Who Benefits From Dental Sedation?

  • Patients with dental anxiety
  • Patients with sensitive teeth
  • Patients with a low pain threshold
  • Patients with an active gag reflex

This list is obviously far from exhaustive. You can ask Dr. Cload if you’re a good candidate for dental sedation dentistry at your initial consultation.

How Sedated Will I Be?

The most common type of dental sedation we practice relies on oral sedation instead of intravenous drugs. About an hour before your dental sedation Dr. Cload will give you a mild sedative. The medication will help to relax you. We will not start any treatment until you are relaxed.

You will need a ride home after your appointment so you will need to arrange a companion.
You will need to take the day off work but you will be Ok to work the following day.
For many patients the big benefit of sedation is you have very little memory or in some cases no memory of the procedures.

What procedures can you use sedation for?

Sedation can be used for any dental procedure. We don't want fear to be an obstacle to receiving the care you want. We have patients who receive sedation for routine dental cleanings all the way to more complex procedures such as veneers and implants..

Again, you shouldn't just assume that your procedure is incompatible with sedation. Dr. Cload is happy to discuss dental sedation with you at your initial consultation.

If you’re a Calgary resident and you think you might be a good candidate for dental sedation, please contact the Southcentre Dental Clinic today.
