Dental sedation Edmonton
Discover the benefits of dental sedation in Edmonton when you continue to explore the resources online at South Central Dentistry. We understand that dental anxiety is a very real experience for most people visiting their dentist. We resolve to improve your comfort level and reduce stress when you need to come in for a checkup, cleaning, root canal, or any other treatment or procedure at South Central Dentistry. There’s no reason to feel fearful of your next visit to our office- we are pleased to offer sedation for patients of all ages.
Which Type of Sedation is Right For Me?
At South Central Dentistry, we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions for our patients, which is why we offer three types of sedation:
- Nitrous oxide
- Oral sedation
- IV sedation
Speak with our staff over-the-phone or when you come in for your next appointment and we’ll assist you in selecting the sedation option that’s right for you. If you have a fear of needles, oral sedation or laughing gas may work better for you. We can combine sedation methods to offer you a more relaxed experience.
Is My Fear of the Dentist a Rational Fear?
It may surprise you to learn that an estimated 95% of patients have some degree of fear when it comes to visiting the dentist. Older patients often recall how painful it once was to have dental work performed, while younger patients often develop an unrealistic fear from stories they heard as a child. Whatever the case may be, rest assured, South Central Dentistry is deeply invested in the latest equipment and training for our staff. We practice painless dentistry, coupled with the best dental sedation in Edmonton for a truly pain-free visit every time you see us.
New Technology at SCD
We keep patients smiling at South Central Dentistry with plate-less imaging using Extra-Oral Photography; instead of a mouth-full of imaging appliances, simply smile for the camera. Our Intra-Oral camera allows us to provide chair-side consultations to patients, so that together, we can observe issues with your teeth and come up with mutually-agreeable resolutions to tooth decay, bite problems, and other matters. Our staff uses vision magnification optical loupes equipped with LED lights to improve diagnostics and procedure outcomes.
