Can I get dental sedation?

Can I get dental sedation?

Most of our patients at Proactive Dental Studio find that local anesthetic is sufficient to prevent pain during routine dental procedures. That said, some of our patients require additional help to get them through the essential treatment they need. That's where dental sedation can help...

Whenever you visit Proactive Dental Studio, our team strives to provide you with a relaxed and comfortable dental appointment. 

While most of our patients find that local anesthetic is adequate for preventing pain during routine dental procedures such as fillings, other patients find dental appointments more challenging and benefit from the additional help of dental sedation

Each patient's sedation and general anesthesia needs are unique. Your reasons for requiring sedation will be different from another patient's, that's why our team of dental professionals determine each patient's sedation needs on a case-by-case basis. 

Dental sedation may be used in the following cases:

  • Dental phobias
  • Exaggerated gag reflexes
  • Low pain tolerance
  • Special healthcare requirements
  • Difficulties sitting still during dental treatment
  • Difficulty holding mouth open for long periods of time
  • Severe dental anxiety or fear
  • Local anesthetic is not effective in controlling pain
  • Special needs due to mental or physical disabilities
  • Allergies to local aesthetic
  • Long, complex, or invasive dental procedures
  • Special needs due to mental or physical disabilities

Our dentists want to help you get the dental treatment you need in a relaxed and stress-free manner. Don't let dental anxiety prevent you from achieving your optimal oral health! Speak to your dentist about dental sedation options.
