To learn if sedation dentistry could be of benefit to you, call (403) 278-1415 and schedule a consultation at our Calgary office today. There are many reasons people look to sedation during dental procedures.
Some of the most common are:
- Dental phobia
- Anxiety revolving around medical procedures
- A dislike of the sights, smells, or sounds of dental offices
- A fear of needles or medical instruments
Fear and anxiety regarding medical procedures in general or dental treatments in particular can stem from any number of previous experiences. Sedation dentistry is often a gentle and effective way to deal with these emotional discomforts, enabling you to enjoy the benefits of dental services without the fear or anxiety that may accompany them.
In addition to assisting with anxiety and fear, sedation dentistry may be of benefit if you have:
- An overactive gag reflex
- Sensitive teeth
- Difficulties getting numb
- General restlessness
There are a number of conditions – both physical and emotional – that can make sedation beneficial prior to your treatment. Dr. Silver can discuss these in detail during your initial consultation to help you determine if sedation dentistry is a good solution for your needs.
