Oral Sedation

We don’t take it personally – some people are just fearful of dental procedures, and we understand that. There are options available to calm your nerves and make dental appointments more comfortable.


At 21st Century Dental Centre, we offer oral sedation – which means we can give you medication to relieve your anxiety and minimize any discomfort during a dental visit. Oral sedation has always been used during oral surgeries but is now becoming a popular option to relieve anxiety during many other dental procedures.


It’s particularly useful for people with a fear of dental visits, people with a history of anxiety/panicking.  It is also often preferred by people who would simply rather not be "aware" during a procedure.

You are allowed to go home following the procedure, but cannot drive for the rest of the day — and must be accompanied by a responsible adult. The medication wears off very quickly but could leave you feeling unsteady for the first few hours.


For more information about oral sedation, and to see if it’s right for you, contact 21st Century Dental today.
