Update as of May 6, 2020
We are pleased to let our patients know that the Alberta Dental Association and College is allowing us to see patients with urgent needs, but they have restrictions and strict guidelines to follow. They recommend we remotely screen our patients first, so please call our office to begin this process, so that we can set up an in-office visit.
Our “New” office hours for this next phase are Monday to Thursday from 9-5, by appointment only. We need to limit the amount of people in the clinic, so you will be asked to meet us at the back entrance of the building with a face covering or mask over your mouth and nose, we will have you use hand sanitizer, and then bring you into your treatment room.
With very limited supplies of PPE, we will have to triage patients based on your level of emergency until more access to PPE comes available. Thank you for your patience and know that your health and safety, as well as our Team’s, is our top priority.
Imagine sleeping your way through your next dental visit, not hearing the noises, and just waking up to a healthy, attractive smile. We can make this wish come true! Dr. Bagley is trained and experienced in delivering stress-free, sedation dental appointments. If you get feelings of anxiety while visiting the dentist or if you are not looking forward to another long visit to complete treatment, sedation dentistry may be the answer for you. We would be happy to set up a sedation dentistry consultation in Canmore for you or anyone you know who may benefit from this service. Schedule your appointment and come see why so many of our patients are no longer scared to have their teeth cleaned and repaired.
Available Kinds of Sedation
We use different kinds of sedation for our patients based on what’s suitable to their dental needs and procedure. They include:
As a commonly prescribed sedative for anxiety, Ativan helps relax a patient. It is an effective oral sedative generally useful for treatments longer than two hours.
Popularly known as the “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that helps relieve anxiety and reduce pain during a dental procedure. It is delivered along with oxygen which helps keep the patient conscious in a sedated state.
Many of our patients have already enjoyed the benefits and comfort of IV sedation dentistry, often ending years of delayed dental care. They have been able to complete many years of neglected dentistry and hygiene therapy in a single visit. Dr. Bagley is highly qualified in this technique of sedation and we use only the most modern and precise drugs and hospital monitoring equipment. Contact us for more details.
Incredibly Impressed of the Service
“Canmore Downtown Dental went absolutely above and beyond for me. I was visiting from BC for a wedding. At the same time, I also managed to require some emergency dental work. I was in a lot of pain! Their office got me in right away, were kind, took care of the issue and the doctor gave me her cell in case anything got worse over the weekend! So incredibly impressed of the service I received as a non-patient. Thank you.”
