Our dentists at Kerhoulas Dental Rosedale in Toronto are thrilled to be able to provide dental sedation to those who may be apprehensive about visiting us.
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to make patients more at ease during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you.
When having a procedure done at Kerhoulas Dental Rosedale, we hope that our patients feel comfortable. In addition to offering dental sedation, we will do what we can to work at a pace that is comfortable for you, take breaks if possible, and provide reassurance if needed.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. The medication calms patients while they remain awake and able to communicate. It also tends to lower anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex and make time pass 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.
