According to WebMD, as many as 20 percent of Americans avoid preventative dental treatments due to dental anxiety. Drs. Daren Larsen and Josh Haslem understand the impact dental anxiety can have on a person’s oral health. We realize that providing gentle dental care is not enough for many patients struggling to manage their fear of the dentist. Because healthy teeth are so important, we provide a number of options for patients with dental anxiety. We are proud to offer our patients sedation dentistry in Vernal, UT.
We offer a number of options for sedation dentistry in Vernal, UT, including oral sedation, nitrous oxide and local anesthetic.
Administered in pill form, oral sedation puts you in a relaxed state for the duration of your visit. You will be conscious and able to respond to the doctor’s requests, but you will also be in an entirely restful state.
Laughing gas almost immediately relaxes you. Because nitrous oxide works so quickly, Drs. Larsen and Haslem can adjust your level of sedation easily. The effects wear off almost immediately so that no escort is needed for your trip home.
We also offer local anesthetic which is administered via injection to quickly numb the parts of your mouth that are going to be treated on your visit.
Our dedicated doctors and caring staff make your safety and comfort a priority. By offering sedation dentistry and a gentle touch, we are better able to serve those who are afraid of the dentist.
