Sedation Dentistry

If you’re anxious about dental visits, Hanover Dental has the solution.

We are pleased to offer Sleep Dentistry at our location in Hanover, Ontario. For some people, a visit to the dental office is a very stressful, emotional event. If you have a hard time getting through a dental procedure because of nerves or anxiety, you can relax — Hanover Family Dental Centre offers an option that could help put you at ease.

Sedation Dentistry (also known as Sleep Dentistry) from Hanover Dental is quickly gaining popularity. It’s when a patient receives medication to relieve their anxiety and minimize any discomfort during a dental visit.

Almost anyone — adult, teen or child — is a candidate for sedation dentistry. It’s particularly useful for people with a fear of dental visits, or people with a history of anxiety/panicking, but it’s also preferred by people who would simply rather not be “aware” during a procedure.

The sedative medication is administered orally and the patient enters a state of dreamy sleepiness. Some patients fall asleep, while others remain awake but don’t notice or care about the dental work being performed.

Patients are allowed to go home following a sedation dentistry procedure, but cannot drive for the rest of the day — and must be accompanied by a responsible adult. The medication wears off very quickly, but could leave you feeling unsteady for the first few hours.
