Your visits will always be relaxing
We practice both oral and nitrous oxide Etobicoke sedation dentistry techniques.
Taking an oral sedative is the most preferred option by our patients.Usually a pill is taken the day of the appointment, but if you are extra nervous and can’t sleep before you see the dentist, Dr. Mark Rhody sedation dentistry expert, can prescribe you a pill to take a night before so you can sleep. You are required to take a pill 1-2 hours prior to your visit and will remain sedated for several hours after your visit, so we recommend making appropriate travel arrangements to ensure that you get home safely. Oral sedatives are not an anaesthetic and often an anaesthetic injection “freezing” is used in conjunction with the oral Etobicoke sedation dentistry.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is another option. You are sedated just for the procedure (PRIOR to the freezing) and will feel back to normal at the end of the appointment and can drive yourself home. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a nose cone and will quickly put you in a relaxed state. There are generally 4 stages of sedation, ranging from a slight tingling to extreme sleepiness. Depending on the amount you breathe in and the length of use, your experience with nitrous oxide will vary.
With Nitrous oxide you will remember the procedure. With an oral sedative pill you likely will not remember the entire appointment.
By offering Etobicoke sedation dentistry we can ensure that you are as relaxed as possible when you come to visit us. If you need some help getting rid of your anxieties about visiting the dentist, call us – we’ll give you the care you want.
