Dental Sedation in Provo, UT
Every person has their own personal tolerance for discomforts that may come from dental procedures, especially when it comes to root canals. 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! At Cascade Endodontics, we know that even thinking about getting a root canal can be stressful for patients, so we go out of our way to make the procedure as comfortable as we can.
Laughing Gas Sedation
Laughing gas sedation 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.
Conscious sedation, or oral conscious sedation, is the combination of laughing gas 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 monitor your sedation through an IV during your treatment. This procedure also requires a prior evaluation and an escort.
