Have you been avoiding getting much needed dental treatment because of the anxiety caused by the thought of a visit to the dentist? At Mission Park Dental in Kelowna, we understand your fears and anxieties. Sedation dentistry has made it possible to provide our patients a way to receive necessary dental treatment in an easy, comfortable and effective way. Being able to re-establish dental health through regular visits with Drs. Linda and Benson Wong has been life changing for many of our patients and is an aspect of our dental practice that is very important to us.

Sedation dentistry can help:

  • Patients who are highly fearful of dental treatment
  • Patients who have a sensitive gag reflex
  • Patients with Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)
  • Patients who are difficult to freeze
  • Patients who need multiple or extended treatments
  • Patients who would like to take the "edge" off of dental anxiety

Conscious oral sedation involves taking medication orally in pill form before your procedure. You will be able to experience your entire procedure in a state of dreamy comfort while still being conscious and able to respond to our dental team. Because you are unaware of the passing of time, even the most complicated procedures can be done in what will seem only a matter of minutes.

Our patient's comfort and safety is always our primary concern. We've had countless hours of training and experience in the science of sedation dentistry and can confidently offer our patients a more comfortable dental experience. Throughout your procedure you will be under the constant supervision of a team member who will be monitoring your vital signs and the level of oxygen in the blood continuously with sophisticated equipment designed especially for this purpose.

Our supportive, caring and compassionate team is here to walk you through each step of this treatment and to answer any questions you may have. It is important to us to create an environment of trust and confidence – this allows us to provide the best care to our patients and ensure that our patients have a great dental experience.
