Relax and Get Comfortable with Sedation Dentistry from Sandstone Dental
If visiting the dentist is not your favorite thing or you or someone you know has been putting off dental work due to anxiety about going to visit the dentist, sedation dentistry is a great option.
For those with severe dental anxiety, sedation dentistry can be the difference between accessing dental care and avoiding it altogether. Sandstone Dentals sees many patients for sedation dentistry in Calgary who might never see a dentist at all without sedation.
Sedation Dentistry can help those who:
- Are nervous or anxious about their dental care
- Require a lot of dental work at one time
- Have difficulty getting frozen
- Have a severe gag reflex or are claustrophobic
Our dentists have completed additional training and are certified by the Alberta Dental Association to provide Conscious Sedation to our patients.
Sandstone Dental offers 2 different methods of Conscious Sedation:
Nitrous Oxide Sedation: Commonly called laughing gas, provides light sedation. It is administered by breathing in a mixture of Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen through the nose to help patients relax and remain in a comfortable state during their dental treatment.
Oral Sedation: Provides light to moderate sedation. It is administered by taking one or two pills of a sedation medication to help alleviate the stress or worries one may have with undergoing dental work.
