I.V. sedation, sometimes called sleep dentistry, is a service that we are very proud to offer in our clinics.
Two of our dentists completed yearlong sleep dentistry internships at the Health Sciences Centre. In addition, our two anesthetists are trained to provide deeper anesthesia services for our extremely apprehensive patients.
The advantage of I.V. sedation is the control we have over the drug levels given to the patients. It is like having a dial that allows us to make your dental experience comfortable, pain free, memory free (you will not remember the appointment!), and gag free.
This form of sedation is very safe as we can quickly reverse the effects of the drugs and have you “wake up” in seconds!
We use I.V. sedation for all aspects of dentistry: fillings, implants, wisdom teeth removal and cleaning teeth.
