Dr. David Michaels – your North York dentist – offers sleep dentistry for anxiety-free dental work while you sleep!
We all have a fear of something. If your fear happens to be visiting the dentist’s office, we still don’t want you to miss out on the many benefits of receiving proper oral health care. That is why we offer sleep dentistry at Dentistry on Wilson. In addition to dentistry while you sleep, we also offer milder forms of sedation for people with less anxiety and for less severe treatments.
North York Dentist and Board-Certified Anaesthesiologist at Dentistry on Wilson
Our board-certified anaesthesiologist, Dr. Jon Lok, exercises great care in selecting candidates for sedation. Whether it’s a mild sedative, such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or sleep dentistry, our goal has always been to provide patients with a completely stress-free experience — and so as safely as possible.
To qualify for in-office sedation, all patients must have a current medical examination, a comprehensive review of current medications, as well as complete a thorough questionnaire and exam by Dr. Lok.
Types of Dental Sedation at your North York Dentist
Depending on your age, health, and typical level of anxiety, there are varying levels of sedation available to you.
- Mild Sedation
For those with slight anxieties in visiting the dentist, we are able to offer Nitrous Oxide Sedation , otherwise known as “laughing gas.” This type of sedation is seen as pain-free and comforting by most patients. We can also utilize freezing or numbing agents for many types of procedures.
- Moderate Sedation
For those that prefer to be generally aware of the procedure, but are open to dozing off, we can offer a more moderate form of sedation. Due to the type of sedation, you will most likely have little memory of your visit. We can also numb or “freeze” certain areas in order to provide the utmost in comfort and a virtually pain-free experience. If you do experience discomfort, we can safely take you to a deeper level of sedation.
