Do you suffer from dental anxiety? Do you have a fear of the dentist chair? Luckily for you, Maple Dental Health's Vaughan dental office offers sedation dentistry. Whether it is due to a past bad experience or general anxiety, sedation offers a way to relax and make the experience more comfortable.
At Maple Dental Health we offer the following forms of sedation:
Nitrous Oxide Sedation: otherwise known as “laughing gas” is combined with oxygen through a mask that’s placed over your nose. This mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen helps you to feel relaxed, calm and comfortable. Your dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas wears off quickly.
Oral Sedation: this is a safe, effective way of making a more pleasant visit to the dentist! Depending on the total dose given, oral sedation can range from minimal to moderate. A pill is given to you an hour before your procedure to allow the effects of the medication to start. The pill will make you drowsy and relaxed, although you’ll still be awake. On the day of your appointment you must have someone accompany you and to drive you home, as you will not be able to do so yourself.
IV Conscious Sedation: You receive the sedative drug through an IV, so the effects of the drug works more quickly. This method allows the dentist to continually adjust the level of sedation with the help of a nurse.
