Do you get anxiety or feel nervous thinking about visiting the dentist? You will love our anxiety-free dentistry for adults and children. We use nitrous oxide sedation to help ease those anxieties about dental treatment so you feel comfortable and relaxed during your visit.
This allows us to make the most efficient use of the chair time to complete your treatment. You leave feeling completely positive about your dental treatment experience.
Sedation during dentistry offers several benefits for both the patient and the dentist. Sedation dentistry is sometimes the only way some patients can actually get the dental care they need.
Benefits of Dental Sedation:
- Patient stays relaxed,
- Increased patient comfort,
- Movement control,
- Gag reflex control,
- Little or no memory of treatment,
- Saves time,
- Fewer appointments needed.
What is Nitrous Oxide?
Nitrous oxide is simply a tasteless, odourless gas. You breathe it in through a mask that is placed over your nose. Nitrous oxide is instantly reversible once the treatment is done. It can be used selectively or for the duration of your appointment. You will be awake and alert – you simply won’t feel any anxiety! And you will be perfectly OK to drive home.
Dental Oral Sedation
We also offer oral sedation for your dentist appointment. You simply take a sedative orally prior to your dental treatment. This allows you to relax and enjoy a worry free dental visit. With this method of sedation, you may drift off into a restful state. Don`t worry you will be able to breathe on your own and can communicate when needed. Your dental appointment will pass quickly and you may have little memory of your visit. Oral sedation may benefit patients experiencing anxiety or those who need extensive treatment or lengthy appointments.
If visiting the dentist causes you anxiety, please arrange for a consultation to determine if you are a candidate for dental sedation during your treatments.
