A better life starts with a beautiful smile. Claim yours today!
Sedation dentistry is exactly what it sounds like. Before a dental procedure takes place, usually a surgery, you are sedated, eliminating anxiety and allowing you to have a peaceful experience at your dentist’s office. There is a common nerve-wracking feeling that many feel when they think about going to the dentist.
Sometimes sedation dentistry is used along with numbing so a dental procedure is less painful. Our team at Platinum Dental Care West Jordan wants our patients to look forward to visiting their dentist and improving their smile.

What types of sedation dentistry are there?
The most commonly used sedation dentistry is nitrous oxide, or “happy gas.” It is breathed in through a face mask and only takes a few minutes to kick in. Most patients report feeling like they slept through their appointment with this sedation technique.
Sedation dentistry can also take place orally, via a pill, or through an IV in your bloodstream. Talk to our team and see if one of these methods is a good option for you.
Why should I consider
- You experience anxiety when visiting your dentist
- You are undergoing an oral surgery
- You will undergo a long dental procedure
- You have a fear of needles
- Numbing isn’t enough to make you feel calm
Avoiding the dentist because of anxiety or fear is understandable, but we want to help you overcome it. Stop by our office at Platinum Dental Care West Jordan and learn how we can make your visits peaceful today!
