Sedation dentistry is a helpful option for those who suffer from dental anxiety or a dental phobia.

Dr Parul Bhatia and her team are specially trained and experienced to offer conscious sedation at Butler Dental. We understand that fear and anxiety can complicate access to necessary treatment and we want to help you maintain a healthy dentition in a comfortable and safe setting.

Sedative drugs are delivered:
  • Intravenously or
  • Inhaled (oxygen/nitrous oxide sedation or laughing gas)
The medication induces a dreamlike state so that you are unaware of the dental treatment and will not remember it. This makes the experience of receiving dental treatment very comfortable.

Sedation is also very useful if you have a strong gag reflex or require complex dental work such as surgical extraction of your wisdom teeth. Sedation dentistry can also be helpful in reducing the number of visits for dental treatment.

Imagine if you could have all your treatment done in one visit without remembering it.
