Sedation dentistry helps you manage your fears and phobias associated with dental treatment. The methods and medications of sedation dentistry can eliminate stress and anxiety, enabling you to receive the dental treatments you require. It can be ideal for clients who:
✔ Have intolerable anxiety associated with dental procedures
✔ Need multiple procedures simultaneously.
✔ Are undergoing oral surgery
✔ Have lower pain thresholds
✔ Sensitive teeth
✔ Strong gag reflex
The type of sedation depends entirely upon your medical history, dental procedure, and the severity of your anxiety.
Oral sedation is an excellent option for patients who do not like needles. It effectively makes them feel more relaxed undergoing extensive dental work and comfortable throughout the procedure.
It’s always a good idea to have someone drive you to and from your dental appointment so that the effects of oral sedation do not impair you while driving.
To discuss oral sedation dentistry, Calgary patients can consult with Dr. Sandhu by calling Forest Lawn Dental Centre to discuss whether oral sedation or IV sedation may be the ideal type of sedation during their procedure.
