Sedation Dentistry Near You
Dental anxiety is very common, and when it prevents patients from seeking the dental care they need, it can quickly become a serious problem. At Eagle Creek Dental Centre, we offer sedation dentistry as a way to help our patients feel relaxed and comfortable when they visit our office for dental treatments.
Intravenous (IV) Sedation
IV sedation is administered by a trained dental professional through a small needle that is injected into the patient’s bloodstream. IV sedation causes the patient to feel immediately relaxed and may cause them to be drowsy enough to doze off during their dental procedure.
If a patient opts for oral sedation, our dentist will prescribe them a small pill to take one hour before their dental procedure, which will produce a feeling of calm within the patient. In most cases, the patient will still be responsive and conscious of the procedure but without any feelings of stress or anxiety.
