Sedation Dentistry in Fort McMurray
To relieve the very real and often debilitating anxiety associated with dental phobia, we offer oral conscious sedation, also known as sedation dentistry. Patients who feel stressed about dental work, as well as those who need multiple procedures performed in one visit, benefit from conscious sedation.
Sedation dentistry has helped many patients overcome the barriers created by profound anxieties about dental procedures that stand in the way of optimal oral health.
The procedure involves taking an oral sedative prior to and during your visit. Your vital signs and comfort level are constantly monitored throughout your visit.
Call our office to schedule a sedation consulation - we look forward to welcoming you to our office.
Patients who receive conscious sedation usually are able to speak and respond to verbal cues throughout the procedure, communicating any discomfort they experience to the dentist. While you are under the effects of the drug, the dentist can perform your dental work, and you will remain comfortable. A brief period of amnesia may erase any memory of the procedure. After your procedure(s), you will need a ride home from the dental office. The following day, the sedative will clear the body so that you can resume daily activities.
