Are you fearful about visiting the dentist? If so, you’re not alone. Up to 20% of all dental patients experience anxiety to one degree or another when it comes to having dental treatment. The good news is, our sedation dentistry in Scarborough makes having treatment a more relaxed and comfortable experience.
Why See A Sedation Dentist?
At Scarborough Dental Group, we hear from many patients who tell us they’ve stayed away from the dentist for years – even decades – due to a fear of pain during treatment. For some patients, just the sounds or smells of the practice can cause them to relive past trauma experienced at the dentist. You don’t have to avoid necessary dental treatment anymore.
Just like thousands of other patients who have gotten through treatment with sedation, you can stay relaxed and comfortable throughout your entire visit by opting for laughing gas sedation. You can even discuss options with our staff to have multiple treatments performed during a single visit while you're sedated. We strive to create an environment that allows you to gain the most benefit from your treatment.
If it’s been some time since your last dental appointment, you may not realize how advanced techniques and treatments have ushered in a new age of comfortable dentistry. You needn’t fear experiencing severe pain during routine, restorative, or cosmetic dentistry.
With sedation dentistry in Scarborough, our team will make sure you are comfortable from the moment you sit down to the moment you walk out of our office. Our primary goal is to ensure you get the dental care you need while helping you maintain a relaxed state of mind.
You’ll Be In Control
It’s comforting for patients to learn more about the sedation process before they arrive for their appointment. You may be relieved to learn that although you’ll be very relaxed during sedation, you’ll still be able to respond to the requests of our dental staff. Once the nitrous oxide has worn off completely, you should be able to drive yourself home; however, we recommend bringing along a driver if you prefer to leave the office immediately after treatment.
