Promoting Stress-Free Dental Care
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you.
At Sheridan Dental Centre, we try to do what we can to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. In addition to offering sedation options, we will work at your pace, take breaks when you need them, and provide calm reassurance as needed.
Our goal is to create a positive dental experience for our patients so they can maintain good oral health without anxiety or fear. We believe that everyone deserves access to dental care in a comfortable and supportive environment.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. It calms patients even though they remain awake. It also tends to lessen anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex and make time pass more quickly.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. It leaves you awake for the procedure, but produces a calming effect to significantly relax you.
