dont let fear of the dentist compromise your oral health

If you have claustrophobia, you avoid enclosed spaces. If you have arachnophobia, you stay away from spiders. Fair enough! But if you fear the dentist you may be inclined to avoid checkups. At Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin, we know this is a bad idea.

The connection between your dental health and overall health is by now well-established. Skipping regular checkups due to fear, or any other reason, puts your general health at risk, too.

Help Is Here

A solution that works is sedation dentistry. We offer oral conscious sedation.

Oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative an hour or so before your appointment. It won’t put you out, but it will make you very groggy. You can expect to be only minimally aware of your surroundings. Most importantly, you won’t be aware of any pain.

It takes a while for the effects to wear off. You will need to have someone escort you to and from our office.

Sedation dentistry from Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin has allowed countless patients to get the treatment they deserve. We offer complete general dentistry services. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
