Sleep Dentistry - Sedation Dentist Pickering Ontario
Sedation Dentistry is one of the methods we utilize to help patients have a pleasant experience when undergoing complex dental procedures. Brockington Dental uses various sedation techniques and equipment to make sure that each patient is at ease while undergoing treatment.
Our Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry in Pickering methods include:
- Nitrous Gas (Laughing Gas) – This is a colorless, non-flammable gas with a hint of sweetness. This type of sedation is popular for its anesthetic and pain-reducing effects. Most patients prefer this method due to its euphoric effect. It is the go-to method for adults and children alike.
- Oral Sedation – This medical procedure involves taking oral sedative drugs to reduce the fear experienced during a dental procedure. Oral sedation is a recommended method for patients who suffer from anxiety, prior dental trauma, belonephobia (fear of needles or sharp instruments) or for those who have a general fear of the dentist.
- Intravenous (IV) Sedation – This technique involves an intravenous needle containing a sedative, which in turn causes the patient to feel drowsy and unaware when a procedure is being carried out. It is more commonly used for multiple implant surgeries and wisdom tooth extractions, and other complex procedures. IV sedation is considered as one of the alternatives to general anesthesia for minor surgeries. It also helps avoid the complications of general anesthetic agents.
