Sedation Dentistry Offered In Calgary

Sedation Dentistry in Calgary allows the most fearful of dental patients to move forward with treatment that they have been avoiding for too long. Creating a sense of being calm, relaxed and in control, Sedation Dentistry makes even the most involved procedures a breeze for both the patient and dentist.

Sedation Dentistry has been available to patients for decades.  Originally geared towards the highly phobic dental patient or patients with mental and/or physical challenges; its ability to calm and relax means that patients with mild dental nerves can benefit.  Oral sedation is an established method of calming patients in preparation for dental treatment.  Depending on the dose given, oral sedation can range from minimum to moderate sedation.

A pill (usually from the Vallium family) is taken one hour prior to appointment.  The pill (medication) creates a drowsy effect, but allows the patient to retain consciousness so that requests and instructions can be heard and completed during the procedure.

Some patients are so relaxed during treatment that they fall asleep, but are easily wakened by a gentle shake.  Patients may remember parts of the dental appointment or nothing at all, depending on the level of sedation.

It’s important to note that a patient is considered to be impaired when taking an Oral Sedation medication.  Having someone bring you to the appointment, take you home and stay with you for the remainder of the day is required.

At Bite Dental in Shawnessy, patients of Dr. Andy Hoe can attest to the many advantages of Sedation Dentistry. No more avoiding dental appointment and completion of years of neglected dentistry can be completed in just a few appointments.

If the thought of going to the dentist fills you with dread and anxiety, call Bite Dental today and discover how this Calgary Dental Office uses Sedation Dentistry and how it may be the perfect option for overcoming your dental nerves.

Bite Dental is located in South West Calgary, in the neighbourhood of Shawnessy, and Welcomes New Patients. 403.201.0483
