Why Provide Sedation Dentistry?
Our staff and Dr. Allan S. Thomas, DMD have taken special training to offer sedation dentistry services from our Salt Lake City clinic. However, sedation dentistry isn’t just for adults. We also offer oral sedation for kids. Formative years are especially important to oral health, so our pediatric sedation dentistry offers extra care for anxious children.
Types of Dental Sedation Dr. Thomas Provides
Nitrous Oxide: Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a harmless, breathable gas that is administered through a respirator mask. Patients often report numbness and a loopy, silly feeling after receiving this treatment.
Oral Conscious Sedation: Usually administered through pills or capsules, this type of sedative is extremely effective at relieving anxiety and discomfort.
IV Sedation Dentistry: Often used for more serious procedures like wisdom teeth removal, IV sedation is administered through a method that puts patients to sleep for the procedure.
