Sedation Dentistry in Mississauga
At Meadowvale Dental Group, every patient’s experience matters to us. We provide a warm and welcoming environment to help relieve any anxiety or tension that you may feel leading up to your appointment. However, for some patients, this anxiety can feel overwhelming no matter how great the atmosphere is. By offering sedation dentistry, we provide patients with an option to have a fully relaxed and stress-free experience. This ensures everyone can access dental health care in Mississauga.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide is a quick and highly effective method for sedating patients before and during dental treatments. The colourless and odourless gas is breathed in by the patient through a mask, leaving the patient feeling relaxed and sleepy but still responsive. Within minutes of removing the mask, the feeling of sedation will subside. After nitrous oxide sedation, you can expect to get back to your normal routine right away, but you likely won’t have much recollection of your time spent in the dental chair.
Oral sedatives can be prescribed by our dental team in advance of your appointment or treatment. We provide you with all the instructions you need about when and how to take the pills to ensure they’re in full effect by the time you sit down in the dental chair. Oral sedatives provide another form of conscious sedation, which means you will be mildly aware of your surroundings during the procedure, but experience less intense sensations, such as pressure, sound, and smell. Don’t forget—you’ll need to arrange a ride home after receiving oral sedation as it’s slower to wear off than nitrous oxide.
