Sedation Dentistry Described by Ottawa Dental Specialist

By pamelali, in Articles, on July 15, 2010 | Comments (0)

Ottawa, ON – Many adults – up to 30% — experience anxiety about visiting the dentist and would prefer putting up with pain rather than schedule an appointment. However, Dr. Pamela Li, an Ottawa dental specialist, notes that patients can be treated by sedation dentistry – also called oral sedation dentistry, oral conscious sedation, relaxation dentistry, or – less accurately – sleep dentistry.

From cleanings and root canals to complete smile makeovers, we can employ sedation for a wide range of treatments. During your first appointment at our Ottawa ON dental clinic, you will work with us to select the treatment. We will then give you a prescription for a drug such as Valium, Ativan, or Triazolam.

Dr. Li, an Ottawa cosmetic dentistry provider, has gotten expert training in oral sedation from the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS), the biggest oral sedation dentistry continuing education company in North America. She also received certification in sedation from the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.

“We make the patient comfortable with a memory foam chair pad,” explains Dr. Li, an Ottawa dentistry expert. “You wouldn’t believe how relaxed a previously fearful patient can become. It’s as simple as taking some pills and they feel much better.”

You will take your prescription before arriving at our office. A companion will need to drive you to and from your appointment. As the treatment begins, you will become relaxed and maybe sleepy – but most people don’t sleep deeply.

“Although we can’t eliminate fear completely, you’ll experience the treatment in a more relaxed and comfortable way,” says Li, an Ottawa dental implants provider. We will measure you using a pulse oximeter blood pressure monitor. The dentist must be ready – although emergencies are extremely unusual.

When the patient is relaxed, we don’t need many appointments but can get more done in one long visit. Many prescriptions can cause amnesia. “The biggest benefit for most people is that they won’t recall anything,” says Dr. Li, an Ottawa dentist. “You’ll have little or no memory of the treatment. The following day you’ll feel like yourself again – with a newer, more a beautiful smile.”
