Sedation Dentistry in Murray, UT

Effective remedies for dental anxiety

Many people put off essential trips to the dentist because of the amount of stress and anxiety they experience at just the thought of dental procedures. At Murray Dental Care, we understand that dental anxiety can be a factor in your visit, which is why we are devoted to making your stay with us as comfortable as possible. Beyond a professional staff and a comfortable setting, we offer a number of sedation options that can be used in addition to general anesthesia to make your visit more pleasant. The more relaxed you are, the faster and more effective the procedure will be. Your well-being and comfort are of paramount importance, so you can count on our compassionate team to ease your fears and provide excellent care while keeping your visit pleasant and stress-free.

Making visits easier with sedation dentistry

If you are feeling anxious about your next trip to the dentist, Murray Dental Care has a variety of options for 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. Our sedation options include:

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. Murray Dental Care follows all guidelines set forth by the American Dental Association, and our staff is fully educated and trained to administer oral sedation.

Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)

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 at all anxious about your next dental visit and just need something to help calm your nerves, then NO2 sedation is the perfect solution.

Sleep dentistry

For more complex dental treatments, Murray Dental Care offers intravenous (IV) sedation. 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, Dr. Townsend would be happy to sedate you for your treatment. We offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation to make your dental visit comfortable.
