Anxiety and fear keep far too many people from visiting the dentist each year. This common problem impacts the dental health of those afflicted by dental anxieties. Here at Arbo Dental Care in Bradford, Ontario, we are pleased to offer sedation for those who struggle with fear and anxiety about receiving dental care. Our expert staff wants you to be comfortable and worry-free during your visit, so that you come away with the best experience possible.
Sedation Dentistry Options
Some patients are hesitant to explore sedation treatment because they don’t want to be completely unconscious during their procedure. Our sedation dental treatments allow our patients to be conscious, but relaxed during their visit with minimal memory of the experience afterward. We offer different sedation options to chose from; our experienced staff can help you decide which option is right for you.
• Nitrous Oxide Gas, also known as “laughing gas,” is a mild sedative and a common sedation choice. The patient breathes the gas through the duration of the procedure to relieve anxiety, elevate mood, and reduce pain. What’s better, the side effects of this option are minimal and recovery from the sedative effects can be speedy.
• Oral Sedation is a medication (in pill form) taken prior to the patient’s visit. It can be taken again, as needed, right before the procedure to ensure comfort and relaxation. The medications used in the oral conscious sedation method don’t directly result in sleep—they simply relax the patient and reduce discomfort. With this option, you’ll arrive to the office relaxed and leave the office feeling the same way. For patients seeking oral conscious sedation, a companion is needed to take you to and from your appointment.
• IV Conscious Sedation is administered intravenously, so it starts working right away. If you elect to use this sedation option, you can expect to be groggy after your procedure. With IV conscious sedation, you will need a companion to drive you to the office and take you home after your visit.
Our patients do not need to go through a dental visit or procedure with undue anxiety and stress. The various sedation options we offer at our Bradford dental office help to make you feel comfortable and relaxed during your visit.
