Sedation Dentistry

Do you put off making appointments to see a dentist because the mere thought of stepping into a dental office fills you with anxiety?

Board-certified oral surgeon Ryan K. Austin, DDS, offers sedation dentistry to make your appointment relaxing and pain-free.

Here's how sedation at our oral surgery practice serving Brigham City and South Ogden, UT, can help you get the dental care you need...

I May Need Sedation to Keep Me Calm at the Dentist Do Other People Feel This Way?

If you're feeling anxious before each dental visit, you're definitely not alone. Many people experience what is known as dental anxiety, which makes them afraid of dentists and dental procedures. In fact, a dental study in the journal Medical Principles and Practice states:

36 percent of people suffer from dental anxiety with 12 percent suffering from extreme fear when it comes to dentistry in general

This can cause patients who need dentistry to avoid seeing their dentist, causing a decline in their oral health.

Don't let fear or anxiety keep you from getting the dental care you need. If you need a dental implant, tooth extraction, or other oral surgery procedure but are afraid of going to the dentist, contact our office to learn how sedation can make your appointment with Dr. Austin a pleasant, non-stressful experience. We have two convenient locations in South Ogden and Brigham City, UT.

Amazing at what he does! Removed wisdom teeth in under a half hour and entire procedure (sedation and recovery) took just over an hour. Professional flawless cuts and quick removal resulted in surprisingly little pain and no problems. Great staff all around!

Does Dr. Austin Offer Oral Sedation?


He does not. Oral sedation takes much longer to work, unlike nitrous oxide or IV sedation.
