Sedation Dentistry in Toronto
Do you feel anxiety about going to the dentist, or fear that you’ll experience pain? You’re not alone. About 70% of people experience anxiety about their dental visit, resulting in many people choosing not to see their dentist until their situation becomes an emergency. We want our patients to feel safe and secure about caring for their oral health, which is why we offer sedation dentistry.
Reasons For Sedation Dentistry
There are many reasons you might want to use one of our sedation options. Either you’re going in for an oral surgery and require general anaesthesia, or you feel a lot of anxiety and need a prescription to calm your nerves. People also use sedation dentistry if they have an overactive gag reflex, find it hard to keep their mouth open, might experience pain, or have trouble getting numb.
Your Sedation Options
Depending on your situation and treatment, your dentist will recommend some sedation options for you. If you choose to sleep during your procedure, you will wake up with no memory of the procedure. Awake sedation will leave you feeling calm and content. After treatment you may feel drowsy and in need of a nap, so make sure a friend is with you to take you home. During any sedation, our dentists will be right there with you and you’ll always be in a safe, kind, and expert environment.
