Sedation Dentistry in Calgary

Many people experience anxiety during a visit to the dentist. In extreme cases, the anxiety can be so severe it prevents people from seeking dental care.

Sedation dentistry can help. We can provide you with a mild to moderate sedative before your treatment to help you manage your anxiety and stay calm during your appointment.

Oral Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is an excellent option for anxious patients. We can prescribe an oral sedative that you take prior to your appointment. The sedative will help you enter a relaxed and calm state of mind. You will be only slightly aware of your dental treatment and will not experience any pain. The sedative effect may last for some time after your appointment so you need to arrange transportation home.

Oral sedatives produce a moderate level of sedation. Most patients are unaware of their treatment and have very little retained memory. The sedative effect can take some time to wear off, however, and you will require a drive home from our office.

Nitrous Oxide

Known more commonly as laughing gas, nitrous oxide has been used as a dental sedative for over 100 years. It produces a mild state of relaxation that helps you stay calm during your treatment. The effects wear off very quickly, and you will be able to drive home after your appointment.
