Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to provide a wide array of dental treatments for patients who require multiple procedures, complex procedures, have a medical condition which interferes with their ability to receive care, or experience anxiety while in the dental chair.
We offer safe, comfortable sedation dentistry for patients of all ages. Sedation dentistry for children may be especially helpful for those with a strong gag reflex, or children who have a difficult time sitting still for longer periods of time.
Your sedation dentist will discuss which type of conscious sedation dentistry will be best suited for your needs during your consultation. We offer sedation dentistry drugs in the form of nitrous oxide(laughing gas), oral sedation in the form of a pill to be taken about one hour prior to your procedure and IV sedation which is administered intravenously. Your sedation dentist along with our staff will monitor your blood pressure, breathing and heart rate to ensure your safety at all times.
Sedation dentistry side effects may include a foggy memory of the procedure and a temporary unawareness of time. For example, a complex procedure that may have taken hours to complete may feel like only minutes.
Depending on the procedure and the type of dental sedation used, sedation dentistry costs may vary. During your consultation with our sedation dentist, he/she will explain dental sedation prices and answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you are in need of dental treatment and are fearful or otherwise unable to receive the dental care you need, call (519) 824-2966 today to find out if sleep dentistry is right for you.
