Sleep dentistry and Sedation

The team of professionals at Orillia Smile Centre are pleased to offer sedation & sleep dentistry. We understand the importance of maintaining optimal oral health and wellness. Unfortunately, this is difficult for many patients who fear dentistry, some to such a degree that it completely prevents them from even seeing a dentist. Fortunately there are several options available to alleviate the fear associated with dental work. Whether it is "laughing gas" to help relax a patient who has some slight jitters or "sleep dentistry" for the very fearful or anxious, we have the answers for you.

Some patients who could benefit from our various sedation options include:

  • Children who are anxious or very young
  • Patients with strong gag reflex
  • Adults with dental fear
  • Patients with phobia of needles (dental freezing)

Sedation Dentistry

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is often a perfect option for an anxious patient who could benefit from the relaxing, sedative effect of Valium prescribed at the ideal dosage to induce sleep and comfort. This form of sedation assists in alleviating anxiety while providing conscious relaxation throughout your dental appointment.

IV Sedation (Intravenous)

IV sedation allows you to remain conscious throughout the procedure so that you may communicate and cooperate follow instructions given by the dentist during the procedure as needed. Some patients prefer complete general anesthesia, which renders the patient unconscious throughout the entire dental appointment.

Call us today so that we may guide you in selecting the option that works best for you.
