Sedation Dentistry Saskatoon
People don’t go to dentists for several reasons. It could be because of the cost, or some patients experience dental anxiety. Studies indicate that millions of people don’t get the necessary dental care due to the fear of syringes, anesthesia, mouth mirror, sickle probe, scaler, saliva ejector, suction device, dental drill, and molds.
Our Saskatoon dentists specialize in sedation dentistry that can turn your anxiety into peace of mind. Our office is inviting and comfortable. Our team is accommodating, too. Every dentist is eager to welcome patients with joy and commitment.
Pedodontics deals with the prevention & treatment of diseases in children’s oral health. Orthodontics, on the other hand, focuses on the treatment, prevention, & correction of malposition of the jaws and teeth. Geriatric dentistry involves providing dental care to senior citizens. It focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral problems in the elderly. Sedation dentistry, on the other hand, is the use of medication to dull sensation and reduce anxiety. From IV sedation to nitrous oxide gas, we accommodate different levels of dental anxiety. During sedation, patients stay awake and alert. They can even talk to our Saskatoon dentists.
Nitrous Oxide is the most popular option for those who want to relax while dental treatment is ongoing. Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is non-invasive and safe. We recommend this type of sedation to those with mild anxiety. Lingering grogginess is a common side effect associated with sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide, however, is far different. There are no potential risks. We also advise patients to resume their normal routine after the procedure.
Are you searching for a stronger type of sedation? Don’t look further than our oral conscious dentistry. We provide prescription medication for patients to take before the appointment to help them feel calm and relaxed.
Reserved for those who suffer from serious anxiety, we use anxiolytics in oral sedation. Similar to Nitrous Oxide, it is safe and non-invasive. But make sure to ask a relative or friend for a comfortable ride.
A technique of providing analgesia, IV Sedation, is used during an implant, tooth extraction, and other painful dental procedures. It involves the use of intravenous injection of a sedative that makes a person drowsy and unaware of pain. We recommend IV sedation when clients have odontophobia. Aside from a licensed dentist, we partner with qualified anesthesiologists to allow patients to sleep throughout the procedure without worries. Then, let a close friend drive you home.
We understand the fear patients experience during dental operations. So, we may combine oral sedation and nitrous oxide when the need arises. We want to guarantee everyone to have a pain-free experience without compromising safety. We seek the professional service of anesthesiologists and other specialists to avoid serious complications.
