We often overcome most fears associated with the dentist once you meet the team and realize we aren’t here to cause you pain. If the anxiety still persists, there are a series of techniques that we provide to help you have a comfy and relaxing experience during your dental treatments.

A significant number of Canadian citizens don’t visit the dentist for regular checkups because they’re too scared or suffer with dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry offers an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free, dental experience to those who are fearful of the dentist.

Sedation dentistry is commonly misjudged as being a sleep-induced service. In fact, most sedatives permit the patient to stay awake in the process. Sleepiness is an unwanted effect of some medicines, but nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation only work to calm stress throughout the dental visit.

Sedation dentistry is popular because most sedatives can be taken by mouth, meaning no injections, no tension and no discomfort. Some sedatives work so effectively that even the smells and details of the process cannot be recalled thereafter. Safety and compliance are two important facets of treatments, so sedation dentistry offers both the individual and the dentist a safe alternative.
