Dental Sedation Services—Solution for Dental Anxiety

If you are apprehensive about dental trips, you are not alone. At Dr. Mark Rhody Dentistry, we help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable while in the dental chair getting their treatment. Our Etobicoke dental clinic offers dental sedation services to make every dental visit a pleasant experience.

Like any other medical procedure, dental sedation does not come without risks. However, it is considered to be safe and effective when administered by a licensed dentist. Our sedation dentist takes time to thoroughly assess your health condition and discuss the different sedation options to help you make the right choice. This ensures your safety and well-being during the procedure.

Dental sedation is a popular dental treatment due to the benefits it offers to both the dentist and the patients. Dental sedation relaxes patients during treatment so they can get the necessary care for their mouth, teeth, and gums. The many benefits of sedation dentistry include: 

  • Patient cooperation
  • Movement control
  • Time-saving
  • Speedy dental procedures
  • Little or no memory of the treatment

When it comes to taking care of your oral health, there is no need to put off your regular dental visits. If you want to learn more about dental sedation options or want to know if you are a good candidate for the procedure, speak with our dentist. For dental appointments, call us at (416) 231-4281. 

Your visits will always be relaxing

For some patients, a visit to the dentist can be a source of great anxiety. But with Etobicoke sedation dentistry, we can make sure that your visits are as relaxing and as stress-free as possible.

We practice both oral and nitrous oxide Etobicoke dental sedation techniques. 

Oral sedation is the most preferred option by our patients. Usually, a pill is taken the day of the appointment, but if you are extra nervous and can’t sleep before you see the dentist, Dr. Mark Rhody sedation dentistry expert, can prescribe you a pill to take the night before so you can sleep. Oral sedation patients are required to take a pill 1-2 hours prior to their visit and will remain sedated for several hours after the visit, so we recommend making appropriate travel arrangements to ensure that they get home safely. Oral sedatives are not an anaesthetic and often an anaesthetic injection “freezing” is used in conjunction with the oral Etobicoke sedation dentistry.

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is another option. You are sedated just for the procedure (PRIOR to the freezing) and will feel back to normal at the end of the appointment and can drive yourself home. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a nose cone and will quickly put you in a relaxed state. There are generally 4 stages of dental sedation, ranging from a slight tingling to extreme sleepiness. Depending on the amount you breathe in and the length of use, your experience with nitrous oxide will vary.

With Nitrous oxide, you will remember the procedure. With an oral sedative pill, you likely will not remember the entire appointment.

By offering Etobicoke sedation dentistry we can ensure that you are as relaxed as possible when you come to visit us. If you need some help getting rid of your anxieties about visiting the dentist, call us – we’ll give you the care you want.
