Sedation in dentistry is available for patients with anxiety. Canyon Dental Centre in North Vancouver offers oral sedation for our patients.
Sedation, sometimes referred to as ‘relaxation’, sleep’ or reduced-anxiety dentistry, allows us to create a safe and comfortable dental experience for patients who have avoided the dentist out of fear or who might have time restrictions.
Ask our dentists at Canyon Dental Centre to see if oral sedation is right for you.
Sedation may be a good choice for patients who have:
- Had traumatic dental experiences
- High fear
- Difficulty getting numb
- A bad gag reflex
- Very sensitive teeth
- Complicated dental needs
- Limited time to complete dental care
- A dislike of the sounds, noises and smells associated with dental care
- Anxiety about needles or injections
