Sedation Dentistry

* Effective December 2019, Marlborough Dental Centre will be offering Oral Sedation Only.

Sedation Dentistry

Want to take the fear and discomfort out of your next dental visit? We can help with safe and effective sedation dentistry services at Marlborough Dental Centre.

During sedation dentistry, or oral conscious sedation, one of our experienced Calgary dentists will administer a moderate dose of sedative to help you enter a deep state of relaxation before your dental procedure.

This treatment option is especially helpful if you or a family member has a severe fear of going to the dentist, sensitive teeth, a strong gag reflex, or an upcoming procedure that requires lengthy dental work.

We will make your dental experience as comfortable as possible. Contact us today.

How Sedation Dentistry Works

After determining that sedation dentistry is a safe option for you, we’ll give you a sedative pill at the designated time before your treatment.

The sedative will begin to take effect quickly, putting you into a state of deep relaxation and ease. Any anxiety or feelings of discomfort will diminish, and you may even find that you have little or no memory of the actual dental procedure.

Since the sedative is long-lasting, we’ll make sure that you have a responsible adult to take you home and stay with you until the sedative wears off.

Oral Sedation Dentistry Benefits

  • Reduces anxiety and discomfort during your dental procedure
  • Helps you stay still and comfortable through lengthy dental work
  • Eliminates a gag reflex for dental procedures in the back of your mouth
  • Avoids the use of needles to administer your sedative
  • Creates positive associations for your next dental visit—you’ll see that a trip to the dentist really isn’t that bad!

Before and After Sedation Dentistry Care


  • Have a responsible adult drive you to and from the dental clinic.
  • Follow any instructions that we give you regarding fasting and prescription medications before the procedure.
  • Avoid alcohol


  • Make sure that a responsible adult can stay with you for several hours until the sedative wears off.
  • Do not drive or operate any hazardous equipment for the first 24 hours.
  • Drink plenty of water.

Your dental health is important to us, so we want you to be as comfortable as possible during every dental procedure. With sedation dentistry, Dr. Popp and our team of Calgary dentists can help you have a positive and relaxed experience as we treat your teeth.
