Nearly 50% of the population feels nervous or uncomfortable about going to the dentist or having dental procedures done. Often, fearful patients forgo necessary dental care to avoid getting the dental care they need to maintain a healthy smile.
We offer oral sedation, IV sedation and nitrous oxide to alleviate anxiety and face dental appointments with confidence.
If you feel that sedation is necessary for your dental care, give us a call to learn more about our sedation dentistry.
How You May Feel After Sedation
At Global Dental Centre we understand the importance of helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures.
With Oral Conscious Sedation, one pill is taken one hour before your appointment so you can relax or sleep through your visit. With oral sedation we can often complete all your dentistry in one visit. The pill stays in a patient’s system for several hours after the appointment, so there are few complaints of pain after procedures are completed.
How You May Feel
Most patients remember nothing about their treatment. A few will remember a little, usually at the end of the appointment when we are getting them ready to go home. You will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your sedation appointment and you MUST have someone take you home afterwards.
Safety of Sedation
During IV sedation, we use monitoring equipment to monitor your pulse and blood pressure. You’ll be done before you know it, completely unaware of the time passing, totally relaxed.
