Good dental health is important to overall health, but there are some people who would do almost anything rather than sit down for a dentist appointment. If anxiety or even phobia keeps you away from regular checkups, sedation dentistry from Love Your Smile in Kelowna can help.
There are lots of reasons why people avoid the dentist. It may stem from a bad childhood experience or a fear of pain. It may be from concerns about X-rays or some other common dental procedure. Whatever it is, don’t put your dental health at risk by never going to the dentist.
Modern dentistry is safe and painless. If you’re concerned about something like X-rays, we can accommodate you. The important thing is to have regular checkups, and to have any dental health issues treated.
We have two types of sedation:
- Oral conscious sedation. You are provided with a prescribed sedative that you take an hour or so before your appointment. (We’ll give you specifics.) It takes a few hours to wear off, and you will need someone to drive you home afterward.
- IV Sedation. This is a stronger form of sedation that is administered in the arm. You won’t sleep, but will be in a deep state of relaxation: so much so that you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
If you have been putting off seeing the dentist because of anxiety or phobia, sedation dentistry from Love Your Smile in Kelowna can help. Patients from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 rely on us for complete general dentistry, and much more. Schedule an appointment with us today!
