Why Sedation For Dentistry?
We use sedatives in dentistry to help ease patients' anxiety before, during and after dental treatment.
We usually recommend sedation for patients who feel nervous about dental procedures, or who need complex treatment, have time constraints, or have a severe gag reflex.
Sedation Options at Surdel Dental Centre
Oral sedatives are administered in the form of liquid or pills. The benefit of these is that they can be taken the night before an appointment to help you sleep, and/or one hour before your appointment to reduce anxiety leading up to and during the procedure itself.
Nitrous Oxide (which you may know as laughing gas), is an inhaled gas. Since each person is different, the gas levels can be adjusted to your needs throughout your appointment.
