Sedation dentistry refers to a variety of techniques used to calm anxious patients during a dental procedure or to make patients more comfortable during long procedures.
At Toothworks Dental Clinics we offer sedation options for our patients.
Your dentist can help determine if sedation is right for you, and which option will best suit your needs.
Nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) 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 pass more quickly.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquid prescribed by your dentist and taken orally. The medication leaves you awake for the procedure, but significantly relaxes you.
Since 2001, Toothworks Dental Clinics have been providing patients of all ages with personalized dental care and a welcoming experience at locations across Ontario.Learn More
