What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to help put patients at ease during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you.
At Brentwood Dental Centre, we do everything we can to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. In addition to offering sedation options, we will work at your pace, take breaks when you need them, and provide calm reassurance when needed.
IV sedatives are administered directly into the bloodstream through the vein for the deepest level of sedation without general anesthesia. We will attach you to a monitor so that the dentist can keep track of vital signs during the procedure.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. It leaves you awake for the procedure while providing you with a calming effect to significantly relax you.
