What is Sedation Dentistry?


Sedation dentistry can help the patients who are very nervous and anxious about den-tistry. Does the dental treatment or dentist appointment make you nervous? Sedation dentistry can be a great option for anyone who suffers from dental anxiety.If you need sedation dentistry, Oral sedative, either small pill or liquid is given to make you relax and put you at ease. Usually it takes effect very quickly. Results vary from one patient to another but patients often have little to no memory of the procedure.

Unlike general anesthesia, sedation dentistry involves patients breathing on their own and even being slightly aware and awake while feeling a sense of calm and comfort.

Side effects are few and vary between patients, some patients report feeling very thirsty after the procedure. Additionally, we recommend no driving for hours after sedation. A friend or family member should drive you to and from your appointment to ensure your safety.

Sedation dentistry can help you to achieve your goal and have the beautiful smile that you always dreamed of without fear of dentistry. If you are concerned about your up-coming visit to the dentist, Sedation dentistry might be the best option. We would love the opportunity to discuss your sedation dentistry options to ensure a comfortable, anx-iety-free dental experience.

It is customized to your health, treatment, and level of fear.Treatments from simple cleanings to full mouth restorations can be completed while you are mildly sedated.

You can wake to a beautiful new smile that you always wished for! You will be relaxed and rested, have almost no memory of your dental treatment, and have a gorgeous new smile.

Many people fear going to the dentist in Vancouver and Burnaby area. Sometimes due to a prior traumatic experience at the dentist. Fear of dentistry and Dental phobic pa-tients tend to hold off going to their dentist altogether, and as result, their oral health suffers. People who have a dental phobia will usually wait until they have pain or an emergency to go to the dentist, which may be too late to save teeth!

Common Questions


What is Inhalation Sedation?

With inhalation sedation dentistry, your dentist will have you breathe in nitrous ox-ide(laughing gas) prior and during your dental procedure. Nitrous oxide can be safely used for short periods of time. Nitrous oxide works very rapidly. Relaxation and pain-killing effects develop within few minutes. If you have difficulty breathing through your nose, inhalation sedation dentistry might not be the right form of sleep sedation dentistry for you.

What is Oral Sedation?

This is one of the most common form of Sedation dentistry. With oral sedation, your dentist give you the sedative in the form of a pill or liquid. The effects of these medications act to primarily relieve anxiety. Its safe and effective with very little to no side effect.

What is IV Sedation?

This is another way of sedation dentistry. With IV sedation dentistry, you receive the medication directly into your vein. The three main effects of medications are that they reduce anxiety, they make you sleepy, and they produce partial or total amnesia. In general, IV sedition dentistry medications are safe and effective in the short term. IV sedation dentistry is more rapid than with oral sedation. The maxi-mum level of sedation can be achieved with IV sedation.

What is General Anesthesia?

For the very high anxiety patient or rare medical conditions, you will receive med-ications that will cause you to be close to completely unconscious and in a very deep sleep while the procedure is being performed.
