Sedation Dentistry in Kanata Ontario

For patients who are nervous or have a dental phobia, dental sedation may be right for you. At Kanata Lakes Dental Centre, we offer two types of dental sedation:

Nitrous Oxide:

Nitrous Oxide is highly effective at promoting relaxation and minimizing pain. Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas, is inhaled via a gas mask which is placed over the patient’s face. Within a couple minutes, you will be in a highly relaxed and comfortable state. Because the sedative effects wear off quickly, you will be able to continue with your daily activities following your procedure.

Conscious Sedation:

Conscious Sedation puts the patient in a highly relaxed and calm state. In fact, it’s uncommon for many patients to fall asleep during their procedure. Patients are required to consume a sedative, in the form of a drink, prior to their procedure. Your vitals will be closely monitored and once you are completely relaxed, we will begin your procedure. Because the sedative effects take longer to wear off, you will need someone to drive you home following your appointment.

Our dental team will help to choose the appropriate sedation method for your needs. Contact Kanata Lakes Dental Centre at 613-270-9600 to learn more about dental sedation today.
