Options for Anxious Patients

For some patients, the prospect of dental treatment can be anxiety-inducing. At Penticton Dental, our dentists offer sedation options to help make treatment less stressful for our more anxious patients.


What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedative medications to make treatment more tolerable.

These medications may be administered either by mouth, or more commonly by use of intra-venous administration.

Why do dentists use sedation?

Sedation can make complicated treatment more tolerable for patients that are anxious, difficult to freeze, or have general difficulty in tolerating dental treatment.

Penticton Dental's Sedation Specialist

Dr. Jennifer Neufeld has extensive experience in providing IV sedation to patients in a safe and controlled setting. Sedation can make complicated procedures such as removal of wisdom teeth or implant surgery much more comfortable.

If you have had difficulty with dental treatment in the past, then IV sedation may be a special consideration for you.

With use of IV sedation, Dr. Neufeld is able to accept referrals for removal of impacted wisdom teeth without the added complications of a trip out of town.
