Nitrous Oxide Sedation, Oral Sedation & IV Sedation Dentistry in Mississauga
Anxiety-Free Dentistry for Adults and Children!
Nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation transforms adults and children filled with anxieties about dental treatment into comfortable, relaxed and responsive patients. This allows us to make the most efficient use of chair time to complete treatment and leave you feeling completely positive about your dental treatment experience.
Nitrous oxide/oxygen (N2O) is simply a gas which you breathe in through a mask that is placed over your nose. It is tasteless, odourless and instantly reversible. It can be used selectively to make anesthetic more manageable or for the duration of your appointment. You will be awake and alert – you simply won’t feel any anxiety! And you won’t need a drive home.
Inhalation sedation may be helpful for:
- fear of pain, office noises, injections, dentists
- strong gag reflex
- pre-existing or generalized anxiety
Oral sedation may benefit patients experiencing anxiety or those who need extensive treatment or lengthy appointments. If you are interested in this aspect of care, please arrange for a private consultation with Dr. Šarić to determine if you are a candidate for oral sedation. She welcomes anxious patients at her Mississauga, Ontario office.
Wouldn’t it be great to eliminate dental phobia once and for all?
If you have avoided visiting your dentist because of phobia, anxiety or stress, it’s time to discover I.V. sedation dentistry at Smile Design. Whether you need a cavity filled, dental implants, treatment for sore gums – or even cosmetic procedures to whiten your teeth or fix a chipped tooth – you’ll float through it all without the stress or fear you may have experienced before.
IV sedation refers to the injection of medication into a vein (usually in your arm) to produce a state known as conscious or heavy sedation. This is a fast acting, effective sedation characterized by sleepiness, lack of awareness, lack of memory as well as comfort and relaxation. You will be able to breathe on your own, speak and obey commands such as “open your eyes”. This type of sedation is well suited to wisdom tooth removal and other surgical procedures.
