Do you have a fear of going to the dentist? Does the thought of getting your teeth clean just make you cringe with fear? Do you hate going in and fixing a tooth? Would you rather just endure the pain and not go? Do not worry you’re not alone. Many people deal with this fear. If this is you don’t fear there are many solutions to your problem. Here at Rogers Dentist Spanish Fork we have a solution that will fit your needs. We provide the options of getting a sedation dentistry.


What exactly is a sedation dentistry? Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax while at the dentist. Sedation dentistry provides a way for you to have a comfortable and relaxing trip. There is no stress involved. You will feel completely relaxed. Fortunately this medication has an amnesic effect which means that you will hardly remember your visit. This is a great way to enjoy your dentistry experience. You will be completely relaxed and it will go by so fast. Your teeth will be healthy and clean and it won’t even take very long.


There are different levels of sedation minimal, moderate, deep, and general anesthesia. For minimal sedation you are awake but completely relaxed. Moderate you are relaxed and may slur your words but you won’t remember much of the procedure. Deep sedation is when you are on the edge of consciousness but will still be awake. General anesthesia is when you are completely unconscious. All of these offer a relaxing procedure. Patients are normally awake but will feel one-hundred percent relaxed.
