Although we have offered many different kinds of sedation over the years to make even the most tense patient relaxed through any dental procedure, our office is now officially the home of North York Sleep Dentistry — a full service sedation facility run by a board certified dental anaesthesiologist to meet virtually all of your dental needs.
Don't wait until you are in great discomfort and we can't accommodate you during an emergency situation. For more information on sedation dentistry or to book a consultation, please contact us at email@example.com or call 416 244 5544.
Whether we are using a mild sedative like nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or let you sleep through the entire procedure, our goal is to insure that you have a visit that is free of stress, anxiety and discomfort. Regardless of the type of sedation, the comfort and safety of our patient is a priority! All methods are safe and implemented by a dentist and/or our board certified anaesthesiologist, Dr. Jon Lok. We exercise extreme care in deciding who is an appropriate candidate for in-office dentistry performed under sedation. This necessitates that all patients have a current medical examination, review of all medications and thorough questionnaire and exam by Dr. Lok.
There are different levels of sedation depending on our patient's age, health, level of anxiety and the type of treatment being done;
Often with the use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and /or a mild sedative, you remain awake but experience a comfortable and pain free appointment with the use of "freezing" to eliminate any discomfort.
You remain less aware than above — often dozing of — and often have little memory of your appointment. With the use of "freezing", you are totally comfortable. If required, we can always take you to a deeper level of sedation at any time.
We insure that you sleep through the entire appointment whether it be for cleaning, wisdom teeth removal, crowns, bridges or implant placement. Total comfort while totally asleep.
