Relaxing Sedation Dentistry
Does the thought of going to the dentist make you feel uneasy? Have you avoided making even a cleaning appointment for years because of anxiety over the visit? If so, you’re not alone! It’s estimated that anywhere from 9 to 15% of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of dental anxiety. But at Canyon Crest Dental, we never want you to sacrifice your oral health. That’s why we focus on creating a relaxing office environment and offer sedation options to help calm your nerves while we work.CONTACT US
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a sweet-smelling gas that we administer through a mask worn over the nose. It creates a heightened sense of relaxation and may even give you the giggles. We can use nitrous oxide to help ease your worries during an exam and cleaning or to help you relax while we place a filling or crown.
DentalVibe® Painless Injection System
For some of our patients, the numbing shot is something that gets them feeling anxious. If that sounds like you, let us know! At our Lehi dental office, we have the DentalVibe painless injection system that makes administering local anesthesia a breeze. The DentalVibe system uses gentle vibrations to block pain sensations from ever making to the pain receptors in your brain. This helps to reduce the discomfort you might feel from a normal injection.
After your appointment is over, it’s not comfortable to leave our office with numb lips or cheeks. With OraVerse we can reverse the effects of local anesthesia so you can get back to feeling normal in only about an hour, compared to two or more hours without OraVerse. It works by increasing the blood flow to the soft tissues of the mouth, helping feeling return fast!
