Making Visits Easier With Oral Sedation Dentistry
If you are feeling anxious about your next trip to the dentist, Abundant Dental Care has a variety of options to enhance your dental comfort. We offer three types of sedation dentistry that will allow you to be treated by one of our experienced dentists without worry or fear.
Oral Sedation Dentistry
Oral sedation dentistry is a form of conscious sedation that alleviates anxiety and pain during dental procedures. You will be given an oral sedative that will assist you with any dental anxiety from prior dental trauma or simply a general fear of going to the dentist. Abundant Dental Care in Murray, Utah follows all guidelines set forth by the American Dental Association, and our staff is fully educated and trained to administer oral sedation.
Nitrogen Dioxide (N2O)
Also known as “laughing gas,” this form of conscious inhalation sedation is delivered as a breathable gas through a small mask. This method is a safe and sometimes preferred approach to making you comfortable since it is easy to tolerate for a wide variety of dental procedures, including simple cleanings and exams, fillings, crowns, x-rays, and more! If you are anxious about your next dental visit and just need something to help calm your nerves, then N2O sedation is the perfect solution.
For more complex dental treatments, Abundant Dental Care in Riverton, Utah offers intravenous (IV) sedation (sleep dentistry). This option is available for all patients who require extensive dental work, suffer from back or neck problems, or simply require more sedation to alleviate anxiety or fear of dental visits. You will experience complete relaxation during and after your procedure, and you will have little to no memory of the procedure itself. For patients with a strong gag reflex or severe anxiety, sleep dentistry can be an ideal remedy for helping you overcome the obstacles that bar you from achieving the smile you deserve.
If you are nervous about your dental visit, our dentists would be happy to sedate you for your treatment. We offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation to make your dental visit comfortable.
