Sedation Dentistry in Richmond Hill, Ontario | ArtDent Dental Office
If you're feeling uncomfortable, nervous or anxious with the thought of visiting a dentist for your next dental appointment, our Dentists and staff at Artdent Family Dentistry, located across the street from York General Hospital, in Richmond Hill, ON. have you covered.
Our dentists offer a number of modes of sedation to ensure your dental appointment and our dental treatments are comfortable, cause minimal pain, and go smoothly - Depending on the type of dental treatment, treatment time and your medical history, our dentist may recommend:
Oral conscious sedation
This is a sedative, in pill form, that the patient takes prior to arriving on site for a dental procedure. We often also administer nitrous oxide once the patient is in the office to enhance the calming effects of the oral sedative.
Intravenous (IV) conscious sedation
This sedation method puts you in a 'twilight' state, ensuring you're fully relaxed, yet conscious, during your appointment. This will not only calm the nerves, but will reduce any pain, felt during a procedure. This mode of sedation is often usedul for oral surgery, where patients should be comfortable in order to remain as motionless as possible. We often combine this mode of sedation with a local anesthetic and / or laughing gas.
Nitrous oxide, or Laughing Gas
More commonly known as 'laughing gas', a nitrous oxide / oxygen mixture is given to you though a face mask and puts you in a relaxed state. Once your dental treatment / procedure is completed and the mask stops administering the nitrous oxide, it will take roughly a half-hour until you regain full control. Typically, our patients are able to drive themselves home without any trouble after a treatment that requires this mode of sedation.
