Sedation Dentistry Banishes Fears!
We understand that despite the amazing advances in modern dentistry some patients still feel significant anxiety when faced with dental procedures. To ally some of those fears we offer what's called Intravenous Conscious Sedation or IV Sedation Dentistry. Patients remain conscious, but feel no pain and no anxiety. Here's what two of our patients had to say about IV Sedation.
We asked Amanda what motivated her to want IV Sedation.
She said, "I was nervous of what pain was going to be like with the extraction of my wisdom teeth and how long a procedure I would have to go through." And how did she like the overall experience? "Everyone was very friendly and talkative ... and helped me feel safe about the whole procedure. I've already recommended it highly to my friends."
Mary told us her dental anxiety level was a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. And after IV Sedation?
"It's gone down to a 1 out of 10. I was so happy I could get everything done at once with no pain - and I loved that I didn't have to leave Collingwood for IV Sedation to be available."
If you have any questions about IV Sedation, please don't hesitate to call. We want to make sure you have a lifetime of great dental health and beautiful smiles!
