Dental anxiety affects many Canadians and it can prevent you from getting necessary dental care. Sedation or sleep dentistry can help. We provide several options to meet your needs.
Please note that all sedatives will impair your ability to drive. You will need a drive home from our office and you should arrange to have someone care for you for 24 hours after your appointment.
Oral sedation is good for mild to moderate anxiety. We can prescribe medication that you would take prior to your appointment with us.
Intravenous sedation provides a high level of sleep-like relaxation. It is administered in our office. Under IV sedation, you will not be aware of the dental treatment.
Nitrous oxide is the traditional “laughing gas” sedative that has been used in dentistry for over a century. It is fast-acting, and it wears off quickly.
If you are anxious about your visit, please contact us. We’ll help you decide on the sedative option that works for you.
