Fear and dental anxiety can make you avoid crucial trips to the dentist, compromising your oral health and even your appearance.
At Enlighten Dental in Vancouver, BC, we offer sedation dentistry so you can receive the treatments you need in a stress-free environment.
Can sedation really help me?
Relax Completely in the Dentist's Chair with Dental Sedation
We offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation at Enlighten Dental. Combined with local anesthetic, dental sedation allows you to receive the treatments you need without pain or discomfort.
Often, dental sedation allows our team to complete your dental work more quickly, reducing the number of visits you need to make to our office.
Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation can eliminate feelings of anxiety during treatment. Some patients even find sedation helps them overcome their fear of the dentist's office completely.
If You Struggle with Dental Anxiety, You Are Not Alone
A Range of Candidates Can Benefit
Very Anxious Patients
Sedation dentistry is a good way to receive the treatments you need without anxiety. Many patients who have had traumatic dental experiences or who have a fear of needles benefit from dental sedation.
Difficulty Staying Still
If you have health issues which make it difficult to control your movements, dental sedation can help. Sedatives are also a good choice for patients who experience discomfort when they still for long periods of time.
Resistance to Anesthesia
If you have had trouble with local anesthetics in the past, sedation can work together with anesthesia to create a more comfortable dental experience.
Patients who suffer from severe dental sensitivity may struggle to undergo even routine cleanings. With nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedatives, you can stay up-to-date on preventive care.
Discuss Your Medical History
If you are considering dental sedation, be sure to disclose your complete medical history to your dentist first. Our team can assess your unique situation and determine which type of medication is right for you.
When Left Untreated, Oral Health Issues Will Worsen
The longer you leave oral health concerns untreated, the more likely they are to spread and cause more damage. If you have postponed dental treatment due to fear or anxiety, sedation can be a good way to get your oral health back on track.
Our team at Enlighten Dental is dedicated to helping our clients achieve optimal health. In addition to offering sedation, we will work closely with you to answer all your concerns and provide any accommodations which can help make your visit more comfortable.
