Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation, or Sedation Dentistry, involves taking a small amount of mediation that induces a state of profound relaxation. This medication helps to reduce your anxiety during your dental visit. Because you are still conscious (awake), you are still able to ask and respond to questions or directions from your dentist. It also produces an amnesiac effect so you’ll remember very little about your treatment, and leave without unpleasant memories!
Oral conscious sedation is very safe. Our dentists have the advanced training required by the Alberta Dental Association and College to be able to administer this type of sedation in a safe and comfortable environment. To increase the margin of safety, we use specialized equipment to monitor our patients’ vital signs throughout the sedation visit.
This is an excellent solution for patients with anxieties about a visit to the dentist, or for those who are requiring move involved dental treatment. Sedation dentistry can help these patients restore their teeth more quickly, and in less visits!
At Millennium Smile – Crowfoot Dental, we take pain management very seriously. During your treatment, we use highly effective, custom-blended topical numbing gels. We want your visit to our office to be a pleasant experience every time.
