Dental health is a key part of your overall health, so it is important to make and keep your regular dental appointments. If you struggle with dental fear and anxiety, we can help. There are better options for dealing with the fear besides staying away from the dentist. We offer many ways for you to feel relaxed during your visit. Sedation dentistry may provide the solution you need to help you improve your dental health while also protecting your emotional health.
IV Sedation Dentistry
This sedation is performed in-centre by an anesthesiologist or dental specialist. It often gives a calming, drowsy effect and causes the procedure to feel much shorter than it really was.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide is more commonly known as ‘laughing gas’. It is administered through a mask and eases patients’ anxiety levels. Once the gas is stopped, the sedation subsides quickly.
This form of sedation is like a sleeping pill. It induces drowsiness and calms down the patient for the procedure. This sedation may last several hours.
