If you have claustrophobia, you avoid enclosed spaces. If you have arachnophobia, you stay away from spiders. Fair enough! But if you fear the dentist, you may be inclined to avoid checkups. At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, we know this is a bad idea.
The connection between your dental health and overall health is, by now, well-established. Skipping regular checkups due to fear, or any other reason, puts your general health at risk, too.

A solution that works is sedation dentistry. We offer oral conscious sedation.
Oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative an hour or so before your appointment. It won’t put you out, but it will make you very groggy. You can expect to be only minimally aware of your surroundings: the sights, sounds, and smells of the office. Most importantly, you won’t be aware of any pain.
It’s important to know that it takes a while for the effects to wear off. You will need to have someone escort you to and from our office.
Sedation dentistry from Love Your Smile in Kelowna has allowed countless Canadians to get the treatment they deserve. We offer complete general dentistry services. We serve satisfied patients in Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6. Request an appointment today!
