Sedation Dentistry in Kelowna
Our sedation dentistry in Kelowna can make your dental experience an absolute dream! If the idea of visiting the dentist spurs anxious or unpleasant feelings for you, sedation dentistry could be your best bet for better health and a more relaxed dental experience.
At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, we provide both IV sedation and oral conscious sedation to our patients who want to reduce their dental fear. Sedation dentistry can also give you the tolerance you need to undergo more than one procedure in one visit to our office. You can accomplish more and feel better with sedation dentistry!
Types of Sedation Dentistry
IV sedation will make you feel comfortable and relaxed. You will be able to feel the effects quickly and Dr. Malfair has complete control over the amount of medication given as there is no time lag to guess about (this is the main issue with oral sedation methods). This control allows Dr. Malfair to increase your level of sedation safely, quickly and comfortably in accordance with your needs.
If you are delaying getting your teeth fixed because you:
- suffer from dental anxiety
- have a strong gag reflex
- require long, involved appointments
- have a history of not freezing effectively
- have a dislike for the process of dentistry
Then IV sedation is a great option for you!
IV sedation is a much safer way of getting necessary work completed rather than toughing through it as a full 75% of medical emergencies in dental offices are due to anxiety.
IV sedation is a great way to fly!
Oral conscious sedation is a simple way to achieve a stress-free state before, during, and after your dental visit. Dr. Malfair will prescribe to you an anti-anxiety pill that can be taken shortly before your appointment. This oral conscious sedation medication will soothe your nerves so that you can sit back and relax throughout your procedure.
