Many people suffer from the fear of the dentist based on real or imagined experiences and it can adversely affect their oral heath because they tend to avoid treatment and that can cause some serious problems. Orange Family Dental is all about comfort and providing the best care possible. Our goal is to provide the best care possible and that can only happen when you are relaxed and comfortable. If you feel uncomfortable during treatment, speak with us about ways to help you relax. Modern preventive and relaxation techniques including Sedation Dentistry, allow our patients to feel relaxed and pleased to be able to receive the dental care they require with little or no stress!
For an anxiety free appointment, Orange Family Dental offers sedation dentistry which is a special type of care to allow our patients to have a stress free and comfortable visit for longer procedures. This procedure combines the use of oral medication to provide a very stress free, low anxiety treatment appointment. If you have any fear or anxiety about your dental visits, this combination of oral medication would be a procedure you benefit from.
Remember, if you decide to take advantage of this type of treatment, we suggest that you have a driver deliver you and pick you up from your appointment, as the medication can impair your reaction time and alertness. The remainder of your day should be planned to stay home and not drive or operate anything that could cause you harm due to your reaction time which can be affected from 12 to 24 hours.
If you have any questions about oral medication and nitrous oxide, please feel free to speak with any of our Orange Family Dental team members here in Calgary, Alberta today.
