A nationwide telephone study involving over one thousand Canadians revealed that nearly 10% of them had some type of fear or anxiety associated with going to the dentist. That means 1 in 10 Canadians have some form of dental fear. If you’re someone who falls into the 10% category, don’t stress – treatment is available.

What is IV Sedation?
IV sedation dental services in northwest Calgary are perfect for you if you find yourself a bit squeamish at the thought of visiting the dentist. IV (intravenous) sedation is a system where the dental patient is placed in a drowsy state through a blend of pharmaceuticals administered via an I.V.
Sedated patients can still maintain cognitive function. They can sustain an active airway and reply to physical stimulation, as well as verbal instructions.
IV Sedation Services in Calgary
Used for patients who are worried, tense, or anxious, IV sedation helps to calm you if you’re ill at ease about your dental visit. When you have been sedated, the anxiousness is no longer an issue as your nerves settle and a sense of drowsiness replaces your once worrisome emotions.
The pharmaceuticals not only provide a calm and relaxed feeling, but a strong sense of pleasantness and comfortability also become prominent. With a price of $685.00; IV sedation is not included in the cost of your dental appointment. However, there are insurance companies that may pay for a portion of the fee.

Sometimes – despite your best efforts – your natural teeth just aren’t able to hold up. They can become chipped, cracked, or damaged. And when this happens, dental bridges can be of tremendous value. Also referred to as ‘fixed bridges’, dental bridges are great for replacing broken or missing teeth.
This is done by a bridge that’s securely fastened in position by crowning the healthy, abutting teeth on either side of the missing, chipped, or broken tooth.
Root Canal Treatment
If a tooth nerve is infected, instead of pulling it out, you can get a root canal in order to keep the tooth. You can avoid issues such as bone loss, drifting teeth, and other jaw problems by keeping your tooth. A root canal treatment is a procedure that eliminates infections and preserves teeth.
It begins by removing the infected or dead pulp from your teeth or tooth. The area within the tough coating of each tooth is referred to as the root canal system. When germs gain access to your tooth via cracks or cavities, your tooth may become abscessed.
An abscessed tooth has an infection in the pulp. And if the pulp is infected, it must be taken out. An abscessed tooth can result in pain, inflammation, headaches, and more. And if it isn’t treated properly, major health concerns can present themselves.

And here at Brentwood Dental, we want to help you achieve that smile, so you can feel more confident, outgoing, and live a better quality of life in the process.
