Dentist visits aren't the most fun time for young patients. Some kids even take their fear of the dental office well into adulthood. Young children as well as adults who require major procedures benefit from sedation dentistry in Progressive Dental in Calgary, helping them overcome different kinds of dental procedures with less pain and anxiety.
Sedation Dentistry Calgary
If you are afraid of the dentist or you are simply squeamish about dental procedures, then sedation dentistry in Calgary may be right for you. Dentists understand that each patient is different, and that a lot of people are scared of going to the dentist that they would rather endure a toothache than sit on a dental chair. Sedation dentistry may help relieve some of that anxiety and fear, and it can be applied from anything like tooth cleaning to wisdom tooth extraction and root canals.
The use of sedation dentistry will depend on the severity of your fear and anxiety. It relies on medication to help you relax during a dental procedure. Patients are typically awake, unless they are given a general anaesthetic. Minimal sedation will keep you awake and relaxed, moderate sedation may cause you to slur and not recall much of what occurred, deep sedation keeps you on the edge of consciousness but you can still be awakened, and general anaesthesia renders you completely unconscious.
Sedation may be given through inhalation, oral sedation, an IV. Most dentists use a local anaesthesia to numb the area that needs to be treated. This way, you do not have to worry about painful sensations and discomfort during the procedure. Sedation dentistry in Calgary is safe, adjustable to your needs, and painless as long as you choose the right clinic, like Progressive Dental.
