Sedation Dentistry in West Jordan
For patients who have dental fears, Dr. David Powell offers soothing sedation dentistry. Patients in the West Jordan area can visit our office for safe laughing gas and IV sedation.
Sedation dentistry is a wonderful choice for patients who feel anxious or nervous about their dental treatment. Sedation dentistry involves using a sedative medication to allow you to feel relaxed and calm during your visit with us.
We are pleased to safely provide both laughing gas and IV sedation to our patients.
Laughing gas is a sedative gas that is mixed with oxygen. When you come in for your procedure, we will gently place a breathing mask over your nose. You simply inhale the laughing gas during treatment to feel totally relaxed.
Laughing gas is a mild form of sedation dentistry. Its effects dissipate after just a few moments after we remove the mask, and you will likely be able to drive yourself home.
IV sedation involves the administration of medication intravenously. IV sedation enables Dr. Powell to provide sedation more quickly, and control the level of sedation based on your needs.
IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation, so you will be awake and able to respond to your dentist’s questions, while still feeling completely at ease. Some patients do fall asleep during treatment simply because they feel so peaceful.
With sedation dentistry, you won’t have to remember the details of your visit. You’ll walk out of our office with a stunning and healthy new smile, without any unpleasant memories or discomfort.
We are confident that our sedation dentistry methods will help you feel more comfortable during any treatment. Our dentist and team care about your unique needs, and they will do anything they can to give you a rewarding dental experience.
