Sedation dentistry.

We understand that visiting the dentist can be a stressful, overwhelming or even frightening experience. At Northfield Dental Clinic, we want you to feel relaxed, assured, and comfortable during your dental visits, which is why we offer sedation dentistry options to allow you to tailor your experience to fit your needs.

Our sedation dentistry options.

Both Dr. Rebecca Booker and Dr. Aaron Cooper practice oral sedation dentistry and can guide you on the method of sedation that best fits your individual needs. There are various sedative methods available to help you feel more relaxed, comfortable, and calm. A few examples include Either Ativan (Lorazepam) or Halcion (Triazolam), which commonly make patients feel drowsy and relaxed during their dental treatments.

If you are receiving sedation services, we ask that you please arrive at our Nanaimo dental clinic at least one hour prior to your appointment. All patients receiving sedation are required to have a friend or relative accompany them to and from our office. If you’d like more information, please contact our office.

All FAQs
How can cosmetic dentistry help improve the appearance of my smile?

Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. If your teeth are broken, chipped, stained, worn, discoloured, or misaligned, cosmetic dentistry can give you a better smile. Whether you want teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or are interested in dental implants, our Nanaimo dentists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs.

What is sedation dentistry and do you offer it?

Yes! Our Nanaimo Dental Clinic offers two sedation dentistry options to make your appointment more comfortable. Your sedation dentist can administer oral sedatives one hour before your dental appointment, which will make you feel more relaxed and calmer. If you take oral sedatives, you will be required to have a responsible adult accompany you to and from your appointment. We also administer nitrous oxide, known as “laughing gas,” for patients that prefer to go about their day immediately after their appointment with no after-effects.

Do you do wisdom tooth extractions?

Yes! Most wisdom tooth extractions can be done in our office. Very occasionally we may need to refer a patient to a specialist to extract wisdom teeth.

I think I am having a dental emergency. What should I do?

At Northfield Dental Clinic, we understand that dental emergencies can happen at any time. Our Nanaimo Dental Clinic will make our best efforts to see dental emergencies on the same day. Although this cannot be guaranteed, we will see you to assess your dental emergencies as soon as we possibly can. Pain, swelling, bleeding, or redness may indicate a dental emergency.
