Sedation Dentistry in Grande Prairie
Do you, or someone you know, have anxiety about going to the dentist?
Just over 30% of the population has “Dental Phobia” or dental anxieties and is the number one reason people like you and me avoid necessary routine dental care, potentially compromising the health of your smile!
At Generations Dental we offer several anxiety-free sedation dentistry options, so you can come in for your regular health checks and cleaning, as well as any potential dental procedure or treatment you may need.
The first type of oral anxiety-free sedation is nitrous oxide, sometimes known as “laughing gas”. At Generations Dental, we often use this for patients who have just a little anxiety about coming to the dentist and would like to have a happy experience. We recommend using nitrous oxide with children, especially in the first 2-3 visits, to help them have a comfortable and positive dental experience. This allows them to have their regular exam and cleaning with ease.
The second type of oral anxiety-free sedation is sedative drugs in pill or liquid form. Proper use of this oral sedation is perfectly safe and straightforward. Please ensure you have a driver for your appointment and that you follow the prescription given to you by our dentists.
At Generations Dental in Grande Prairie, we strive to give you the most positive experience and if there is anything we can do for you please do not hesitate to ask. Call our office today at 587-803-4406 or make an appointment online.
