Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective alternative to dental phobia and anxiety. Dr. Samuel Richey may recommend sedation to help relax patients who are anxious or afraid, struggle with a bad gag reflex or limited jaw opening, have a hard time getting totally numb, or need surgical treatment or extensive restorative treatment. Our dentist and team offer oral and IV sedation dentistry in Riverton, Utah, so that we can provide quality dental care at Lighthouse Dental & Orthodontics. If you would like to try sedation dentistry, we invite you to contact our office or express your concern at your next appointment.
