Dental Sedation Aftercare - Utah Endodontist

At Greater Endodontics we believe that dental procedures should be painless and worry free. For patients who experience dental anxiety, we offer a wide range of sedation services to ensure a comfortable appointment. Depending on the type of procedure being performed and the amount of anxiety experienced by the patient, different types of sedation will be used. If you are to receive sedation during your appointment, your Utah dental sedation specialist will give you any necessary preparation instructions. There may be a few side effects after the procedure is completed, and the following aftercare instructions are important for the type of sedation you receive:

Aftercare - Sedation

If you experience difficulty breathing at any time, contact EMS (911).


We have treated you under conscious sedation, providing you with the most relaxing, comfortable experience possible. It is normal to feel tired after sedation 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 and 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.


A responsible person should be with the patient until he/she has 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 him/her 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.

Chipped Tooth

Most chipped teeth can be repaired with a simple filling and cap. However, a fracture often extends to the roots, exposing the pulp of the tooth. A root canal treatment is usually required to save and restore function to the tooth.

Dislodged Tooth

A tooth becomes dislodged as a result of being pushed sideways out of or into its socket. In order to save the tooth, an endodontic treatment is necessary to reposition and stabilize the tooth. If the pulp of the tooth has been damaged a root canal must be started in addition to medication followed by a permanent a root canal filling or crown placed at a later date.

Avulsed (knocked out) Tooth

If a tooth is completely knocked out of your mouth it is essential to contact an endodontist immediately. The tooth may be saved if treatment is received quickly and critical steps are followed. Pick up the tooth by the biting surface, do not touch the roots, and gently rinse. If possible, place the tooth back into the socket or in a glass of milk in order to prevent it from drying out. Depending on the length of time the tooth was out and how it was stored, an endodontist may be able to replace the tooth and stabilize it with a splint. After the splint has been in place for a period of time a root canal is needed.

Root Fractures

A horizontal root fracture is less common and the healing success largely depends on where the fracture is located. The closer a fracture is to the tip of the root, the greater the chance of success is. Stabilization and medication may be required to begin the healing process followed by the eventual root canal to repair damaged pulp.
