How Can Sedation Dentistry Help You?

Sedation dentistry is a technique used by the dentists at Signal Hill Dental Centre to assist patients in overcoming challenges such as anxiety or fear, when it comes to their routines visits. This technique utilizes a safe amount of medication to help patients achieve a state of relaxation and a more comfortable overall dental experience. At Signal Hill Dental Centre, patients are able to stay fully conscious with sedation.

How Sedation Dentistry Can Help You:

Overcome anxiety, fears, or stress:

There are many patients who are challenged with finding their dental visits enjoyable. This could be due to phobias or negative past experiences. With dental sedation, patients are able to get proper care with a reduced amount of stress. Many patients delay treatments due to their anxieties or fears, but with our sedation services we can ensure that your oral health is receiving the proper amount of attention.

More work in less time:

Being in a more relaxed state, our team will be able to perform the dental procedures more efficiently. With each visit being more efficient and productive, as a result you can expect to gradually decrease your frequency of visits.

No pain:

This technique increases the threshold for a patients pain tolerance, therefore allowing a more cooperative experience between the patient and the dentist.


Sedation dentistry is reasonably priced and affordable. But as previously mentioned, if each visit becomes more efficient due to sedation, then patients can also expect longer periods of times between visits – ultimately reducing costs.

Everyone reacts to sedatives differently, however our team is trained and knowledgable to provide levels of sedation that are most suitable to them. We are also committed to ensuring full overall health, so will take into considering any anticipated contraindications with other medications.
