      Comfortable Dental Treatments with Sedation Dentistry

      Feeling Anxious About Dental Visit?

      If the mere thought of going to the dentist causes you unease, worry not, for Lakeview Dental is here to support you. Our safe sedation dentistry services ensure that anxiety doesn't limit your dental check-ups and treatments.

      How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

      Sedation dentistry employs specific medications to help you stay calm and relaxed during dental procedures. Although some people call it "sleep dentistry," patients are typically conscious. Our various offerings include oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, and dental numbing, tailored to each patient's needs in our Kelowna dental clinic.

      Sedation Dentistry

      At Lakeview Dental, we understand how dental anxiety, especially in children, can be overwhelming. Fortunately, sedation dentistry helps manage these fears effectively. Procedures such as tooth fillings or fitting dentures can be completed with complete calmness. Our sedation dentist in Kelowna, Dr. Sigel, ensures this is possible.

      IV Sedation

      Dr. Sigel is committed to delivering top-tier treatment choices. His proficiency in IV sedation, acquired through extra training, places you in a relaxed state, ensuring comfort during extensive procedures like wisdom teeth extraction and dental implant insertion.

      Remember, you’ll need someone to drive you home post-treatment.

      Nitrous Oxide Sedation

      We offer nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” a popular choice to alleviate anxiety during dental treatments. Suitable for both kids and adults, this sedation option ensures you are relaxed yet alert. If necessary, it can be paired with oral sedation for enhanced calmness.

      Oral Sedation

      Oral Sedation involves taking oral medication (typically a benzodiazepine, like Ativan) that your dentist prescribes to you usually one hour before your appointment. Oral sedation will help you feel more relaxed and at ease throughout your dental visit. If you will be taking an oral sedative, you will need a trusted adult to drive you to and from your appointment.

      Why Consider Sedation Dentistry?

      Dental anxiety can often result in delayed or avoided appointments, jeopardizing oral health. Sedation dentistry paves the way for a worry-free and cozy experience, especially for those who find dental visits daunting. It’s also helpful for extended treatments, ensuring patient comfort while enabling efficiency for the dentist.

      The Advantages of Sedation Dentistry

      • Eases dental fears and worries
      • Enables multiple or intricate treatments in one appointment
      • Minimizes pain and unease during treatments
      • Opens doors to dental care for those with severe anxiety or special needs

      The Expense of Sedation Dentistry

      Costs can vary, influenced by the sedation type and procedure length. A discussion with our Kelowna team will provide clarity on suitable options and associated costs, ensuring you’re well-informed.

      Insurance and Sedation Dentistry

      Insurance policies differ; some might cover sedation partially if deemed medically essential, while others might not. Reach out to your insurance firm or our Kelowna dental center for detailed information.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What is the difference between sedation and anesthesia?

      Sedation relaxes patients while they're conscious, whereas anesthesia blocks pain and can make patients unconscious.

      Is Dental Sedation safe?

      Yes, dental sedation is completely safe when handled by professionals.

      Are there side effects of sedation dentistry?

      Side effects of sedation dentistry can include nausea, drowsiness, or dry mouth, but are generally mild and temporary.

      Sedation Dentistry Steps

      Before the Sedation

      We’ll scrutinize your health records and current medications and decide on the optimal sedation technique. Some methods require fasting beforehand, and arranging a ride home is usually required.

      During the Sedation

      You could be in a relaxed state or lightly asleep, with an expert monitoring your vital statistics for ensured safety. The sedation might blur the procedural memories.

      After the Sedation

      You’ll be monitored as the sedation effects diminish. Feeling slightly disoriented is common, hence the need for a ride home.

      Potential Side Effects

      Though generally safe, mild side effects like nausea, drowsiness, or a dry mouth might occur, but are typically brief. At Lakeview Dental, every precaution is in place to mitigate risks and guarantee your comfort and safety.

      A huge thank you to Dr Sigel along with his friendly and professional staff for accommodating my dental emergency - a crown that popped out after I ate the yellow starburst that my daughter doesn’t like. The 1st point here: if you have crowns avoid starbursts candy and anything else that the good Dr Greg Sigel says. The 2nd point - if you do eat a starburst and lose a crown, call Lakeview Dental in Westbank ASAP for great service, reasonable rates and a 5 star experience. Thank you everyone for rescuing our family camping trip!

      Recently moved to Kelowna. After a lot of research, tried Lakeview Dental. The office is bright and clean. Staff are friendly, patient and gentle. I have bad teeth and visit the dentist more than I would prefer, so I have a lot of anxiety around it. I am very comfortable and satisfied with my experience here. They are very accommodating and have many options and methods to help with my anxiety. I was so pleased I also brought my kids here. My 11 year old said it was the best dentist he's been to so far! (He's been to two others, child and adult dentists). I have recommended this dentist and would continue to recommend.

      I can’t rave about this dental office enough! Everything from the atmosphere, the staff, and the dental work! Dr. Sigel and his team are the best ever! I have dental anxiety, him and all his amazing staff made me feel so calm at every appointment I had! I’ve had cleanings all the way to wisdom teeth removal done in office! They answered all my questions and they are all so kind and supportive! My daughter had her first check up here as well and she can’t wait to come back for another! This has been the best switch I have made! I love that there is someone this amazing on the westside!
