Sedation dentistry

Many people fear dental procedures. They worry about the pain they might feel, as well as potential discomfort. Sedation dentistry can definitely help patients feel more relaxed during dental work. However, these treatments should only be performed under the guidance of a dentist and staff specifically trained in sedation procedures.

One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Therefore, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers - or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits - can often be performed in fewer appointments.


With sedation, the dentist administers a drug before or during the dental procedure. However, only general anesthesia renders the patient completely unconscious.

You may prefer dental sedation or sleep dentistry, but consult your dentist about it first. Before recommending any particular sedative, we will first need to obtain your complete medical history, including any medications you are currently taking — both prescription-strength and over-the-counter. It is also important for us to know if you smoke or drink. Mention any allergic reactions you’ve experienced in the past, especially to anesthesia, so your dental professional can make safe recommendations.

Patients who consider sedation dentistry often
have different reasons for their interest:

  • A phobia related to dental procedures
  • Bad experience with dental work in the past
  • Particularly sensitive oral nerves
  • A small mouth that becomes sore during dental work
  • Resistance to local anesthetic
  • General anxiety disorder

When you ignore issues such as dental caries, loose or broken teeth, or other problems, you put your oral health at risk. Furthermore, the problem might become more complicated as time passes, which could mean that you’ll need more extensive dental work in the future. If you’re putting off dental work because you fear the pain or any other part of the work, sleep dentistry might just be the best solution.
