If you are nervous about sitting in the dental chair for treatment, our dentists can prescribe a sedation drug to help you feel relaxed and free of dental anxiety during your visit to Out Of This World Dentistry. Dr. Stark and our team offer Valium® among our many options for sedation dentistry.
Valium is a benzodiazepine, a class of medication used to treat anxiety, agitation, and more. Its amnesic effects make it a popular choice for sedation, and it has a longer half-life than many medications, which makes it well suited for longer dental procedures.
Our doctors will administer Valium in a liquid form prior to your treatment. Please be aware that you may need to arrive an hour early to allow the medication to take full effect before your appointment. It produces sleep and amnesia at mild levels, so you may feel drowsy during treatment and will typically not recall the details of your visit. Valium is time tested and very safe for patients.
Please feel free to contact our office at 801-571-6751 today if you are concerned about an upcoming visit with our doctors and would like to learn more about Valium in Draper, Utah, or South or West Jordan. We would be happy to answer all of your questions about sedation dentistry.
