The friendly and compassionate team at Hanin Dental provides sedation services for our Surrey patients who feel nervous about receiving dental treatment.
Feeling nervous about visiting the dentist? Let us help.
If you feel nervous or anxious about the prospect of undergoing dental treatment, we want you to know that these feelings are completely normal. Even people who go to the dentist on a regular basis can still feel anxious about it; you're definitely not alone.
In fact, fear is one of the most common reasons people avoid necessary dental care.
But it's very important that you don't let fear stop you. Your dental health is important, and letting fear get in the way of treatment can result in a wide range of health and confidence repercussions. And, it could mean more invasive dental treatments in the future.
If you're feeling extremely anxious, though, it can be really difficult to work up the nerve to go through with dental treatment. So what's the answer?
Sedation Dentistry at Hanin Dental
At Hanin Dental, our dentists offer a variety of dental services with sedation, to help you feel more at ease during your dental appointments.
Sedation will allow you to relax before and during dental procedures, making it easier for you to get dental care when you need it. And the result? Better oral health!
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Dental sedation is use sedative medications to help patients relax before, during and after dental procedures. We often recommend sedation for patients who feel especially anxious about dental procedures, or who have extensive treatment needs, time constraints, and/or a severe gag reflex.
Sedation Options at Hanin Dental
Oral sedatives come in the form of liquid and pills that you can administer yourself the night before your appointment to help you sleep, and up to one hour before your appointment to reduce anxiety leading up to and throughout the treatment.
Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is an inhaled gas that is administered in our office at the start of your procedure. It functions to relax patients and relieve their feelings of anxiety. Since each person is different, the gas levels can easily be adjusted to your needs during your appointment.
