Dental Sedation

Dental Sedation

Fort McMurray Family Dentists

Put a halt to those fears of coming to the dentist. Our team at Franklin Dental want you to feel comfortable while in the dentist’s chair. Our sedation dentistry is a great way to help you relax at the dentist during your procedure. Sedation dentistry can be used for anything at the dentist office from a tooth extraction to a cleaning.

We treat you with respect and professionalism at all times and give you the choice to use this type of treatment.

Aftercare Instructions
It is important you do not drive a motor vehicle for 24 hours after sedation. Please ensure you have arranged transportation after your appointment. Please read the below aftercare instructions for you and your companion. 

Oral Sedation

in Fort McMurray

If you do chose to be sedated, we provide you with oral conscious sedation where you take an oral pill usually about an hour prior to your treatment. You will be awake in the dentist’s chair but sleepy during your procedure and the effects of the sedative will stick around for about 24 hours after the dosage. Since you will be tired, you will need to be driven to and from the dentist so it is imperative to schedule that ride before your appointment. 

We may hook you up to monitors during your routine so that your dentist at Franklin Dental can constantly monitor your heart rate, blood pressure and breathing.

Be Prepared

It is extremely important you follow our instructions if you chose to have sedation. Unless you have medical reasons to eat you should not have solid food or liquid after midnight or for at least 8 hours before your dentist appointment. Please discuss any medical concerns with us prior to the day of your treatment. You will also need to avoid tobacco use for 8 hours before your sedation. Franklin Dental Centre will provide you complete personalized instructions should you decide to go the route of taking an oral sedative.

Come to see us at Franklin Dental Centre for a sedation consultation where we answer your questions and determine if you are a good candidate for this service. 

The consultation is offered for you to feel absolutely sure this is the right treatment for you, therefore is completely free.
Take your first step towards a happy dentist appointment that will keep you calm and fearless when returning for your next one.

After Sedation

We will inform your driver of the procedure, follow up instructions and care because you may forget what we told you. We suggest someone to be with you for a minimum of 12 hours during the full recovery time. You should stay on a ground floor, avoiding stairs. Again, as with before your sedation, we will provide you with a more detailed instruction process to follow afterwards if you choose the sedation option. If you have questions about your condition, notify us at Franklin Dental immediately so we can take care of your concerns.

Do you have hyper sensitive teeth and an overly responsive gag reflex? These are two signs you might want to consider sedation.
