Sedation Dentistry

At Liberty Village Dental, we offer Sedation Dentistry as an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free dental experience to our patients, who are afraid of the dentist or undergoing extensive dental work.

Sedation dentistry is popular because most sedatives can be taken by mouth, meaning no injections, no anxiety and no pain. Most sedatives allow the patient to stay awake during the procedure. Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, for example, work to calm anxiety throughout the dental visit.

If dental anxiety is stopping you from scheduling a procedure, oral sedation may be the answer for you. At our dental office in Liberty Village, Toronto, we will prescribe you a pill for relaxation purposes, to be taken before your procedure. The effects, which include sleepiness and a general sense of calm, will last several hours, allowing you to get the dental care you need. We do require you to have a driver when opting for oral sedation.

Anxiety-Free Dentistry for Adults and Children!

Nitrous oxide sedation transforms adults and children filled with anxieties from dental treatment into comfortable, relaxed and responsive patients. This allows us to make the most efficient use of chair time to complete treatment and leave you feeling completely positive about your dental treatment experience. Nitrous oxide is simply a gas which you breathe in through a mask that is placed over your nose. It is tasteless, odourless and instantly reversible. It can be used selectively to make anaesthetic more manageable or for the duration of your appointment. You will be awake and alert – you simply won’t feel any anxiety or pain!

Inhalation sedation may be helpful for:

  • fear of pain, office noises, injections, dentists
  • strong gag reflex
  • pre-existing or generalized anxiety
