Experience dentistry free from stress and anxiety
Anesthetic and sedation options are available to prevent you from feeling pain and discomfort during your dental procedure. There are several methods available and several may be combined to give you complete coverage. The type of sedation or anesthesia used will depend on your personalized treatment plan, your personal needs and the expert opinion of your dentist or specialist.
Types of Sedation
The different kinds of sedation available can be summed up into three major groups. We can temporarily numb the small area receiving the work, You can be sedated so you are still awake but completely relaxed, or you can sleep through your procedure with general anesthesia. Here’s some more information about each group:
Everyone is familiar with this reliable standard. We patiently numb the area and then carefully inject a local anesthetic to put a small area of your mouth to sleep. You may feel pressure but will not feel pain.
Using prescription medication, laughing gas or administered through an IV, with light to moderate sedation you will be completely conscious but totally relaxed. This method of sedation is often used along with local freezing.
General anesthesia or deep sedation will make you very nearly or completely unconscious. Patients who remain awake often report not remembering a thing. You will remain relaxed and drowsy well after you wake up and will need someone to drive you home and stay with you.
The benefits of dental sedation
Sedation and sleep dentistry are useful options that help us serve patients from all walks of life with many different challenges to overcome. Some of the benefits of sedation dentistry are as follows:
Overcoming Dental Anxiety
Sometimes the fear and worry can feel worse than the treatment itself. Dental anxiety shouldn’t stand between you and the dental treatment you need. If you have mild or extreme dental anxiety or fear is keeping you from seeking dental treatment, please speak up! We can help.
Make Time Fly By
For long procedures that leave you sitting in the chair with your mouth wide open for a long time, sedation will keep you relaxed and comfortable. Your procedure will be over before you know it. If you require IV sedation, it will feel like an instant has passed.
Tailored for Your Personal Needs
Do you have a sensitive gag reflex? Chronic restlessness or restless leg syndrome? Does local freezing just not work for you? Sedation is really helpful in many different cases, ensuring that treatment is available to everyone.

They listened to me carefully and answered my questions very well. Overall I had great experience with this dental clinic, and I am planning to visit this clinic again.
I had a large broken filling which was bothering me on a Sunday. I am so glad the clinic was open on the weekend and could book me immediately to do the filling. The staff we so nice and helpful. Dr. Ken was so helpful, explained everything to me and did a great job at filling my tooth so that my invisalign aligner fits like before.
One more thing that I loved about this clinic was that they show the details of your treatment on a monitor before the doctor starts the work and you can make any decisions based on the costs
I had been always nervous agoing to see a dentist in Canada although I had insurance as I was feeling much more comfortable having treatment from dentists in my country when I go back for a visit.
However, I won't worry about it at all from now on! Literally, a minute after you enter this clinic, you'll feel like you're at home.
Personal & professional care from Dr.Ken and exceptional kindness from staff will even make you forget that you are actually in a dental clinic! ^^
