Relief for Anxious Patients

At Highland Dental Centre, we know that visiting the dentist can sometimes be stressful. With our more anxious patients in mind, we offer some safe and effective sedation options to help make dental procedures less daunting.

Dental Sedation

Regular visits to the dentist are essential in maintaining good oral hygiene, and that in turn has a positive impact on your overall health and well-being. However, plenty of people are so anxious about spending time in the dentist’s chair that they skip out on treatment entirely, and their health suffers as a result.

We want to help patients get past their dental anxiety, and offer oral conscious sedation to ensure that even our most nervous visitors are comfortable and relaxed.

Oral Conscious Sedation

To relieve the very real and often debilitating anxiety associated with dental phobia, we offer oral conscious sedation. Patients who feel stressed about dental work and those who need multiple procedures performed in one visit can benefit from this type of sedation.

If you choose this type of sedation, you will take an oral sedative before coming to your appointment, then receive nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to supplement the effects of the sedative. 

Oral sedatives can be taken any time between the night before your appointment up until about 30 minutes prior to your dental visit, depending on the severity of your anxiety. 

If you’re a candidate for oral sedation, we’ll give you specific instructions regarding when to take your pills before your appointment. Your vital signs and comfort level will be keenly monitored throughout your visit.
