A Gentle Approach

Oral sedation is one of the available methods of conscious sedation dentistry offered by Woodcreek Dental Care in Calgary. The medication will also help to reduce patient awareness of the sights or scents of the dental office to avoid recall of any trauma. The other advantages of oral sedation are:

  • Easily administered
  • No needles involved
  • High patient acceptance

IV sedation, also called intravenous sedation, allows for the patient to be sedated by inserting an IV into the blood stream. This effective alternative to traditional pain management allows patients to comfortably sleep through a difficult procedure, and has several other advantages which include:

  • Deep relaxation
  • Tailored dosage and sedation level
  • Diminished gag reflex

Safe Sedation

Both oral and IV sedation are used for many medical procedures. These sedation techniques are extremely safe, as well as pleasant for our patients. Dr. Hartley is licensed by the Alberta Dental Association to be a Calgary sedation dentist. Additionally, he and his staff are equipped with top-of-the-line monitoring technology that will put your mind at ease.

Recommended for Anyone Uncomfortable with a Dentist Visit
I am not a person that will visit a dentist unless I have to. In my case I did. I want to say that I was not belittled or made to feel uncomfortable for my choices in regards to dental work. They were very pleasant and willing to look at all options in my dental care. All options were clearly explained along with the pros and cons of each along with the cost benefits for each. I would highly recommend this practice for anyone who is extremely uncomfortable with a dentist.

I went with the IV sedation and was extremely happy with the work that was provided; I am writing this the day after my procedure – which was extensive. I have no pain and I can tell that great care was taken even though I was completely sedated during the procedure. Two Thumbs Up!!
