Eliminate Dental Anxiety with Sedation

As our patient, it is our priority for you to receive the treatment in a relaxed state of mind. If you are feeling a little apprehensive about your upcoming appointment, we are happy to provide sedation options.

What to expect from different levels of sedation:

Mild Sedation

Tranquil relaxation often provided by nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or a tablet of medication similar to a sleeping aid. You are conscious and aware during mild sedation, but stress is reduced.

Combined Sedation

Produces a twilight-like sleep where you are responsive to verbal direction while you “daydream.” Time feels compressed and longer appointments become easier. This type of sedation is often produced by the combination of a tablet and nitrous oxide gas.

Intravenous Sedation

A more profound, peaceful sleep-like state. Patients will be barely aware. There may be brief periods where you are in a controlled state of unconsciousness so that you are not bothered by treatments that can cause discomfort. This is an excellent, safe, and predictable form of sedation for many patients.

General Anaesthesia

Patients will be asleep for the duration of the treatment(s) and supervised throughout by an anaesthesiologist and registered nurse (RN), using hospital-grade equipment.
