Picture the following scenario: You are stretched out in a chair at your dentist office holding a remote as you try to tune into your favorite Utah radio station. A woman clips a paper bib around your neck. Someone switches on a bright overhead light and you see latex-gloved hands moving toward your open mouth. You close your eyes.
As you read this, does your heart start to race? Are your palms sweaty?
If so, you may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry. Oral sedation benefits nervous dental patients in Provo every day. Moderate sedation is used for all types of dental procedures such as root canals, dental implants, and wisdom teeth removal. If you are considering extensive restorative or cosmetic dental work, conscious sedation may allow your Provo dentist to complete multiple procedures in a single visit.
