Eliminating Dental Phobia with Pain Free Dentistry in Murray UT
With pain free dentistry, you may actually stop feeling any dental anxiety at all. Dental sedation medication isn’t meant to make you fall asleep, though you may be drowsy. What pain free dentistry does is help you relax. You are awake and aware, not just as stimulated by what is going on around you that can make you anxious. It may be that with the pain free dentistry treatments, you don’t remember any of the procedure. And one of the big benefits is our sedation dentist can actually lessen the pain you feel during your procedures. How? When you are tense, you feel pain more particularly and acutely. When you are relaxed using pain free dentistry, your pain may lessen dramatically.
Each dental sedation method produces the same calm, relaxed effect but has a different pain free dentistry system to create that relaxation.
NITROUS OXIDE | This dental sedation is a gas mixed with oxygen that you breathe through a tube given to you by our sedation dentist. It is fast acting and leaves your system quickly. It is time tested and proven very safe.
ORAL CONSCIOUS SEDATION | This dental sedation method is a pill we give to you that you will take right before your next appointment with us. It may make you groggy, so you will need to find transportation to and from your appointment.
IV SEDATION | This dental sedation medication is through an IV tube. Your sedation dentist will monitor you closely so you will feel relaxed and comfortable during your dental procedures.
