If you get anxious about visiting the dentist, know that you are not alone. Here at the Rideau Dental Centre, we have methods of helping patients who get nervous at the dentist. We offer two forms of conscious sedation, oral and IV, which are both great for helping patients relax.
Conscious sedation also allows our dentists to work more efficiently, which can reduce the number of visits to our office that are required for a procedure. Conscious sedation is also normally used during wisdom teeth removal, to help ease pain and make the procedure more pleasant for the patient.
We recommend conscious sedation for patients who have sensitive teeth, a gag reflex, fear of the dentist and/or dental equipment, or complicated dental problems. If you are interested in conscious sedation, we’re happy to help. Feel free to contact us here at the Rideau Dental Centre by calling 613-230-7475.
