At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin, we know that some patients become nervous when the time comes for another dentist appointment. And that’s why we offer sedation dentistry. We want to be sure that all our patients get the dental care they need.
Millions of people cope with dental anxiety. In some people, it is so bad they skip the dentist altogether. That is a bad idea, because it puts their dental health at risk.
Sedation dentistry relaxes you, so that you’ll feel at ease during your procedure. We use it in addition to the local anesthesia that numbs your teeth and gums as we work on them.
At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS, we use oral conscious sedation. This involves taking a sedative an hour or so before your scheduled procedure. It won’t make you sleep, but it will put you in a deeply relaxed state. Your vital signs are monitored the entire time. There is an amnesic affect, and most patients don’t remember much of the procedure afterward.
