Sedation Dentistry in Calgary
If you’re fearful or anxious about coming to our office for an appointment, sedation or “sleep” dentistry may be a good option for you. Anxiety can keep you from coming in for necessary dental examinations or treatments vital to your dental health.
Oral conscious sedation is an excellent option for anxious patients. We can prescribe an oral sedative that you take prior to your appointment. The sedative will help you enter a relaxed and calm state of mind. You will be only slightly aware of your dental treatment and will not experience any pain. The sedative effect may last for some time after your appointment so you need to arrange transportation home.
Nitrous oxide gas, also known more commonly as laughing gas is used either alone or with oral sedative to provide a mild level of sedation. The effects wear off quickly and you will be able to drive yourself home after your appointment.
If you are anxious about visiting our office, call us today to discuss sedation options.
