At Quadra Dental Centre in Victoria, our dentists offer dental sedation options to make patients more comfortable during long procedures, and to calm anxious patients.
What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation allows us to use a variety of techniques to help patients feel more comfortable during dental procedures.
At Quadra Dental Centre, we do everything in our power to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. In addition to offering oral sedation, we are committed to working at your pace, taking breaks when you need them, and providing calm reassurance as required.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. This medication calms and relaxes patients as they remain awake and able to communicate. It may also help to lessen anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex and make time pass more quickly.
Your dentist can prescribe oral sedatives in liquid or pill form. Take this medication orally about an hour before your dental appointment. While it leaves you awake for your procedure, it will produce a calming effect to significantly relax you.
