Sedation Dentistry

Many patients who have fears of the dentist or experience dental anxiety put off or postpone treatment. The anxiety you experience can stem from a negative experience in the past, a fear of needles or nervousness triggered by the smells in a doctor’s office.

We provide sedation dentistry in Kelowna to relieve your dental anxiety. However, sedation can be beneficial to patients who have a strong gag reflex or would like to receive multiple procedures in one visit. The sedation will not only relieve discomfort and pain, but it will also give our patients a relaxing experience.

The medications we use have a sedative effect, they also have some degree of amnesic effect, patients usually remember little or nothing about their dental appointment.

Please inform our dentist of your medical history, current medication, allergies, and any other information that could affect your sedation intake.

When you visit our office you will be given a pill. Next, you will relax into a comfortable chair with a cozy blanket while one of our dental professionals monitors your progress. After you are comfortable, our experienced team will take care of your dental needs. When you awake, you will be accompanied home by a friend or family member to relax in the comfort of your own home.

If you are interested in receiving dental sedation near you, please arrange a ride to and from our office. Our dentist recommends patients rest after their appointment to recover from the effects of sedation.
