When does Sedation Dentistry Become Essential?

Sedation dentistry Scarborough is generally indicated for patients who are fearful before a dental procedure. Sedation Dentistry becomes important if the patient has:

• Low pain threshold
• Highly sensitive teeth
• To undergo invasive dental procedures
• Difficulty sitting during the treatment due to OCD or other causes.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves using medications or oral ingestions to help patients relax and alleviate anxiety before dental treatment. We administer sedation dentistry in Scarborough to patients who have fear or anxiety regarding their upcoming dental procedure.

At Dentistry at Consilium, you have several options to reduce anxiety. We take patient comfort very seriously – even if you’re feeling anxiety about a minor procedure, we’re here to help you get through it.

We have sedatives that can be administered intravenously or as oral ingestions. Unlike anesthesia which is used to numb an area, sedation affects your mood and tolerance before a dental procedure.

At Dentistry at Consilium, we want you to be confident about your dental treatment. Reach out to us to discuss your sedation plan. We’ll be happy to resolve all your queries and doubts.

Our seasoned team is well-trained to administer sedation to ensure a comfortable dental procedure. We believe in providing the highest quality of dental care in a safe and relaxing environment. At all times during your treatment, we’ll prioritize your safety and ensure you feel supported by our friendly dentists.

Sedation Options at Dentistry at Consilium

Every patient has their unique needs when it comes to dental procedures. Once we have discussed your situation and have finalized a treatment plan, we’ll discuss your sedation options based on the following factors:

• Your preferences
• The type of treatment you’ll be undergoing
• Your medical history and conditions
• Whether you’re taking any prescription medicines

Based on these factors, we’ll narrow down on one of the sedation options mentioned below:

Inhaled Sedation

Also known as minimal sedation, this involves placing a mask over your nose and releasing nitrous oxide, a.k.a. laughing gas, combined with oxygen. Carefully controlled by our dentists, this is a minimal sedation technique that helps you to relax.

Oral Ingestions

Oral ingestions are pills that induce sedation before your procedure. This is also a minimal sedation technique that keeps the patient drowsy but awake.

Intravenous Sedation

Our dentists will administer a sedative through your veins. The dose can be adjusted by the dentist for maximum effectiveness.

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is administered at the treatment area to cause numbness and avoid pain and discomfort.

Deep Sedation or General Anesthesia

Deep Sedation refers to general anesthesia like Lidocaine that makes the patient completely unconscious. The patient may fall asleep during the procedure and can only be awakened once the effects of anesthesia wear off.
