Do you find that you are anxious or nervous before dental procedures? Our dentists at Cor-Dent Dental Centre in Winnipeg offer dental sedation "laughing gas" options to help patients feel more calm and comfortable during long procedures.
What is Dental Sedation?
With dental sedation "laughing gas", we have a variety of techniques at our disposal to help patients feel more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help you decide whether a dental sedation option is appropriate for your circumstances.
At Cor-Dent Dental Centre, we'll do everything in our power to help patients feel more comfortable and relaxed during dental appointments. Along with offering dental sedation options, we are committed to taking breaks when you need them, working at your pace and providing calm reassurance as required.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Patients inhale nitrous oxide through the mouth and nose. This medication calms patients even though they remain awake and are able to communicate. This form of dental sedation also tends 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. This medication is taken orally before your dental appointment. While it will leave you awake for the procedure, its calming effect will significantly relax you.
