Do you dread dental procedures or appointments? You’re not alone. A lot of people suffer from dental anxiety. Fortunately, there are choices available to help you relax and enjoy your dentist treatment. As one of Ontario’s premier dental clinics, the team at Cosmo Dental Centre understands your fears and concerns. That’s why we offer minimal dental sedation. This method not only makes dental procedures less frightening, but it also keeps you from feeling anything during the treatment.

How dental sedation can help you feel at ease

Dental sedation is especially beneficial for nervous patients or complex dental procedures. When you’re nervous, your pain threshold drops, causing hypersensitivity to even minor sensations, sounds and pricks. Anxiety and terror cause your body to generate biochemicals such as adrenaline, which might activate your fight or flight response. You expect something that will cause great agony so your muscles tighten even when no pain is present.

 

All unpleasant sensations fade with dental sedatives, leaving you peaceful and comfortable in the dentist’s chair. 

Types of sedation

At Cosmo Dental Clinic, we offer such types of sedation: nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas), oral minimal and oral moderate sedation, which works quickly and can help with dental anxiety during cleanings and fillings. Although you’ll be awake during the procedure, you will be less aware of what’s happening, which can help you feel more relaxed.

 

Some dental extractions, like wisdom teeth extractions, can be performed with minimal or moderate sedation using an orally administered medication.

 

Some Dental procedures, like wisdom teeth extractions in highly anxious patients or difficult extractions, can be performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation, where the patient will be under a deeper level of sedation or asleep. Although we do not offer this type of sedation at our facility, we can arrange and make a referral for the patient to be seen for this type of procedure at the facility where this is provided.
