Being comfortable while you’re at the dentist is one of the most important parts about maintaining your dental health throughout your entire life. If you feel that you can’t visit the dentist because you’re fearful of the pain, or you simply are uncomfortable with some of the sounds and sights of a dental procedure as a patient, then you’re just one of the millions of people that have some level of dental anxiety. It’s not uncommon to worry about your trip to the dentist, but that doesn’t have to hold you back from getting the care that you need.
At Vancouver Smile Studio, sedation dentist Dr. Gallon and all of our team carefully review and expand on some of the many dental sedation options and therapies that are available to our patients in the British Columbia area. Dental sedation can be affordable, which is good news if you’re looking for dental care you can pay for without sacrificing comfort, and it can also be applicable for a wide range of patients with various dental and medical health histories.
Our team is thoroughly trained and certified to handle all of the drugs involved with the sedation procedure, as well as provide proper monitoring of sedation levels throughout the procedure. We also monitor vital signals, and can react quickly in the event of any emergencies.
Before you decide on Vancouver sedation for your next procedure, it’s very important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gallon so that we can review your medical history, whether or not any prescriptions that you’re currently taking will have an adverse reaction with any or all of the above mentioned Vancouver sedation options, as well as for us to determine which regimen will be the most effective for achieving the desired results on your procedure day.
Aside from the pharmaceutical options available, Dr. Gallon also puts a strong emphasis on maintaining a low stress, welcoming, and comfortable environment for all patients, regardless of whether or not they have chosen sedation dentistry services. Our offices and our procedure rooms are all designed to provide low stress environments, which can affect everything from the color of the paint, to any office decorations that you may see, to the way that we approach our actual patient interactions.She is also trained in the hypnosis technique which has proven very effective in making your visits stress-free.
Maintaining a low stress environment is absolutely essential for improving your mood and your willingness to come back for dental care in the future. If you’ve ever thought back to a negative experience with a dentist, chances are that one of the major details that will stick out in your mind are the behavior of your dentist, their office and whether or not it was conducive to relaxation, and the general environment around you. At Vancouver Smile Studio, we do our very best to ensure that every step of the procedure, from your first examination to any follow up care or exams necessary, all promote an image of well being, comfort, and security. We want you to feel as relaxed as possible, whatever your procedure may involve.
