When Mommy Is Scared Of The Dentist

sleep dentistry Salt Lake City

If you are dreading some upcoming dental treatment, you may want to consider oral conscious sedation. First off, oral conscious sedation or sleep dentistry is perfectly safe. At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we have been providing sedation dentistry since 2005. We offer different levels of sedation and a choice of medication including oral analgesics, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation.

When choosing a type of sedation, it is helpful to consider the type of anxiety (fear of immobility, fear of loss of control, fear of pain, etc), the specific procedure(s) you will undergo, the length of time required to complete the treatment, past experiences during treatment, and any complicating health problems. Call 801-506-6009 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Clint Blackwood to discuss your options.

Perhaps you have a dentist-wary child who needs treatment. For simple dental procedures, topical anesthetics are applied to the gums and other tissues reducing sensation. If your child requires more sedation, nitrous oxide and general anesthesia are both safe options.

Perhaps Mommy is the one who is anxious about her child undergoing dental work. Sorry – we can’t sedate you while your child is being treated – but you can take comfort in the fact that we take excellent care of our youngest patients. We make sure they are comfortable, relaxed, and understand exactly what is going to happen. Our team of child-friendly dental professionals have been putting children at ease since 2005.

Regular dental check-ups are important for your child’s lifelong oral health, so it is important that your child has a positive experience during dental visits. If possible, don’t let your child know that you have dental anxiety. If he/she already knows, explain why your fears are unreasonable and why you are having treatment regardless of your anxiety. Show them how brave Mommy is because she wants healthy teeth.

Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS offers full-service dental care including sedation dentistry, teeth whitening, and wisdom teeth removal. Thanks for visiting our blog. Check back for more helpful dental specifics from Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS in Murray.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe For Murray Smiles?

Affordable Murray Dentistry Sedation When I discuss sedation dentistry with new Salt Lake City cosmetic dentistry patients, I encounter many misconceptions. The purpose of today’s Salt Lake Dental Care dentistry article is to debunk some of the most common myths about dental sedation.

Myth #1: With Sedation Dentistry, You Are Completely Unconscious

Some nervous Murray dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. At Salt Lake Dental Care, we offer different levels of sedation, but none of the sedation options put you completely to sleep. With oral sedation you are relaxed but not totally knocked out. When we need to ask a dental sedation patient a question during the treatment, the patient is able to hear, understand, and respond.

Myth #2: Taylorsville Dental Sedation Should Only Be Used For Extensive Dental Treatment

Salt Lake City anxiety-free dentistry is completely safe. Many nervous sedation dentistry patients request sedation for routine exams and procedures.

Myth #3: Most Utah Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Sleep Dentistry

Some Utah dental insurers do cover sedation. Check with your insurer for details about your Utah dental insurance benefits.

Myth #4: Murray Sleep Dentistry Is Still Experimental

Salt Lake City cosmetic dentists have been safely providing sedation for many years. Salt Lake Dental Care meets all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Millions of Americans and thousands of Utah dental patients have safely received sedation for dental treatment.

For more information about anxiety-free dentistry, contact Salt Lake Dental Care at http://www.saltlakedentalcare.com/meet-dr-blackwood/ or 801-506-6009 today to schedule a sedation consultation.

Sedation Dentistry In Murray For Kids And Parents

Sedation Dentistry In Murray For Kids And Parents

At Salt Lake Dental Care we know that many Murray children are afraid of going to the dentist. I am Clint Blackwood, and my staff and I at Salt Lake Dental Care want to make your child’s first visit to my Murray practice a positive experience. Regular dental check-ups from toddler age are an essential part of oral hygiene.

Utah parents can follow these guidelines to help prepare their child for a dental visit.

1. Talk about the exam with your child. Answer any questions with uncomplicated answers.
2. Don’t share your bad dental experiences with your child.
3. Don’t imply that the exam will be painful.
4. Help your child understand that this is an important part of staying healthy.
5. Don’t offer a reward for visiting the dentist.

It is important for parents to make sure they aren’t anxious about Murray dental visits because children can sense their stress.

At Salt Lake Dental Care we have been treating children and adults since 2005. Our professional, friendly staff can calm the nerves of a fearful child and help them have a gentle, anxiety-free dental experience.

If you or your Murray child has had a bad dental experience or is unable to stay calm while visiting the dentist, ask us about sedation dentistry. We want all of our patients to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible while receiving excellent dental care.

For simple dental procedures, topical anesthetics are applied to the gums and other tissues reducing oral sensation. If you require more sedation, nitrous oxide and IV sedation are safe solutions.

Salt Lake Dental Care also offers complete smile makeovers which may include dental implants, teeth whitening, dental veneers, or any other cosmetic dental procedures required. All of these can be done with some type of sedation if needed.

Don’t let your fears or your child’s fears keep your child from having a beautiful, healthy smile. Contact Salt Lake Dental Care at 801-938-8855 today!

Sedation Dentistry in Murray

Sedation Dentistry in Murray UT Picture the following scenario: You are stretched out in a chair at your Murray UT dentist’s office holding a remote as you try to tune into your favorite local radio station. An assistant clips a paper bib around your neck. Someone switches on a bright overhead light and you see latex-gloved hands moving toward your open mouth. You close your eyes.

As you read this, does your heart begin racing? Are your palms sweaty?

If so, you may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry. Oral sedation benefits nervous dental patients in Murray UT every day. Moderate sedation is used for all types of Salt Lake City area dental procedures such as root canal therapy, dental implants, and wisdom teeth removal. If you are considering extensive restorative or cosmetic dental work, conscious sedation may allow your cosmetic dentist to complete multiple procedures in a single visit.

Don’t let fear prevent you from getting the dental treatment you need. Schedule a visit with Dr. Clint Blackwood to learn about conscious sedation dentistry.

Relieving Your Dental Anxiety At Salt Lake Dental Care – Dr. Clint Blackwood

Sedation Dentist Salt Lake City

Hello Salt Lake City dental blog visitors, welcome to the Salt Lake Dental Care blog. I am Dr. Clint Blackwood and I specialize in general dentistry and dental implants.

A close friend of mine in Salt Lake City recently expressed fears about her upcoming root canal. She was anxious about the pain she might experience and worried about getting work off for the multiple office visits to complete the procedure. I assured her that painful root canal procedures are a thing of the past with modern Salt Lake City dentistry.

With the latest technology and anesthetics, a root canal (endodontic treatment) is no more painful than receiving a filling. Most root canals can be completed in one or two short office visits.

My friend’s anxiety was diminished when she knew what to expect. If you have been neglecting your teeth because of fears or concerns about a particular procedure and have not been to your Salt Lake City dentist recently, I encourage you to schedule an exam, cleaning, and consultation today. We are accepting new dentistry patients at Salt Lake Dental Care – Dr. Clint Blackwood.

My staff and I at Salt Lake Dental Care offer clear braces, fast teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and all general and preventative dental procedures.

If you are interested in dentures or general dentistry, call us today to schedule an appointment.
