Many patients have anxiety regarding their dental procedure, which is often based on a negative experience. As a result, many patients avoid the surgery, causing their oral health to suffer.
Our Avondale Dental Centre dentists look forward to turning dentistry into a positive experience that complements your healthcare regimen.
Our dentists, Dr Najar, Dr Crum and Dr Nekrutenk, are gentle and compassionate with our patients, both in their dentistry and how they care for patients overall. Developing rapport and building trust is often enough to help anxious patients feel at ease.
If patients need a little help relaxing or have complex treatment plans, sedation dentistry provides a solution and makes it possible for those who have avoided the surgery for years to finally complete treatment for a healthy smile.
Oral Sedation Dentistry
Oral sedation requires medication an hour before the procedure. While conscious, most people report feeling relaxed and have few memories of their experience.
IV Sedation Dentistry
IV sedation makes it possible to adjust the level of sedation throughout the procedure through intravenous delivery. IV sedation works well for lengthy appointments and for people who require a deeper state of relaxation.
For patient safety, we monitor blood pressure and oxygen levels for the duration of the appointment.
Because both oral sedation and IV sedation use long-lasting medications, having someone accompany you home from your appointment is necessary.
A consultation and medical history will help us determine if sedation dentistry is safe for you.
