Dental Sedation, Antigonish Dentist

Relieve Your Dental Anxiety

At Antigonish Family Dentistry, we understand that a visit to the dentist can cause some of our patients to experience a little anxiety.

For some, it's the thought of getting an injection, for others, it's post-operative discomfort. Whatever the reason, our team of professionals is ready to listen closely and help you through your appointment.

The good news is, we've seen patients become more and more relaxed over time to a point where they actually look forward to their appointments.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. With our oral sedation, you will remain awake throughout your procedure, but the medication will provide a calming effect to help relieve any discomfort as well as anxiety you may have.

How to Prepare for Your Appointment

Listen to your dentist's instructions to ensure that you prepare yourself for sedation before your appointment. Since the oral sedative causes drowsiness, it is highly recommended that you bring someone with you to your appointment so they can safely drive you home following your procedure.
