is your fear of dentists
harming your oral health?
Dental phobia can be devastating. It has been estimated that 10%-20% of the North American population is dental phobic and upwards of 50% of us harbor some reservations about visiting the dentist. These feelings can lead to people avoiding their regular check-ups and hygiene visits thereby compromising their oral health. In the worst cases of dental fear, people even avoid the dental office when in extreme pain and when their teeth literally fall out. Our sedation techniques can take you from a "twilight sleep" to simply "take the edge off" of your nervousness, all the way to a deep sleep (general anaesthesia). Drs. Isen and Nkansah and the Sleep for Dentistry team of registered nurses, dental hygienists, dental assistants and administrative staff have the training and experience to address your concerns and help to deliver treatment to you comfortably.
|Sedation options include:
• Nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
• Oral sedation
• Combination of oral sedation and nitrous oxide
• Light intravenous sedation
• Deep intravenous sedation
• General anaesthesia with intravenous medications or inhaled agents
The type of work being done at an appointment is not necessarily the deciding factor for the type of sedation that you will receive. We will work with you to choose the method that suits you best...
