Sedation Dentistry for Nervous Patients

March 26, 2018

If you cringe at the thought of being in the dentist’s chair – you’re not alone. Many people are nervous about dental procedures and treatments. If you’ve avoided visiting the dentist because of fear or anxiety, then sedation dentistry (a.k.a sleep dentistry) is the solution for you.

With the use of sedative agents, individuals are able to receive the required treatments without the anxiety and fears that come along with dental procedures.

There are many sedation options available to you – ranging from laughing gas (where you can still drive yourself home after) to conscious iv sedation, to general anaesthesia. From very young children to anxious adults, sedation is used to make everyone’s dental visit as comfortable and calm as possible.

It’s important to have a positive and relaxing dental experience. Sedation dentistry can help you remove the fear and anxiety that you associate with dental visits, and get the proper dental care that you need.

High levels of fear and anxiety about the dentist, and traumatic dental experiences are not the only reasons an individual would consider sedation dentistry. You are also a candidate for sedation dentistry if you have a sensitive gag reflex, sensitive teeth, difficulty numbing the area of treatment, or a complex dental condition.

For your comfort, sedation is available for any dental procedure, from cleanings and fillings to crowns and root canals.

If you require sedation dentistry to be comfortable, please call 905.637.5463 (KIND) or (289) 319-7869.

Let’s Bond! Cosmetic Bonding 101

July 16, 2014

Not only do we want to bond with our patients and create great, lasting relationships, we also want to transform your smile with teeth bonding! Bonding is among one of the easiest and most cost-effective cosmetic dental procedures.

What is Bonding?

Bonding, or bonded restoration is a process that painlessly restores the appearance of your teeth. It uses a tooth-coloured material called composite resin. With bonding, we can change the colour, shape and length of your teeth, eliminate crowding, close up spaces, and do a lot of the things that can be done with veneers.

Why is Bonding Done?

Bonding is considered a good option to:

  • Restore chipped teeth
  • Build teeth up
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Change the shape of the teeth
  • Whiten a discoloured tooth.

So there is really no reason for you to be unhappy with your smile! Chipped, discoloured, or broken teeth are no match for bonded restoration!

Is Bonding a Long Process?

No serious preparation is required, and normally, no anaesthesia is needed! It’s a painless procedure so sit back and get ready for your perfect smile.

It usually takes 30-60 minutes per tooth to complete the process.

How Long Does Bonding Last For?

Bonding usually lasts about five to eight years, at which point you can have it redone, or you can switch to veneers.
