At our dentistry in Woodbridge, we understand that anxiety and fear is common for many patients to experience during dental procedures. Our goal is to make your visit with Pine Seven Dental Centre as comfortable, stress free and enjoyable as possible.
By utilizing sedation dentistry, we are able to comfortably sedate our patients who suffer from anxiety and minimize the fear that comes with going to the dentist.
Conscious sedation is one technique we use for sedation dentistry. We use a combination of medicines that allow you to stay awake during dental procedures. One medicine helps you to relax (sedative) and the other helps to block pain (anesthetic).
It is administered in a couple of ways, orally in the form of a pill or intravenously through a vein. You may feel drowsy during this sedation and if you fall asleep, you will be able to wake up easily. Because of the medication used, you may not remember too much about your procedure.
With conscious sedation, the medicines that are used wear off fairly quickly. This means recovery is fast and you’re able to continue on with your regular activities soon after your dental procedure.
Conscious sedation can be used for minor treatments like dental cleanings to more lengthy and complex procedures.
If you suffer from dental anxiety or fear of going to the dentist, our team at Pine Seven Dental Centre is ready to help! Give us a call today and ask about incorporating conscious sedation into your dental procedure.
