What Is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you.
We do everything we can at Carrefour Dentaire de Montréal to make patients feel relaxed and at ease during their dental appointments. In addition to sedation, we will work at your pace, take breaks as needed, and provide calm reassurance as needed.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled orally and relaxes patients while keeping them awake and alert. It should promote relaxation and alleviate fear and tension.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. This medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. It leaves you awake for the procedure while producing a calming effect.
This technique delivers drugs into the bloodstream. You will remain conscious during dental treatments, but you will lose track of time and should be completely relaxed.
We offer general anesthesia for more complex treatments. The patient is completely unconscious and surgical treatments are performed while you sleep.
