Sedation & Dental Anxiety
At Creditview Dental, our Mississauga dentist offers dental sedation options to help anxious patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental procedures.
What Is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to calm anxious patients during a dental procedure or to help make patients as comfortable as possible during long procedures.
Types of Sedation
At Creditview Dental, we offer a variety of sedation options for patients. Your dentist can help determine if sedation is right for you and which option will best suit your needs.
- Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) is inhaled through the mouth and nose. The medication aims to calm patients even though they remain awake and are able to communicate. It can also help to lessen anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex and make time pass more quickly.
- Oral Sedation
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist and taken orally. The medication is designed to leave you awake for the procedure but can significantly relax you.
Managing Dental Anxiety
Dental anxiety is a common condition in which a patient experiences fear about their dental appointments.
Avoiding dental treatments can lead to a number of oral health issues. That's why we try to help anxious patients feel as relaxed and comfortable as they can when they visit us.
We're happy to talk to you about your concerns and discuss sedation options. We will also try to work at your pace and take breaks if you need them. We are here for you.
