Sedation Dentistry

Comfortable, Safe Dental Procedures

Afraid of the Dentist? You’ve Come to the Right Place!

It is estimated that over 250,000 Utahns avoid the dentist. Some had traumatic experiences as children. Others suffered pain as adults. Still more are swayed by stereotypes in movies or parental horror stories. For others it’s a simple matter of time. No matter the reason, far too many simply stop seeking routine dental care because of fear or anxiety. Even when faced with warning signs such as pain in their mouths or gums they still stay away from the dentist. Now their overall health may be at risk. If this sounds like you, we want to help. Whether you’ve been postponing a simple dental checkup, restorative care or a brand-new smile, now’s the time to take care of yourself. Now’s the time to move forward into a healthier future. Modern dentistry offers many new tools and options that make necessary treatments not only tolerable but even comfortable using Sedation Dentistry.

Sedation Dentistry is Available for ALL Genesis Dental Services

Genesis Dental’s doctors have chosen to be specially trained to relax their patients creating a safe and comfortable dental experience. These doctors understand that for far too many people dental fear and anxiety complicate access to essential treatment. Called sedation dentists, our skilled practitioners use commonly prescribed sedation medications to calm people. These sedatives have been in use for many years and been subjected to rigorous study. Doctors understand a great deal about how they work and interact with other medications. Usually administered by mouth, the medication leaves people fully alert and able to respond to questions. (That’s why the process is called conscious sedation.) They all undertook hours of additional education in order to practice sedation to meet the needs of those for whom a visit to the dentist may be emotionally challenging.
