Sedation Dentistry in Edmonton, AB

Sedation Dentistry in Edmonton, AB

One of the most important aspects of dentistry is to ensure that all patients feel comfortable and safe during their procedures. Some patients feel extreme anxiety at the thought of visiting the dentist, and these feelings can interfere with overall oral health. That’s why our dentist near you offers sedation dentistry in Edmonton, AB. Our intravenous (IV) sedation option allows patients to receive the dental treatment they need at Ellerslie Dental Clinic in a manner that helps them feel relaxed and comfortable.

What Is IV Sedation?

IV sedation is used to relax patients during dental procedures and treatments that would otherwise cause them severe anxiety. During IV sedation, Dr. Navjot Sodhi administers an anti-anxiety sedative through the blood (intravenously). This puts patients in a deep state of relaxation while still being responsive. Though IV sedation does not put a patient to sleep, your memory of the procedure might be a little hazy once the sedative wears off.

Benefits of IV Sedation

Patients who feel fear or anxiety about dental treatment tend to avoid it. Unfortunately, allowing these feelings to interfere with necessary oral health procedures can increase the risk of the problem worsening and result in the need for more invasive dental treatment in the future.

Therefore, it’s important to understand the benefits of IV sedation so that your oral health is not compromised by anxiety. Some benefits of IV sedation include:

  • Suitable for most patients
  • Eliminates feelings of pain or discomfort during the procedure
  • Allows for extensive dental treatment to be completed
  • It helps patients with sensitive teeth or strong gag reflex
  • Calms patients with fear of needles and/or shots

Your oral health is important, and there is no reason to avoid necessary dental procedures with Dr. Navjot Sodhi due to anxious feelings. IV sedation with our dentist in Edmonton, AB, will provide the benefits of calm and comfort during dental treatment as well as the benefits of restoring and maintaining your oral health and wellness.

It’s important for patients to understand that medical consent forms are required for IV sedation, as is a family member or friend for transportation. For more information about sedation dentistry near you, including IV sedation, contact our team at Ellerslie Dental Clinic.
