Not sure if sedation would be the best option for you? Feel free to schedule an appointment with Aurora Dental Studio, we would be happy to discuss your dental anxiety and various available options to determine the best treatment for you.
Laughing gas sedation is a wonderful option for patients that experience mild dental anxiety when visiting the dentist. Laughing gas sedation utilizes a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen to provide a euphoric and calm feeling to the patient. Laughing gas is administered using a tiny facial mask which is placed over the nose. It quickly wears off following treatment, allowing patients to carry on with their daily activities.
Oral conscious sedation is a great option for patients that experience moderate dental anxiety when visiting the dentist. Oral conscious sedation involves prescribing a medication (typically anti-anxiety) prior to the appointment/treatment. The patient will take the medication and experience a more calm and relaxed experience during treatment. Following treatment, the medication can take a while to wear off, a ride to and from your appointment is necessary.
IV sedation may be required if the patient experiences severe dental anxiety while visiting their dentist. IV sedation is administered intravenously prior to treatment and quickly provides the patient with a calmed and relaxed feeling. Following treatment, patients will be monitored before being allowed to leave. IV sedation requires a ride to and from the appointment.
