Sedation Dentistry

Sleep Your Way to a Beautiful, Healthy Smile

Imagine going to dental visits without fear, being able to receive all your dental care in just one appointment, and achieving a beautiful smile with no pain! This is made possible using sedation dentistry, offered at Four Seasons Dental Care of Toronto and Mississauga.

For those who truly dread going to the dentist because of dental phobias, anxiety, severe gag reflexes, sensitive teeth or have limited time to spend on dental care at the dentist, sedation dentistry is the answer. Sedation dentistry allows patients to drift through even the most complex dental work in a semi-conscious state. You will feel completely relaxed through multiple procedures, without pain or discomfort thereby turning a stressful or lengthy appointment into a pleasant and comfortable one.

Sedation dentistry is a term that refers to the use of anesthesia during treatment to put patients into a relaxed state, like sleep. Sedation is often used during procedures that require an extensive amount of time in the treatment chair. While sedation implies that patients are unconscious, this is usually not the case. Some forms of sedation dentistry simply alleviate anxiety or put patients in a sleep-like state, so that little is felt or remembered from the dental procedure.

Depending on the extent of the anxiety or phobia, varying degrees of sedation can be utilized, including conscious sedation with sedatives, inhalation nitrous oxide sedation, and intravenous (IV) sedation. These sedation dentistry techniques enable patients - who might otherwise avoid the dentist to receive dental treatment necessary for a healthy smile.
