Soothe Your Dental Anxiety With Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety is a common hurdle for many individuals, often preventing them from seeking necessary dental care. Fortunately, at Skyview Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Aurora, ON, our sedation options offer a solution, providing a relaxed and comfortable experience for even the most anxious patients.

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a mild sedative administered through a mask placed over the nose. It induces a calming effect, allowing patients to remain conscious and responsive during the procedure. One of its key benefits is its quick onset and offset, making it suitable for short appointments. Patients often appreciate its ability to alleviate anxiety without lingering drowsiness afterward.

Oral Sedation

This option involves taking prescribed medication prior to the appointment, typically in the form of a pill. This medication induces a deeper state of relaxation than nitrous oxide and is recommended for patients with moderate to severe anxiety. While patients remain conscious, they may feel drowsy and may not remember much of the procedure afterward. Oral sedation is convenient and particularly beneficial for more prolonged or more invasive procedures.

IV Sedation

For those requiring a higher level of sedation, intravenous (IV) sedation may be recommended. Administered directly into the bloodstream, IV sedation allows for precise control of sedation levels throughout the procedure. Patients under IV sedation experience a profound sense of relaxation and may drift into a semi-conscious or unconscious state. This method is commonly chosen for complex dental treatments or patients with extreme anxiety or special needs.

The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry promotes better oral health by encouraging regular dental visits and compliance with treatment plans by minimizing fear and discomfort. Additionally, it enables dentists to work more efficiently, resulting in shorter appointment times and improved outcomes.
