At our dental office, we understand that visiting the dentist can be a source of anxiety for some patients. That is why Dr. Shawn Loo is proud to offer sedation dentistry options to ensure your visits are as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves the use of sedative medications to help patients relax during dental procedures. It is an ideal solution for those who suffer from dental anxiety, have a low pain threshold or require extensive dental work. Depending on your individual needs and the complexity of the procedure, our dentists may recommend various levels of sedation ranging from minimal sedation, where you remain awake but relaxed, to deep sedation, where you are on the edge of consciousness.

The Sedation Dentistry Experience

From the moment you walk into our office, our team works diligently to create a calming and welcoming atmosphere. If sedation dentistry is deemed appropriate for your situation, our dentist will explain the process, answer any questions you may have and ensure that you feel comfortable with the upcoming procedure. During the treatment, our skilled team will closely monitor your vital signs and ensure that you remain safe and relaxed throughout the entire procedure. Most patients find that time passes quickly, and they have little to no memory of the treatment afterward.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

  • Alleviate Anxiety: Sedation dentistry is excellent for reducing anxiety and creating a serene dental experience.
  • Comfort: Feel at ease and experience minimal discomfort during your dental procedures.
  • Efficiency: Procedures often seem quicker, and we can work more efficiently when patients are relaxed.
  • Memory: Most patients have little to no memory of the procedure, making for a more pleasant post-treatment experience.
  • Gag Reflex Reduction: Sedation can help to minimize gag reflex, making it easier to complete the dental work.
  • Accessibility: Sedation dentistry makes dental care accessible for those who might otherwise avoid the dentist.
