At Hunter Dental in Markham, our dentists provide dental sedation options, including IV, to help calm our anxious patients or to make long dental procedures more comfortable.
Our dentists are trained in various techniques to help relax and calm nervous patients. We also offer several sedation options.
Your dentist can help determine if dental sedation is right for you and will recommend an option for your procedure.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is inhaled through a mask placed over the mouth and nose. The medication provides relaxation to patients while allowing them to remain awake and able to communicate. The nitrous oxide tends to reduce anxiety, increase pain threshold, lessen a gag reflex, and creates an illusion of time passing more quickly.
Your dentist may prescribe oral sedatives to be taken prior to your procedure. This medication is in the form of a pill or liquid, and it significantly calms a patient while remaining awake for the procedure.
Administered directly into the bloodstream, IV sedatives provide the deepest level of sedation without using general anesthesia.
Our dentists at Hunter Dental will do everything we can to help anxious patients feel comfortable and relaxed when they visit us. We are happy to discuss your concerns and will work with you to ensure your comfort. We are here for you.
