Sedation Dentistry in North York

Sedation Dentistry Near You

Time spent in the dental chair can be anxiety-inducing and incredibly difficult for some patients. The sensations, noises, and tools moving in and out of the mouth are not always pleasant, and for some people, sitting still for a long period of time is not realistic. We are pleased to offer sedation dentistry in North York to these patients, providing them with a relaxed and stress-free procedure that alleviates the negative aspects of treatment. Contact us if you’re looking for sedation dentistry near you.

What Should I Expect?

Sedation is used by dentists for several reasons. Sedation can:

  • Alleviate pain and anxiety during the procedure
  • Reduce a patient’s awareness of the length of time spent in the chair
  • Reduce the experience of sensations such as sounds and smells
  • Reduce the memories associated with the procedure

The sedation we offer is known as “conscious sedation,” which means patients are still somewhat responsive to their surroundings. Our practice is licensed by the Canadian Dental Association to deliver sedation to patients.

IV Sedation Dentistry

IV sedation is delivered intravenously (into the veins). Although you’ll feel extremely relaxed and sleepy, you will not be fully unconscious. Patients receiving IV sedation will need to arrange for a ride home after an appointment.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Sometimes referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is often chosen for mild to moderate sedation. It is easy to provide for children and wears off very quickly, allowing you to return to your day right after your appointment.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is delivered via a pill that is swallowed. We will provide you with the medication before your appointment, as well as instructions about how and when to take it. Patients receiving oral sedation will need to arrange for a ride home after an appointment.
