Sedation

Sleep dentistry and sedation

Sleep Dentistry and Sedation at Birchmount Dental Group At Birchmount Dental Group, we offer a range of different sedation services to make your experience as pleasant as possible. We recognize the importance of good dental hygiene and realize that fear comes into play, preventing some people from seeing their dentist regularly. We have options to help ease the fear associated with dental work.
We have laughing gas to help take the edge off, and help with the jitters, or sleep dentistry for those who dread making the visit. We work with you to figure out the best course of action for your treatment. We can help children and adults with excess fear of ‘the dentist’, or different aspects of dental work, patients with a strong gag reflex, and those with a fear of dental freezing.

Oral Sedation

This is an effective option for nervous patients who would benefit from the relaxing side effects of Vallium at the right dosage, to induce sleep. This helps with anxiety and provides conscious relaxation throughout the dental procedure.

IV sedation (intravenous) and general anesthesia

At Birchmount Dental Group, Dr. Stephen Ing is the onsite anesthesiologist. Dr. Stephen Ing assists in both the deep conscious sedations and general anesthesia. During IV sedation the patient stays conscious and can communicate with the dentist at all times. Some patients find it easier to go under general anesthesia rendering them unconscious for the whole procedure, and then leisurely waking up when it is done. Each patient is different and we help decide what is best for you.
