At Richmond Hill Dentistry we offer Sedation Dentistry as an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free, dental experience to those who are afraid of the dentist. Sedation dentistry is popular because most sedatives can be taken by mouth, meaning no injections, no anxiety and no pain. Most sedatives allow the patient to stay awake during the procedure. Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, for example, only work to calm anxiety throughout the dental visit. Whatever the form of sedative, it is essential to be accompanied by a caregiver. Sometimes, Dr. Randy Singh, Dr. Marty Sekand, Dr. Ken Jandoo or Dr. Steven Schneider will prescribe sedatives to be provided the night before the dental visit, which means that driving to or from the appointment is not advisable.
