Sleep & Sedation Dentistry

We know that going to the dentist isn’t easy for everyone, but avoiding your regular checkups can be a slippery slope to poor oral health. If you find yourself avoiding the dentist, sedation dentistry may your ideal solution. We use sedation dentistry to create a relaxing experience throughout a wide variety of treatments in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, or restorative dental care. The most popular types of dental sedatives are nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation. Different levels of sedation (mild, moderate and deep) can be utilized depending on individual needs.

When it comes to dental care, do you:

  • Fear needles?
  • Cringe at all noises, smells and tastes associated with dental care?
  • Feel embarrassed about your teeth?
  • Have anxiety about visiting your dentist?

At Applewood Dental, we offer oral conscious sedation needle-free treatment for patients who wish to feel relaxed at the dentist, without having to remember their visit.

Is Sedation Dentistry Right for You?

Sedation dentistry is a safe, effective solution for patients with dental anxiety, dental phobia, or for patients who have difficulty receiving the dental care they need.

You may be an ideal candidate for sedation dentistry if you have:

  • Fear of visiting the dentist
  • Had a traumatic dental experience
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • A heightened gag reflex
  • Very sensitive teeth
  • Limited time to complete your dental care
  • Complex dental concerns

At your consultation for dental sedation, your dentist will explain the safety of sedation and the options you may have so that you feel fully informed and confident in your decision.

If you have a fear of the dentist or feel that you have difficulty sitting in the dentist chair, don’t hesitate to call our office at (705) 436-5777 to speak with our team.
