Afraid of the Dentist? 5 Ways to Reduce Dental Anxiety

dental anxiety treatment Salt Lake City

If you tense up just thinking about going to the dentist, you may benefit from sedation dentistry offered by The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City.

Millions of Americans stress out when they have to see the dentist. It is referred to as dental anxiety. There is a more severe form, too, called dental phobia. In both, some people would rather skip the dentist altogether, than sit down for a checkup. The problem with that, of course, is it puts their dental health at risk.

Whatever the cause, sedation dentistry has helped millions of people get through their appointments.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

At our practice, we offer two main types of sedation for our patients.

  • Nitrous Oxide: You also know this as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for more than a century and is highly effective.
  • Oral Conscious Sedation: You take a sedative an hour or so before the appointment. You won’t sleep, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. When the appointment is over, someone will have to drive you home.

Don’t compromise your dental health by skipping the dentist! Sedation dentistry from The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City may be just for you. Our services also include cosmetic and family dentistry. Request an appointment today!
