“There are several reasons why some people need to rely on IV sedation dentistry in Kelowna. One of the most prevalent reason is because of a strong gag reflex, where the patient cannot hold his/her position, thereby impeding the dentist from properly performing the procedure. Another case is the patient’s anxiety or deep-seated fear of the dentist, which could stress the patient out, thereby making the procedure difficult, if not impossible, to carry out.
Patients, as well as dentists, must understand that although IV sedation is very beneficial for them, it should only be used after all means of behavioral techniques have been used. Those who still experience nervous or anxious behavior in facing dental procedures should consult a reputable sedation dentist in Kelowna who can administer a combination of safe medications to help them relax.”
