A common problem that affects Calgarians young and old is a dental phobia. This fear of dentists often leads to putting off annual check ups and can even prevent Canadians from accessing the dental care they need. Fortunately, there’s a solution!
Metro Dental has proudly offered patients sedation dentistry for children and adults in the forms of Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) or oral pills (no IV required!).
Sedatives are medications that both dentists and doctors use to help their patients feel more calm, comfortable, and relaxed. With the help of sedatives, many patients easily overcome their dental anxiety. They are able to book and come in semi-annually for their cleanings and can even sit through more complicated procedures without feeling anxiety or pain.
Our experience and patient-focused approach all work together to provide you and your family with comprehensive dental care while you’re fully awake or in a relaxed, sedated state. Our clinic strives to offer all our patients a safe and comfortable environment — and that includes patients who suffer from dental phobias. Our staff is happy to accommodate your needs, so your visit can be as professional and efficient as possible.
Is Your Fear of Dentists Harming Your Oral Health?
It has been estimated that approximately 50% of Canadians have some reservations about visiting the dentist. These feelings can lead to avoiding regular dental exams and oral hygiene visits. These skipped appointments can then develop into cavities and other painful complications. This isn’t fair to you, and it isn’t necessary. Young children who struggle to sit still, dependents with developmental challenges that make dental clinics frightening, and anyone with a dental phobia still deserves to have respectful, comprehensive dental care. Sedation dentistry can help.
If you or your family have been avoiding the dentist altogether, your dental health will begin to improve with a simple exam at our Calgary NW dental clinic in Harvest Hills. At Metro Dental Care, we recognize that many patients have a fear of dental treatments. We offer sedation dentistry to make your experience as pleasant and anxiety-free as possible.
