Sedation Dentistry From Your Dentist In Abbotsford
If you are one of the millions of people who experience dental anxiety, then you know how important it is to find a dentist who offers sedation dentistry. Oral and IV sedation can make dental treatments and procedures much more comfortable while also ensuring that you receive the dedicated oral care you need to keep your smile – and body! – healthy and strong.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. There are different types and levels of sedation, and at Lifetime Dental at Sevenoaks in Abbotsford, we’re proud to offer our patients IV and oral sedation.
What are the benefits of sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry offers many benefits, both for patients and for dental professionals. Patients who receive IV or oral sedation during their dental procedures often report feeling more relaxed and comfortable during treatment. This can be helpful for those who experience anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist. In addition, sedation can be used to help patients who have a strong gag reflex or who need to receive dental treatment for an extended period of time.
Who is a candidate for sedation dentistry?
Most people are good candidates, however, there are some medical conditions that may make you ineligible for this type of treatment. Rest assured that we’ll review your medical history before making any recommendations and/or administering sedation treatment.
How do oral and IV sedation work?
Oral sedation is typically taken in pill form approximately an hour before a treatment or procedure, and it can help you feel more relaxed during your visit.
IV sedation is administered directly into a patient’s bloodstream and takes effect very quickly.
