Sandy, UT -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/09/2018 -- Apex Family Dental of Utah strives to relax patients who struggle with anxiety or nervousness when it comes to visiting a dentist. So much so, in fact, that their dentists grant their patients a variety of sedation options to help alleviate their symptoms. Sedation options extend to child-age patients, whose energy can otherwise make sitting still during treatment difficult.

Apex Family Dental provides various types and degrees of sedation, utilizing a highly-trained anesthesiologist who is brought into their office during the patient's dental treatment.

Oral sedatives are frequently prescribed to patients prior to a dental procedure. Oral sedation is a common option for patients that are too young to remain still during a procedure. Their team always takes special care to make sure that patients of all ages are administered the correct dosage. Patients who opt for this method should arrange for a designated driver to take them to and from their appointment.

Apex Dental also provides nitrous oxide sedation, sometimes known as 'laughing gas,' which is inhaled by the patient to produce a calm, relaxed feeling. Patients are given a mask that allows them to inhale through the nose and mouth, while a relaxing, possibly numbing sensation sets in within mere minutes. Once the effect of the sedative sets in, any necessary anesthetic is applied, and treatment begins. Additionally, Apex Dental also provides intravenous sedation.
