Options for Anxious Patients

The dentists at St. Clair Beach Dental Centre in Tecumseh provide sedation services to help anxious adults and children get the dental treatment they need.


Using a variety of techniques, we work to help our patients relax before and during their dental procedures so they come away feeling more at ease with the notion of in-office oral care.

If you have been avoiding dentistry due to fear or anxiety, there are many alternatives to ensure your comfort. Ask us how we can help you control your fears in a warm and relaxed environment with a genuine team who has your best interest and comfort in mind, every step of the way.

IV Sedation

For complicated services or oral surgery, we may need to provide our patients with IV sedation. This may also be a good option for patients who feel apprehensive about their dental appointment. The advantage of IV Sedation is that the patients comfort can be adjusted as required and patients do not recall the procedure when the appointment is complete.

Patients will need someone to drive them home following this treatment.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation involves a prescribed pill when you arrive for your appointment. The oral medication will cause you to be drowsy. We ask that you arrange for someone to drive you to home afterwards.

Who Needs Sedation?

Sedation services may be for you if you experience any of the following:

  • Intense fear of dental visits
  • A bad dental experience in the past
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Fear of needles
  • Extreme dislike of the smells and tastes associated with dental procedures
  • Strong gag reflex or inability to keep mouth open during treatment
  • Difficulty with traditional “numbing” i.e. The numbing does not take
  • Extensive treatment or multiple procedures to be done at the same time
