Why Choose Nepean Dental Centre for Sedation Dentistry?

  • Compassionate Dental Team That Cares
  • Patient Satisfaction & Comfort Are Our Priorities
  • Four Sedation Dentistry Options Available

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Designed for both children and adults, nitrous oxide sedation dentistry is a mild solution that is inhaled via a nasal mask. Once put into place, you begin to breathe in the nitrous oxide and oxygen mixture. This will cause you to become relaxed without being fully sedated. Although it might feel as if you are falling asleep, you will remain conscious enough to respond to our dental cues. Once the mask is removed, you’ll breathe in natural oxygen as the effects quickly dissipate, allowing you to leave and resume regular activity.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation dentistry requires that you take a prescribed pill medication before an upcoming procedure. Known as Halcion, it will help you to become relaxed and comfortable while also feeling sleepy. Much like nitrous oxide, it will not cause you to become unconscious, but you may drift off because of the grogginess. We’ll be able to awaken you easily once we are finished with treatment, but you will need to have someone drive you home.

Intravenous Dental Sedation

Depending on your preference and eligibility, IV sedation dentistry is a great way to overcome anxiety when faced with a complex dental procedure. The medication is injected into a vein in your arm or hand where it enters the bloodstream and begins to take effect. In no time at all, you’ll no longer feel nervous but completely at ease. Our team will monitor your vitals to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the appointment, making any necessary adjustments along the way.

Anaesthesia and Deep Sedation

Although it is not the most frequently used form of sedation dentistry, general anaesthesia as it is known is designed for individuals who require multiple or highly invasive dental treatments. Once administered, you will remain unconscious until it begins to wear off after the procedure is complete. This method of dental sedation requires that you have someone escort you home and monitor you until the effects fully dissipate.
