Sedation Dentistry

When you need dental treatment but struggle with anxiety, it may feel impossible to seek care from an oral surgeon.

Dr. Mark L. Newey and the caring team at The Oral & Facial Surgery Center see this problem often. Luckily, we have a solution.

Our surgeon offers two types of sedation dentistry. Reach out to our Clearfield, UT, practice, serving the Layton area to learn how you can benefit from sedation.

We Feature 2 Sedation Dentistry Options

At The Oral & Facial Surgery Center, you can fully relax with nitrous oxide or IV (intravenous) sedation. By offering two different sedation options, we make it easier for our Clearfield, UT, dental patients to undergo necessary dental care without the anxiety they typically experience.

When you meet with Dr. Mark Newey at our Clearfield oral and maxillofacial surgery office, he will assess your health and candidacy to determine the right form of sedation for you. Until then, we can give you a quick rundown of the possibilities.

​Nitrous Oxide
for Lighter Sedation

Have plans for your day? You may want to consider nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, which is a type of conscious sedation. We administer nitrous oxide by placing a mask over your nose, so you can easily breathe in the gas.

Nitrous oxide quickly leaves your system after the nose mask is removed. Unlike with other sedation options like oral sedation and IV sedation, you may be able to drive yourself home once you're done with your visit.

IV Sedation
for Deeper Sedation

For patients who require an extensive procedure or have substantial anxiety, we can provide IV sedation. This option allows patients to have sedation administered directly to the bloodstream. It's more powerful than nitrous oxide and oral sedation, allowing you to drift into a peaceful twilight state.

Afterward, you'll likely have very little memory of your dental procedure. Just remember, you'll need a trusted friend or family member to drive you home and you may want to rest for about 24 hours.

What About Pain? We Offer Anesthetic


For our Clearfield and Layton, UT, patients, sedation is a part of a team effort. Dr. Newey combines a local anesthetic with your choice of nitrous oxide or IV sedation. Whether you are awake with conscious sedation or in a twilight state with deeper sedation, our two-pronged approach keeps you from feeling discomfort and anxiety.

What Are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry? Explore Them During a Consultation

For many of our Clearfield dental patients who experience dental anxiety or have trouble sitting still in the dental chair, sedation can be life-changing. It offers incredible advantages like:

Receiving Much-Needed Care

If your anxiety is bad enough, you may put off necessary oral surgery entirely. With sedation, you can receive the care you need.

Healthy, Functional Smiles

For those who need dental procedures like implants or bone grafting, sedation makes all the difference. It allows our surgeon to treat your dental conditions and restore your smile.

Peace of Mind

Just going to a dental office can be a huge act of bravery when you have dental anxiety. Sedation eases that burden so that you can feel empowered to visit our team worry-free.

Quicker Dentistry Treatment

When you're fully relaxed with laughing gas or IV sedation, it's often easier to conduct your treatment. As a result, we may be able to complete your dental care more quickly.

Are you ready to find the oral surgery treatment you need without all the stress that you may be expecting? Using sedation dentistry, our team makes it possible for you to receive treatments like dental implants or surgery for facial trauma in a more relaxing setting.

Is Sedation Covered by Insurance?

Insurance typically doesn't cover nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and oral conscious sedation. However, it will help with the cost of many procedures deemed necessary for your health.

It can help to think of sedation dentistry as an investment in your oral wellness because it gives you the peace of mind necessary to seek the care you need before your problem becomes worse and requires more extensive treatment. Not to mention, sedation will help you stay completely relaxed.

How Can I Pay for My Treatment?

Our oral surgeon hopes to make a difference in your oral health and function with sedation dentistry. We accept several ways to cover your costs, such as:


Dental Insurance

Though insurance won't cover the cost of your sedation, it can help with many necessary dentistry procedures, including certain oral surgeries. We take most insurances and can confirm if yours is accepted.

Cash or Card

Another way that our Clearfield, UT, dentistry patients cover their oral surgery and sedation is through cash and most major credit cards, like Visa.


Even if you're on a budget, you can still receive sedation with the care you need. Our oral surgeon accepts financing through CareCredit®, a reputable lender that lets you pay for your care in manageable installments.
