Sedation Dentistry North York - Emergency Dentist North York

If you suffer from dental phobia or dental anxiety, but you need to go to the dentist, North York Dentistry, your most trusted dental office in North York, is proud to offer sedation dentistry as coping means to your dental needs such as the following:


What is General Anesthesia?


General anesthesia is when you take sedatives that will make you totally unconscious during your dental procedures. Depending on your unique situation Dr. Claire Benmergui may suggest either oral medication, or intravenous (IV) sedation. This can be used during emergency dental services in North York to comfort and relax our nervous patients in pain.  


What is Oral Conscious Sedation?


Oral sedation dentistry is where we provide an oral sedative that is taken one hour prior to the dental visit. This can be done with a sedative pill or Nitrous Oxide. Nitrous Oxide, also known as “laughing gas”, is a powerful gas that, when mixed with oxygen and administered via a face mask, blocks pain and reduces anxiety. 


What is IV Conscious Sedation?


IV sedation is used to create a conscious sedation or “twilight” state where your body and mind are completely relaxed, but you are not unconscious. IV sedation minimizes any feelings of discomfort or anxiety, while still allowing you to talk and respond to questions or react to verbal cues while the procedure is occurring. In most cases, you will have no memory of the procedure and you will need someone to take you home after the procedure is complete. 

Sedation dentistry can be expensive. However, our cheap dentists in North York will work with you in creating payment plans, if needed. Contact us to book an appointment or consultation.
