At Jagare Ridge dental our main priority is to ensure that our patient’s have the most comfortable visit possible.
Despite all the advances in dentistry there is still a large group of people that have some degree of dental anxiety.
If you are one of these people, do not feel ashamed. Statistics canada estimates that 40% of canadians have some fear of dental procedures.
We don’t want this anxiety to stop you from getting a the oral care that you need.
A safe and proven method to relieve this anxiety is with oral sedation.
HOW DOES SEDATION WORK?
We first start by ensuring that you are a healthy candidate suitable for oral sedation. We may request a medical clearance from your doctor.
We will then ensure that you have someone that will take you to and from your appointment. You will have to show up 1 hour before your appointment at which time a specific dosage of oral sedation is given to you orally. The sedation will take some time to work but should last for the entire day. Patients are still conscious throughout the appointment but drowsy and relaxed.
All sedation dentistry procedures are strictly regulated by the Alberta Dental Associations for your safety.
