Many people feel nervous or anxious at the prospect of visiting the dentist. In fact, even those who visit the dentist on a regular basis very often feel at least a little anxious about it. It's very common!

Fear is one of the biggest reason people avoid dentists. But it doesn't have to be!

If you experience anxiety about visiting the dentist, talk to us. Surdel Dental offers safe, effective sedation options that will help you feel more at ease during your next dental appointment. With the relaxing effects of sedation at your disposal, you're more likely to get dental care when you need it – and achiee better oral health as a result!

Why Sedation For Dentistry?

We use sedatives in dentistry to help ease patients' anxiety before, during and after dental treatment.

We usually recommend sedation for patients who feel nervous about dental procedures, or who need complex treatment, have time constraints, or have a severe gag reflex.

Sedation Options at Surdel Dental Centre

Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives are administered in the form of liquid or pills. The benefit of these is that they can be taken the night before an appointment to help you sleep, and/or one hour before your appointment to reduce anxiety leading up to and during the procedure itself.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide (which you may know as laughing gas), is an inhaled gas. Since each person is different, the gas levels can be adjusted to your needs throughout your appointment.
