NW Calgary Dentists at Metro Dental in Harvest Hills are happy to provide patients the option of Sedation Dentistry. Going to the dentist isn’t something that everyone looks forward to – with dental anxiety afflicting many patients – from big burly men to petite teenagers – dental treatment can create fear in even the bravest of people and cause dental treatment to be avoided or left uncompleted.
Metro Dental in Calgary helps patients overcome fear of the dentist or dental treatment by offering Sedation Dentistry to suitable candidates. Sedation Dentistry in Calgary is nothing new; as it has been used by dentists for over forty years to aid nervous patients during dental procedures. Medication is provided to patients to take prior to a dental appointment – inducing a sedated state that renders a patient unable to drive, operate equipment, or sign important documentation. You are considered impaired once you have taken Sedation Meds; so having someone drive you to your dental appointment, pick you up, and stay with you for the rest of the day is imperative.
Sedation Dentistry is a safe, effective, and trusted method of creating a relaxed and calm state in dental patients who would otherwise be white knuckled in the dental chair – or cancelling dental appointments due to overwhelming fear.
