If anxiety or fear has been holding you back from getting regular dental check-ups or treatment, we invite you to come and experience our sedation dentistry services.
Sedation Dentistry in Kanata
We understand that some people get anxious even thinking about a visit to the dentist. Sometimes, this stops them from taking proper care of their oral health.
Both children and adults can benefit from sedation dentistry. It has minimal side-effects and allows patients to maintain a degree of consciousness. Patients are ready to resume their daily activities after a few hours of rest.
Our Kanata dentists will be happy to discuss dental sedation options with you. Visit our Kanata dental office or call our expert dentists to learn more.
Sedation Dentistry for a Comfortable Experience
At Kanata Lakes Dental Centre, sedation dentistry is administered in the following ways:
- Nitrous Oxide sedation (“Laughing Gas”)
Nitrous oxide gas is administered through a facial mask. It can quickly calm and relax you, even give you a euphoric feeling. The dosage is continuously monitored by the dentist and can be increased or decreased as needed. You will remain awake just very relaxed and carefree.
- Oral Sedation
If you prefer oral sedation (a pill), we will prescribe a single dose of oral sedative to be taken one hour before the appointment. The effect will last throughout the procedure and about two or three hours afterward.
In both scenarios, you will be able to interact with the dentist throughout the procedure and carry out his or her instructions. However, if higher doses of sedation are needed, you might not recall the details of the procedure or the visit.
