Many people experience nervousness when they visit a dental office. The thought of sitting in a dental chair may make them nervous. Some people will avoid going to the dentist unless they experience a dental emergency. Are you one of these people? Set your fears aside! At our dental office, we offer sedation dentistry in for those, like you, who suffer from dental anxiety.
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax before and during dental treatment. You will remain awake during your appointment, but you will be comfortable and calm. You may not even remember much about your appointment.
Nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas, is a common form of sedation dentistry. Before your treatment begins, Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor will place a small mask over your nose, through which you will breathe a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen. This will help you feel relaxed and at ease. Our dentist can control the amount of nitrous oxide you receive based on need. After your treatment is done, the gas will wear off quickly. You can to drive yourself home after your visit.
Let our friendly dentist and team know if you have dental fears. We’d like to help! Contact Skyline Dental Associates today to learn more about the benefits of sedation dentistry in Ottawa, ON, and to schedule your next visit.
