At One Centre Dentistry we understand that many people experience fear and anxiety when they visit the dentist. This fear or anxiety can prevent many people from going to the dentist and keeping them from getting the necessary dental treatment in a comfortable fashion.
Sedation dentistry will allow you to remain calm, relaxed and comfortable during any dental procedure you may need. Sedation Dentistry will immensely benefit you if you have experience fear or anxiety, past negative or traumatic dental experiences, needle phobia.
You breathe nitrous oxide — otherwise known as “laughing gas” — combined with oxygen through a mask that’s placed over your nose. The gas helps you relax. Your dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas tends to wear off quickly. This is the only form of sedation where you may be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.
Oral sedation. Depending on the total dose given, oral sedation can range from minimal to moderate. For minimal sedation, you take a pill. Typically, the pill is Ativan (lorazepam) and it’s usually taken about thirty minutes to an hour before the procedure. The pill will make you drowsy, although you’ll still be awake.
