Depending on the dental procedure and your feedback from your FREE dental consultation, one of the following four sedation techniques may be administered to you:
Used for the most complex or invasive procedures, general anesthesia renders patients fully unconscious for the dental procedure’s entire duration.
For more complex procedures or patients with severe dental phobias, this sedation technique is administered intravenously and takes effect very quickly.
Aka inhaled minimal sedation; this technique requires the patient to breathe in nitrous oxide / laughing gas. The dentist carefully controls the patient’s intake of the gas through a mask.
The most common sedation technique used in dentistry, this is administered in the form of a pill one hour before the procedure. Oral sedation pills include: Lorazepam, Triazolam, Diazepam, or Halcion

Even though regular dentist visits are imperative to maintain good oral health, most people dread going to the dentist. People even relate going to the dentist with feelings of stress, anxiety and fear. Sedation dentistry is a common technique used by dentists to alleviate those dental fears making their visit tolerable and enjoyable.
Sedation dentistry is used in many dental procedures, especially in lengthy or complex treatments. One of several sedation techniques, along with a sedation level, is predetermined and carefully administered to the patient. These fast-acting sedative substances put patients into a deep relaxation allowing the dentist to efficiently perform the dental procedure.
Sleep dentistry allows nervous patients to relax during their dental procedure. You won’t feel a thing!
You’re not alone if you dread going to the dentist.
Sedation dentistry essentially turns off some, or all, of your senses with the use of carefully administered sedative substances, allowing you to undergo complex and lengthy procedures in a fully relaxed state. This not only gives you peace of mind, but it also allows our dentists to complete their dental treatments less disturbed, in a shorter amount of time with higher efficacy.
During your FREE initial consultation, our dentist will decide on a sedation level and sedation technique that will satisfy your unique requirements. This decision is based on your overall health, dental anxiety levels and the dental procedure being performed.
Don’t miss an important dental appointment because you’re worried about discomfort; sleep through it and wake up with a new smile!
There are four levels of sedation that can be chosen based on the specific needs of each patient, including:
Minimal sedation – puts the patient in a relaxed state of mind
Moderate sedation – deeper relaxation will cause slurred speech
Deep sedation – most senses are essentially shut off, but the patient is still on the edge of consciousness
General anesthesia – patients are put in a completely unconscious state for the duration of the procedure

During your initial consultation, you will answer a series of health-related questions to ensure that sedation dentistry is a safe option for you.
