Why consider sedation dentistry?
Consider the following questions:
- Do you suffer from dental anxiety?
- Do you have a strong gag reflex?
- Do you dislike long, involved appointments?
- Do you have a dislike for the process of dentistry?
If you answer yes to any of these, then IV sedation is a great option for you!
At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, we provide both IV sedation and oral conscious sedation to our patients who want to reduce their dental fear.
Types of Sedation Dentistry
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, which 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.
IV sedation is a much safer way of getting necessary work completed rather than fighting through it. A full 75% of medical emergencies in dental offices are due to anxiety, so let us help ease your mind with our sedation dentistry options.
For those with severe anxiety, IV sedation is a great way to help you get the dental care you need!
Oral conscious sedation is a simple way to achieve a less-stressed state before and during your dental visit. If you are just anxious, Dr. Malfair can prescribe you an anti-anxiety medication that can be taken shortly before your appointment and can help you relax.
For clients with more moderate levels of anxiety, oral sedatives will be given periodically throughout your appointment to soothe your nerves so that you can sit back and rest easy throughout your procedure. Very anxious people will usually require IV sedation.
