Every person has their own personal tolerance for discomforts that may come from dental procedures. Some people prefer nothing other than local anesthesia while others prefer to be sedated. Dr. Jon Jenson at Cascade Endodontics in Orem, UT understands this and provides three levels of sedation dentistry to make your visit as pleasant as possible. He is one of the only endodontists in the area, and perhaps the only endodontist in Utah County to offer any form of sedation dentistry for his patients. In fact, other endodontists are sending their patients who need sedation to Dr. Jenson for treatment!
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation, or the use of “laughing gas”, is used to reduce anxiety and produce a state of relaxation to help you through the dental procedure. This is an inexpensive method of sedation dentistry that comes recommended if it means the difference between peace and comfort instead of dental fear and anxiety for you.
“I wanted to THANK YOU ALL FOR FIXING ME!! I’m serious, I had BEEN IN PAIN FOR OVER 3 FULL YRS, NOT just a little but every single day!! I had not been able to eat anything on my right side of my mouth for the same amount of time. You fixed me!! I’m blank on the name of the very sweet and gentle nurse who worked with Dr. Jensen on my mouth, so I would appreciate this message getting to her as well, thank you!! Its the first time in all my dental visits over the course of my life, that my small mouth did not feel like I had an entire Rugby Team in there. You were kind, gentle, and explained things to this Nervous Nellie, to calm me down.”

Conscious sedation is the combination of nitrous oxide with a sedative hypnotic medication that is taken orally. This method of sedation dentistry will provide an even greater level of comfort but requires an evaluation appointment prior to the procedure and bringing an escort with you for the day of the procedure.
The third level of sedation dentistry at Cascade Endodontics is provided by an anesthesiologist in the office who will “put you to sleep” via IV sedation. This procedure also requires a prior evaluation and an escort.
