What is sedation dentistry?

At Brampton Dental Arts, we offer a variety of sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry, in essence, is sleep dentistry.

We use different drugs, whether it’s a pill, laughing gas, a combination of both, or even IV sedation.

What are the benefits of sedation dentistry?

We have been able to help those patients who have high anxiety or fears. They come into a calm and relaxed environment, we have them put to sleep, and when they wake up, everything is done.

What are the procedures performed under sedation?

The treatment can range from cleanings, fillings, root canals, crowns to surgical procedures like extractions, wisdom teeth extractions, and implants.

Different options, depending on the level of anxiety and the length of the procedure, are available.

My goal is always to have a thorough discussion with all of our patients. I make sure that they have an amazing, comfortable experience, so they will want to come back and maintain their oral health.

Brampton, ON patients have options in sedation dentistry

In the care of Dr. Azeem Sheikh and Dr. Stephen Ing, sleep dentistry is tailored to the patient’s level of fear or anxiety, rather than the type of procedure. For example:

  • Nitrous oxide – Pleasantly scented “laughing gas” is inhaled through a nose mask. It quickly induces a carefree state of mind. This is a good choice for a mildly anxious patient or someone who has a fear of needles. The effect wears off quickly, so you may drive and return to work or school. Non-addictive nitrous oxide is safe for children as well as adults.
  • Oral sedation – Calming medication is provided in pill form, before dental work begins. You remain conscious but relaxed and may doze off. Treatment time seems to pass quickly, and most patients have little recollection of the visit. You need a companion for the appointment, though, due to residual grogginess.
  • Intravenous sedation dentistry or general anesthesia – Dr. Ing is certified in dental anesthesiology, thus well-qualified to administer IV or general anesthesia. These deeper methods of sedation may be appropriate for a patient with acute dental phobia, or who is having oral surgery. When you awaken, the work is done!
  • Soothing room – Return to your normal state of mind at your own pace. Our comfortable soothing room has a homey environment, and you are welcome to have a friend or family member with you during recovery.

Dr. Sheikh believes that positive experiences in the chair contribute to a good attitude toward dental care, for life. Painless dentistry is one of the ways he and the Brampton Dental Arts team create those experiences.

New patients are encouraged to call (905) 581-3726 to book a low-stress appointment.
