SEDATION / SLEEP DENTISTRY

We offer several sedation / relaxation solutions for the anxious dental patient.

There are many reasons that dentistry awake can be challenging:

  1. Sometimes the patient is simply to young to understand and tolerate the procedure
  2. When there is a special needs patient that is unable to comply during treatment
  3. Severe gag reflex, causing the patient to be anxious and uncomfortable during their appointment
  4. Dental phobia or anxiety

At Skymark Smile Centre, we want to help you to relax away your dental appointment.

Sedation Options:

  1. Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) - While Nitrous Oxide doesn’t actually make most people laugh, it creates a very pleasant, relaxed and floating feeling that will alleviate any anxiety about the procedure. Due to the fact that all of the Nitrous Oxide is flushed from your system with Oxygen at the end of your appointment, you are able to drive home and do not need to be accompanied to your appointment.
  2. Oral Sedation - We can offer a pill to help you to completely relax during your dental appointment. With this type of sedation, you will require a ride home and someone to stay with you for the remainder of the day, as you may be sleepy or groggy for several hours afterwards.
  3. IV Sedation - IV Sedation provides a deeper sedation than the oral and NO2 options. Most patients report that they felt as though they slept through their entire appointment and have very little memory of the procedures. IV sedation is a type of conscious sedation, so you are still able to respond to the doctor during the appointment. With this type of sedation, you will require someone to come with you for your appointment, to provide a ride home and stay with you for the remainder of the day, as you may be sleepy or groggy for several hours afterwards.
