Sedation Options For Anxious Patients

Gladstone Dental Centre offers oral sedation for patients who would like to stay calm and relaxed during their dentist appointment.

Are You Afraid of Visiting the Dentist?

If you're afraid of visits to the dentist, you're not alone. Many people who go regularly to the dentist still feel anxious about their appointments. 

If you experience anxiety, your dentist may recommend sedation for your next visit to our office.

Sedation can help you relax during an appointment, easing the anxiety associated with your dental procedure.

What is Oral Sedation?

Sedation for dentistry is the use of medication to help ease anxiety of dental treatment. Oral sedatives are prescribed by our dentist and are taken prior to your appointment. The medication is a relaxant which can help you feel more comfortable during your visit to the dentist.

Have you had a past dental experience that you find traumatic? Do you experience physical stress before your appointment? Do you worry excessively before your dentist appointment? If you answered yes to these questions, you may be a candidate for sedation.

Our dentists will meet with you to discuss sedation options available at Gladstone Dental Centre. They are here to answer any questions you may have about the procedure, and how sedation may affect your experience during your procedure.

If you suffer from any of the following conditions, you may be a candidate for sedation options:

  • Need to undergo several dental procedures at once
  • Have a sensitive gag reflex
  • Do not respond well to traditional freezing
  • Have back, neck or jaw problems
  • Require oral surgical procedures (dental implants, wisdom teeth extractions)
