Can you really be relaxed in a dentists office? Do you have a toothache that is driving you crazy, but the thought of going to the dentist is even worse? Depending on the problem, sometimes it may seem like you would rather bear the pain than go to the dentist.
If you need a little help to calm your nerves so you can get help for your teeth, our sedation dentistry London Ontario clinic may be your answer.
Most sedation dentistry procedures can be done under a local anesthetic where the cosmetic dentist just numbs the area she is treating. You won’t feel anything during the treatment.
If a local anesthetic is not enough, a general anesthetic can be applied so you sleep through the entire experience.
Discuss your needs with our sedation dentist. We’ll work out the perfect solution for your dental health.
Depending on what you need in terms of your fears and your medical requirements, there are several “levels” of sedation that can be applied: Minimal sedation means you will be awake, but very relaxed. Moderate sedation or conscious sedation means you may slur your words and are not likely to remember much of the experience. Deep sedation is when you are asleep but can be awakened. General anesthesia is meant to make you completely unconscious. Depending on the procedures being applied, our London Ontario sedation dentistry dental clinic will help you select the right level of sedation so you can be comfortable in getting the help you need for your teeth.
There are four main ways to sedate the patient:
