Sedation Dentistry in North York

Dental Anxiety North York

It is estimated that approximately 30 to 40 million North Americans avoid seeing the dentist because of dental anxiety or dental phobia (fear of dentists). Despite these phobias often being exaggerated, they can become very real when dental avoidance results in undiagnosed and untreated oral health complications.

If you often avoid the dentist due to dental anxiety, learn more about how Sedation Dentistry can help at Kaydental, our North York dental office.

Topical Anesthesia - Oraqix®

Topical Anesthesia Oraqix North York

At our North York dental office, we use a topical anesthesia gel called Oraqix to help patients feel more comfortable during deep scaling or root planing procedures. It does not require injection and is very effective for patients who have dental anxiety, allowing our dentists to perform otherwise uncomfortable and painful periodontal treatments efficiently.

Nitrous Oxide

Commonly known as "laughing gas", Nitrous Oxide is used to induce a state of relaxation, often allowing patients to be less anxious about the procedures that are happening while the freezing we use takes care of any pain or discomfort. The nitrous oxide is inhaled through a nose piece during your procedure and monitored by our trained team. Nitrous oxide, although not technically a sedative, can affect your reaction time so our North York dental office requires that you have a companion to pick you up from your appointment.

If you have a medical condition, please notify our North York family dentist prior to a sedated dental procedure. Patients should also notify their dentist about any medications they are currently taking.

Fees and Financial Information

At our North York dental office, our fees are based on the most current Ontario Dental Association fee guides.
