Get Help Overcoming Your Anxiety At Sedation Dentists Calgary
We know that many people find visiting the dentist a stressful experience. The thought of dental treatments can fill you with anxiety, and memories of past bad experiences at other dental surgeries can put you off getting the dental treatment you really need.
Here at ADx Dental, we’re a qualified dental sedation clinic with a team that understands these concerns. So we do all we can to make our dental practice a warm and welcoming place, and our dental procedures as pain and stress-free as possible.
At our dentists Calgary sedation is available for long or more complex dental treatments. We offer various types of sedation, ranging from oral to IV sedation. When considering the suitability of sedation dentistry (also known as Sleep Dentistry), Dr Tran will carefully consider the effects of the different forms of sedation:
ORAL SEDATION – this comes in a pill form, so is easy to administer. It puts the patient in a relaxed state while they are still conscious, and is ideal if you fear needles.
NITROUS SEDATION – this is also known as laughing gas and is a good way to quickly reduce anxiety and the gag reflex. You’ll remain conscious and aware under this type of sedation.
IV SEDATION – an IV is inserted into the back of your hand and an anti-anxiety sedative is administered. The effects are quick and will send you into a deep state of conscious relaxation.
