What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedatives and other medications as part of a patient’s dental care experience. Sometimes called sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry helps patients relax and feel at ease during treatment. The levels of sedation and the dosage needed vary depending on the patient’s needs and the procedure being performed. These levels include:

  • Minimal Sedation: The patient is relaxed but awake.
  • Moderate Sedation: The patient is deeply relaxed and may even become drowsy without falling asleep.
  • Deep Sedation: The patient becomes drowsy and may fall asleep but can be easily awakened.
  • General Anesthesia: The patient is completely unconscious for a major surgical operation or invasive procedure.

At Yonge & Eglinton Dentistry, our professional dental team offers oral sedation. The effects of oral sedation range from minimal to deep, depending on the dosage. It can be used safely alongside local anesthesia for a more comfortable dental care experience. We recommend sedation for a wide variety of procedures.

Am I a Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation is recommended for any patients who experience dental anxiety. Fear of visiting the dentist can create a barrier to treatment, meaning that many patients avoid seeking much needed dental care. It is the goal of the Yonge & Eglinton Dentistry team to help every patient enjoy the benefits of excellent oral health. Sedation can be used to help patients with other barriers to treatment, such as:

  • Low pain threshold
  • The inability to sit still or comfortably in the dentist’s chair
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Bad gag reflex
  • Physical disabilities that prevent patients from holding open their mouths and relaxing their muscles

If you think you are a candidate for oral sedation, call Yonge & Eglinton Dentistry to schedule an appointment. Our dentist will gladly discuss your needs, questions, and concerns.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Sedation is not suitable for every patient. However, the Yonge & Eglinton Dentistry team has the experience and training to safely administer oral sedation at our Toronto practice. We will take a thorough medical history and discuss any medications you may be taking to ensure a safe, gentle dental care experience.
