Dental sedation helps some patients feel more comfortable during long procedures and can calm anxious patients. Our dentists at Aspen Dental can help you decide whether oral sedation is right for you.
With dental sedation, we can use a variety of techniques to help patients feel more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists in Moose Jaw can help you decide whether dental sedation is right for your circumstances.
At Aspen Dental, our team does everything we can to help patients relax and feel comfortable when they come in for dental appointments. Along with offering oral sedation, we are committed to working at your pace, taking breaks when you need them, and offering calm reassurance as needed.
If you get anxious before visiting the dentist, not to worry - you are among many. In fact, even those who see the dentist regularly still often feel anxious about going.
We may recommend oral conscious sedation for patients who feel significantly nervous or anxious about dental procedures, who need complex treatment, have a severe gag reflex, or who have time constraints.
Oral sedatives are medication in liquid or pill form that you'll take orally before a dental appointment. Oral sedation will be prescribed by your dentist. While you will be awake for the procedure, its calming effect will trigger a relaxed feeling.
