Are you anxious about your dental appointment?
Protea Dental Centre understands that some times people feel very anxious or nervous about visiting the dentist. That is why we offer several options in order to make your experience here more pleasant for you! Sedation techniques induce a sleep-like state in patients so that they feel no pain, or anxiety during treatment. These techniques also help ensure that dental treatment seems to go by faster from the patient's perspective. Often, patients have no memories of treatment being even being performed.
Our practice uses two main types of sedation services:
Oral Conscious Sedation
Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)
We will prescribe an oral sedative for you to take prior to your appointment, so you will feel relaxed by the time you sit in for the treatment. To enhance the effects of the sedative, we may also provide you with laughing gas (Nitrous Oxide) during your appointment. We will monitor you continually while you are in our office, and will make any adjustments necessary to make sure you are feeling comfortable.
If you are interested in sedation for your next appointment please contact us for more information.
