Laughing Gas and Conscious Sedation in Sugar House

Sedation dentist Dr. Theurer has several sedation dentistry options that make your experience at the dentist not only less stressful—but even relaxing!

Oral Sedation Dentistry

Oral sedation dentistry is very simple. Our sedation dentist gives you a pill that you will take before you get your dental work. This pill helps you relax. Its purpose is not to make you fall asleep, but merely to help you feel relaxed and comfortable during your treatment. You may feel groggy during your treatment, and you might even forget you even had dental treatment. You are awake and aware for your appointment, just calmer.

When using oral sedation dentistry, because you are a little groggy, you will need a ride to and from your appointment.

Laughing Gas Sedation Dentistry

Although it’s called laughing gas, you need not worry about giggling uncontrollably—it merely relaxes your body and emotional stress. Laughing gas is administered to you through a breathing mask placed over your nose.

This time-tested method has many bonuses. First, it is quickly assimilated when it is administered. Secondly, it quickly leaves your system after you are through with your procedure. This means that you can drive yourself to and from your appointment.
