Sedation dentistry is used to help enhance a patient’s comfort and reduce any anxiety related to receiving dental care. This sedation dentistry may involve mild to moderate sedation. We have several options for “conscious sedation”
Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)
Nitrous Oxide is a good choice for patients who are a little anxious about their dental appointment. It helps patients relax, giving them a “floating” feeling, often accompanied by a mild tingling and numb feelings in the fingertips and lips. Its effects resolve almost immediately after stopping use, allowing patients to recover very quickly and drive home after the appointment.
This anaesthesia option is a great option for patients who may be anxious about their dental treatment and may want an extra level of comfort.
Oral sedation can be used for any dental procedure if the patient chooses. With this option, we can perform more procedures in one appointment saving you time and worry.
