Ottawa Sedation Dentistry
If you become excessively anxious by the thought of having a dental appointment, worry not. We offer the following sedation techniques to make your visit relaxed and pain-free:
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation dentistry is a great option for people with a mild fear of or anxiety about dental treatment. The procedure involves the administration of nitrous oxide gas through a mask. It is completely non-invasive and allows you to maintain consciousness and awareness throughout your appointment. It simply takes the edge off. You’ll be able to interact with the Ottawa dentist and their team throughout the appointment.
The effect of nitrous oxide wears off quickly and will not interfere with your daily routine or your ability to drive yourself home from the appointment. Many people prefer this sedation technique, as it requires no injections.
In this method of sedation, a sedative pill is administered to the patient. The sedation method is simple and can be used for both adults and children. It induces a mild level of sedation, allowing you to stay awake throughout the appointment. Despite this, you may have some trouble remembering, as this is a potential side-effect of the sedative.
It is one of the simplest sedation techniques available. You simply take a pill an hour before the start of your appointment.
