It’s quite common for patients to experience stress and anxiety when visiting the dentist. Oftentimes, patients actually avoid dental visits in fear of the discomfort they’ll feel. The problem with this is that neglecting dental appointments puts your teeth at risk of decay and other oral health problems, such as gum disease, tooth loss, and stained teeth.
Fortunately, sedation dentistry in Magna, Utah is a viable option for patients who struggle with oral care.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
Just like it sounds, sedation dentistry utilizes medication to keep patients relaxed and comfortable throughout their dental procedures. Through the use of various sedatives, patients can ease their fears of dental visits and receive the treatment they need without feeling pain or discomfort.
Most often, you’ll be awake during treatment. However, each of our sedative options will help you remain calm and stress-free.
Aside from allowing you to feel at ease during your dental appointment, sedation dentistry allows Dr. Cantwell to perform multiple procedures in one visit, if necessary. Sedation dentistry is also a great option for patients who experience any of the following:
- Low pain tolerance.
- Sensitive teeth.
- Sensitive gag reflex.
We offer sedation dentistry to ensure that all of our patients can receive excellent dental care— regardless of the challenges they face.
