Sedation Dentistry in SE Calgary
Is anxiety keeping you from visiting the dentist? Don’t worry, we are here to help. At Forest Lawn Dental Centre, we understand the fear and dread some people experience when planning a trip to the dentist. Some would rather risk their oral health than make an appointment for a dental checkup. Fortunately, our sedation dentistry in Calgary is the perfect solution.
For patients in Calgary, sedation dentistry comes in two different forms: IV sedation and oral sedation. In most instances, your dentist will recommend a type of sedation they believe will work best for you. This recommendation may be based on your age, health, as well as the type of procedure being performed.
In the various question and answer sections on this page, we attempt to answer many of the most common questions we receive from patients in Calgary. Sedation dentistry can be a difficult topic to grasp, so if you have any questions regarding the application of oral or IV sedatives that aren’t answered on this page, please feel free to call us prior to your appointment.
