For some people, a trip to the dentist is no more worrisome than a visit to the doctor, however, for many, it is a fearful encounter that is very difficult to overcome. If fear of the dentist chair has kept you from getting dental care that you need, you should know there are options available at East Village Dental that will ensure your peace of mind and comfort while you receive dental care. We are proud to be a sedation dentist in Calgary, offering two affordable options in sedation.
Anxiety and fear can keep many people from being able to physically and emotionally undergo the procedures necessary to maintain good oral health. More and more dentists are beginning to recognize the need for a sedation dentist in Calgary and other areas. If you’re among the percentage of the population who experiences high levels of anxiety just thinking about a visit to the dentist, our staff at East Village Dental can ensure you are very relaxed and comfortable before we undertake treatment.
Consider just a few of the top benefits of choosing a dental provider who offers sedation before treatment:
Your dentist can perform therapy for a more extended period once you are comfortably sedated during treatment. That means the dental staff can perform multiple procedures in a single office visit, often saving the patient money while minimizing the amount of time needed to sit through treatment.
For some, it’s not so much the anticipation of dental pain that keeps them from relaxing at the dentist’s office; it’s more about an association with a previous adverse experience, such as smells, sounds, or sights that come with visiting the dentist. Noises of the drill, bright lights, and antiseptic odor that are exclusive to the dental practice can bring about intense fears and anxieties. Sedatives can help you cope with all of these as well.
Ask our staff at East Village Dental about sedation to block out the uncomfortable memories during your visit. We’ll help you choose the right type of sedation to meet your needs. Unless you opt for general anesthesia for a complicated procedure, you’ll be awake and able to respond to the dentist’s requests. Without the negative memories associated with your visit, you’ll be more likely to schedule an appointment for any subsequent work you may need.
Your choice in a sedation dentist in Calgary is key to receiving quality dental care in a relaxed atmosphere. Reach out to us by phone or through our online contact form and let us know how we can help you overcome your fears of seeing the dentist.

Choosing sedation during your office visit, you’ll remain relaxed and very comfortable throughout the entire procedure, from the moment you arrive until it’s time to go home.
