Dread going to the dentist? We understand. In fact, dental anxiety is fairly common among our patients. After visiting the office of Woodcreek Dental Care, a full-service dental clinic in SW Calgary, including sedation dentistry, our patients significantly decrease their anxiety.
Our Calgary dentists and staff work to alleviate your fears and anxiety. In addition to a team that is friendly and comforting, Dr. Hartley, a general dentist, has provided sedation dentistry for over 35 years to in Calgary.
Nitrous oxide or oral sedation are satisfactory for some patients, but if you get overly anxious or have genuine fears or phobias about dental care, or have an increased response to pain, we are happy to provide you with IV sedation dentistry. You will wake up with no recollection of your appointment.
Why Use Sedation?
When people suffer from anxiety about pain, needles, or any kind of dental work, it makes going to the dentist a challenge. Sometimes patients have phobias that cause the kind of panic and terror that cannot be overcome by willpower alone.
We provide the option of sedation or sleep dentistry at our Calgary dental clinic because it is risky to delay having dental work done for any reason. Our goal is to deliver the care you need in a relaxed, non-threatening environment.
How Sedation Dentistry Works
We offer different types and levels of sedation, and we always work with you to determine what your specific needs are.
For some of our Calgary patients, a prescription for a mild oral sedative taken before the procedure is enough to help them deal with mild anxiety. Together with a local anesthetic to numb the tooth, you will remain relaxed, comfortable, and in control of your movements.
