At Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin, we try to make each dental appointment as stress-free as possible.
But we know that for a certain percentage of our patients, a simple checkup is going to bring on a lot of anxiety, and even fear. In some people it’s so intense they skip going to the dentist altogether. A good solution for such patients is sedation dentistry.
The truth is that millions of people cope with dental anxiety. While never going to the dentist might seem like sensible behaviour, it puts their dental health at risk.
There are lots of reasons why people feel this way. It may stem from a bad dental experience they had as a kid. Fear of pain is a big reason, too, as well as a fear of anesthetics and their possible side effects.
No matter what the reason, sedation dentistry (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless patients get through their appointments, and get the dental care they need.
We offer an extremely effective form of sedation called oral conscious sedation. It involves taking a sedative an hour or so before the appointment. You won’t sleep, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. You’ll need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
There is a clear link between dental health and your overall health. Sedation dentistry from Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin is a perfect solution for people with dental anxiety or phobia. We offer a wide range of general dentistry services. Don’t put your dental health at risk. Schedule an appointment with us today!
