Sedation Dentistry

At Cottonwood Family Dental in Murray, Utah, Dr. Chip Packer and Dr. Downing make your smile an affordable priority.

Sedation dentistry refers to the use of pharmacological agents to calm and relax a patient prior to and during a dental appointment. The pharmacological agents usually belong to a class of drugs called sedatives, which exert their action by depressing the central nervous system, specifically those areas concerned with conscious awareness.


What are the Benefits?

Sedation dentistry has become very popular because it offers several benefits for both the patient and the dentist. For some patient groups, the use of sedation dentistry is actually the only way that they can get the dental care they need and improve their dental health. Dental sedation can offer:


  • Patient relaxation

  • Increased comfort

  • Movement control

  • Patient co-operation

  • Control of gag reflex

  • Little or no memory of treatment

  • Time saving - Fewer appointments needed

All services are provided by our Dentist and/or staff in Murray, Utah.
