What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation refers to techniques used to make patients more comfortable during procedures. Our dentists can help determine if dental sedation is the right option for you.
At Saugeen Dental, we do everything we can to help patients feel relaxed during their dental appointments. In addition, we will work at your pace, and provide calm reassurance as needed.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. The medication calms patients even though they remain awake and able to communicate. It also tends to lessen anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex and make time appear to pass more quickly.
