Sedation Dentistry

Minimal and Oral sedation are different types of sedation offered at our clinic, and are beneficial during complex procedures.

Our Team works in collaberation with a Dental Anestheologist to provide our patients with the option of being completely asleep using General Anesthesia
For those who have high level of fear large treatment plans or are difficult to freeze.

Benefits of sedation dentistry include:

  • Patient comfort and relaxation
  • Movement control
  • Control of gag reflex
  • Time saving - fewer dental visits needed

Different types of sedation:

Minimal sedation

Minimal sedation involves the use of Nitrous Oxide, known as laughing gas. The patient is completely conscious, but has a pleasant, relaxed feeling.

Oral Sedation

This is a light sedation, where you are also awake but may not remember the details of the dental procedure. Pills are prescribed to relieve anxiety before your dental appointment.

Are you a candidate for sedation dentistry?

Almost anyone — adult, teen or child — is a candidate for sedation dentistry. It’s particularly useful for people with a fear of dental visits, or people with a history of anxiety/panicking, but it’s also preferred by people who would simply rather not be “aware” during a procedure.
