Sleep dentistry is a term often used in place of sedation dentistry. It implies you will sleep through the procedure. In most cases, conscious sedation is safer and easier for most patients. With sedation, patients can have their dental treatment completed in a more relaxed state, free from stress and anxiety. It also allows the dentist to complete the treatment quicker and easier by focusing on the procedure rather than slowly performing while calming the patient. Oftentimes the patient will simply sleep through the process and relax knowing their smile will be treated without pain or discomfort.

Despite past negative dental experiences or connotations, we will do everything we can to make your appointments as comfortable as possible. Sedation dentistry may be a good option to consider if you relate to the following conditions:

  • Extreme fear of dental work
  • Prior difficult dental experiences
  • Require extensive dental work
  • Strong gag reflex
  • Special needs making it difficult to sit still
  • Challenging time schedules that require large amounts of treatment to be completed in a short time frame
  • Difficulty being frozen using local anaesthetic

Some of the procedures that commonly incorporate sedation include wisdom teeth extractions, implants, gum surgeries, multiple restorations, full mouth reconstruction cases.Our doctors are equipped to deal with complex cases and have taken advanced training and precautions to ensure your safety. We will work with you to determine the appropriate level of sedation for your specific needs.

The following sedation options are available: tablet or IV sedation. Tablet sedation is a medication taken orally prior to the procedure. IV Sedation is administered and monitored by a registered nurse intravenously and you will feel like you slept through the whole procedure.Some of the conditions we consider when selecting the best option for you include your age, weight, level of anxiety, length of the procedure and your overall health.

To ensure the safety of our patients, we require that an adult bring you to your appointment and stay to drive you home when oral sedation or IV sedation is administered. Patients might feel a little drowsy or groggy after the procedure and must have an adult accompany them to make sure they understand the after-care guidelines and arrive home safely.

A Few Things You Should Know
Before Choosing Sedation Dentistry:

  • If you have dental phobias, sedation dentistry can help you complete your treatment comfortably and quickly.
  • If you have a severe gag reflex or difficulty sitting still for long periods, you are a great candidate for sedation dentistry.
  • If you are having extensive dental treatment such as implants, extractions or surgery, sedation dentistry will make the procedure significantly more comfortable for you.
  • Not all insurance companies cover the cost of sedation, however the procedures can often be combined and completed quicker.
  • At your initial consultation, your dentist will select the best sedation modality for you. This means we will together determine if mild, medium or deeper sedation would be better for your comfort and safety. We will thoroughly go through your medical history to ensure your well-being prior to advising any procedure.
