Our Vancouver dentists use dental sedation to help make long or complex dental procedures as comfortable as possible for our patients.
What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you.
At Broadway Station Dental Centre, we attempt to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments.
In addition to offering sedation options, we give our patients the opportunity to set the pace and request breaks when they need them, and provide calm reassurance throughout the process.
IV sedatives are administered directly into the blood stream through the vein for the deepest level of sedation without general anesthesia. Our dental team will attach you to a monitor so that the dentist can keep track of vital signs during the procedure.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. It leaves you awake for the procedure, but produces a calming effect to significantly relax you.
