Do you experience high levels of anxiety when visiting the dentist? You may be a candidate for Sedation Dentistry. Our dentists are Board Certified to administer (oral conscious) sedation, we also team up with a group of specialist anesthetists to provide intravenous sedation (IV) or general anaesthesia in hospital settings for patients who require complex dental treatment or patients with severe dental phobia. This is commonly referred to as “Sleep Dentistry”.
Advantages to patients include:
- Treatment is completed when you are in a more relaxed mood.
- You will have less difficulty sitting through a lengthy procedure.
- Multiple treatments can occur during the same visit.
Types of sedation depends on the type of treatment required and the level of anxiety you have towards dental treatment.
