Heading to the dentist is not as routine for some individuals as it is for others. In fact, some people can become stricken with fear just at the thought of having their teeth cleaned, never mind a toothache that might require treatment.
That is why DentistsRUs is pleased to offer dental professionals who can provide Sedation Dentistry in the Lower Mainland for their patients. This helps put any phobia of dental treatment to rest – literally!
Sedation Dentistry Explained
Sedation dentistry helps patients relax with various types of sedation during their dental procedure.
I.V. Sedation is often referred to as “being put to sleep” – although patients are technically awake but are simply sedated into a light “twilight sleep”, and feel at ease during the entirety of their treatment.
Who Qualifies for Sedation Dentistry?
Nearly everyone qualifies for sedation dentistry, and offering such a modern approach to dental care can help those with true dental anxiety maintain their oral health.
The only exception is children. Children can sometimes qualify for sedation dentistry, but will be given something much more mild and recommended on a patient-to-patient basis. Often time’s nitrous oxide is used in the case of children, or in some cases children can be given an oral sedation based on the child’s age and weight.
Who Can Administer Sedation?
As mentioned, there are various types of sedation your dental professional can offer, so feel free to call any of our locations below to talk about your options.
