What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation refers to various techniques, including oral sedation, that are used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures.
We offer nitrous oxide at our Nepean dental clinic. You can take this sedation option if you need help getting calm.
In addition to sedation, our team offers other strategies to help you relax by working at your pace, taking breaks when needed, and providing reassurance as needed.
If you are someone that becomes anxious during dental visits, you are not alone. Speak with our dentists to learn how we can help you relax during your visit and determine if dental sedation is right for you.
Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas. This type of sedation option is inhaled through the mouth and nose.
This medication calms patients even while they remain awake and able to communicate. Laughing gas can help patients increase their pain threshold and make time pass more quickly. It also helps to reduce anxiety and the gag reflex.
