At Park Place Dental, we understand dental phobia and anxiety, but we never want it to stand in the way of your dental care. For this reason, your dentist in Barrie, ON offers three levels of sedation dentistry to see you through your dental treatment.
To get started, your dentist discusses the various options with you and makes sure sedation dentistry is a good and safe choice. Don’t worry; most patients are good candidates for our sedation!
Our sedation dentistry options include:
- Nitrous oxide—a safe gas that produces feelings of ease and relaxation throughout treatment. When we remove your small nasal mask, the feelings leave, which means you are safe to drive yourself home from treatment.
- Oral sedation—a pill taken an hour or so before your procedure. You may not recall your treatment with this option, and you will need someone to drive you to and from your dental appointment.
- IV sedation—an intravenous method, also called sleep dentistry. With this option, you sleep through your dental treatment. You will also need a ride home from your appointment.
Your dentist may opt to use more than one sedation method as well.
We encourage you to contact our dental office if you have any questions about sedation dentistry in Barrie, ON.
