Dental anxiety? You’re not alone. Dental sedation can help you take back control

Dental anxiety affects around 10 percent of Canadians. This fear can lead you to skip your regular check-ups or avoid complex procedures.

Maybe you had a bad experience with a dentist?

You’re afraid of needles?

Or you’re worried your procedure will hurt?

With sedation dentistry, you can stay calm and relaxed throughout your treatment.


Sedation dentistry may be just what you’re looking for

If you want to make a long procedure feel like nothing more than a quick check-up, sedation dentistry could be for you. These are just some of the benefits of sedation dentistry:

  • Help to keep you calm and relaxed throughout your procedure
  • Help those with a sensitive gag reflex
  • Limit your memory of the procedure
  • Make the time fly, so you don’t get bored or stressed
  • Reduce the number of visits for complex treatments

Sedation dentistry is for more than “dentaphobics”

When under dental sedation, long procedures seem to fly by. This means that Dr. Newman can complete complex work in fewer visits. All while you stay calm and relaxed.


Sedation dentistry explained

We have a solution to help put you at ease during your treatment

Dental sedation can take many different forms. Before your appointment, our team will ask questions about your medical history and lifestyle to determine the best treatment for you. These are some of the options available:

Anti-anxiety medication can be administered orally to help keep you calm but alert. This is perfect for those with a mild phobia or those undergoing long or complex procedures such as a root canal or extraction. The anti-anxiety medication will allow you to stay relaxed for longer, so Dr. Newman can complete your treatment in fewer visits.

Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask for the duration of the treatment. Once the nitrous oxide starts you will no longer feel the effects of the sedation. This type of treatment is perfect for more advanced phobias and those who may struggle to stay relaxed for long procedures.

Tranquillizers can be used to help the most nervous patients undergo complex procedures. You will be minimally conscious and the procedure will seem to fly by. You are also unlikely to remember the procedure. This can help to further ease your anxiety.
