Ease Your Fear with Sedation Dentistry at Medora Dental Care
If the thought of setting foot in the dentist’s office makes you nervous, consider sedation dentistry. This option is an excellent way to maintain your oral health with regular checkups while leaving anxiety attacks at the door.
Choose Pain-Free Procedures with Sedation Dentistry
When asked what makes them afraid of going to the dentist, many of our Abbotsford patients say pain. After all, who wouldn’t assume a tooth extraction has to be painful? With sedation dentistry, however, you can virtually eliminate the chances of feeling any pain, no matter what procedure you need. Most patients we treat at Medora Dental Care report feeling no discomfort during their visit, and many of them barely remember the procedure at all. In addition to minimizing pain, sedation dentistry also reduces gag reflexes and decreases the patient’s ability to smell, taste, or hear for much of the procedure.
What Are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?
Besides pain, sedation dentistry boasts several more benefits.
For one, a sedated patient is easier and safer to treat than one who moves around throughout the procedure. In this way, sedation dentistry minimizes the amount of time your Abbotsford dentist visit will take. Medora Dental Care patients also experience very few side effects of sedation and can choose from sedatives in pill form to avoid ones requiring needles.
What Kinds of Sedatives Are Available?
Here at Medora Dental, we offer both nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. Different levels of sedation can be utilized depending on individual needs.
