If you have a high level of anxiety when it comes to dental treatments than IV Sedation may be the best option for you. We, at the Pines Dental, offer IV Sedation. This anxiety killer is a safe and extremely effective tool to help make your dental treatment easier on you.
IV Sedation induces a dream like state that makes you less aware of your surroundings. It is truly “Dentistry while you Dream”. Other advantages include: faster recovery compared to sedative pills, as well as, the ability to add medicine directly into the blood stream following more in-depth procedures, which results in less pain afterwards.
Our IV Sedation Provider is Dr. Jon Vanbeek. His compassionate and thorough approach will keep you comfortable and safe while Dr. Pampena performs your dental procedure.
If dentistry stresses you out, ask us about “Dentistry while you Dream” today.
Are You Avoiding Dental Care Due To Fear? Did you know there are alternatives to help you relax? Dr. Pampena offers sedation options to help patients who have anxieties and fears about their teeth or dentistry in general.
Oral Sedation Therapy allows our patients, who would otherwise elect not to see Dr. Pampena, the chance to have their work completed just by taking a small pill. You may be more comfortable to choose to have nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation. Laughing gas is also very effective and safe for children. Finally, for individuals with greater anxiety levels, or for those undergoing more invasive surgeries, we can combine the oral sedative with nitrous oxide for a much more enhanced effect. The stress that occurred with past appointments can now be eliminated. Oral sedation allows you to relax throughout your dental visit. Safe and effective, oral sedation may be used to minimize fear and anxiety and allow you to acquire the dental treatment that you need or desire. Dr. Pampena would be pleased to discuss whether oral sedation is right for you.
Our aim is to completely relax our patients while they are in our office. Your dental visit should be a restorative time for your mind and body. If you don't feel comfortable during treatment, talk to us about ways to help you relax. Modern preventive techniques, advances in anesthesia, nitrous oxide and many new relaxation techniques allow our patients to leave our office feeling better than when they arrived.
Dr. Pampena is one of among the first dentists in Welland to hold a facility permit and be licensed under the Royal College of Dentists and Surgeons of Ontario to provide conscious moderate sedation. Dr. Pampena will listen to your concerns without judgment and make you feel welcome and comfortable. You are invited to arrange a consultation with Dr. Pampena to determine if sedation is right for you. Sedation Is safe and effective and is taken orally about an hour before your appointment to help you relax. You can drift off to sleep and wake to a beautiful new smile, have several treatments completed in just one appointment which allows you to receive the treatment that you've always needed to save your teeth.
