Relax With Us!
Nervous about Dentistry? Well you shouldn’t be! Neglecting your dental care can lead to serious problems with your oral health. If anxiety has caused you to forgo a trip to the dentist, we invite you to contact us and discuss how Sedation Dentistry in Brampton can help you to feel more comfortable during your dental visit.
Sedation dentistry is a very effective solution for people who experience anxiety prior to and during their dental visits. Sedation dentistry does not put you to sleep. It induces a sense of deep relaxation that enables you to feel comfortable while we carry out our work.
Given the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums to your overall health, it is imperative that you find a way to overcome your fears. Luckily, we can help. If you are a little apprehensive about visiting us, you will be happy to know that we offer nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas. In most cases, sedation allows us to complete your work in one visit.
There are several reasons why you may choose sedation for yourself for a family member, including:
- Dental anxiety
- Pronounced gag reflex
- Allergies to local anesthesia or difficulty numbing
- Difficulty cooperating in the dental chair
- Desired treatment is lengthy
Conscious sedation options include nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation. With these options you normally remain awake during the procedure. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral sedation will be appropriate depending on the severity your anxiety. To learn more about what type of sedation is right for you, schedule a consultation.
During conscious sedation, medication is used to help ease anxiety. Depending on the level of sedation, you can be lightly relaxed, or you can be sedated to the edge of consciousness where you will not be aware of much of the procedure and sights, sounds and smells will be toned out.
Our ultimate goal is to enable our patients to receive dental treatment in a comfortable state of mind. To learn more about reducing your anxiety at your next dental appointment, please feel free to ask us. 519-669-1577
