their dentist. The small mask fits comfortably over the nose, and can be adjusted whenever necessary. Once your dosage is correct, and you feel relaxed, we can begin your procedure. When the procedure is over, the flow of nitrous oxide is stopped, and we will administer pure oxygen 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

Oral conscious sedation allows for a deeper, pain-free experience for your endodontic root canal treatment. 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 do not remember anything about their procedure and walk away with wonderful results. This type of sedation requires that you have a trustworthy escort to drive you home from your treatment appointment and remain with you for 6 hours after the treatment.

IV Sedation

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 to you for the duration of your endodontic root canal treatment. IV sedation requires a trustworthy escort to drive you home from your treatment and remain with you for 6 hours after treatment.
