Sedation Dentistry in Orleans, Ontario

Are you afraid of visiting the dentist due to dental fear or phobia? If so, you're not alone since many patients have some form of dental fear. At Orleans Gardens Dental Centre, we are committed to giving our patients a comfortable and relaxing dental experience. That's why we offer sedation dentistry so you will remain comfortable and relaxed during your appointment. We offer a few types of sedation dentistry options which include:

Oral conscious sedation:

Oral conscious sedation is used to relieve a patient's fears and anxieties during their procedure. One hour after ingesting an oral sedative, we are ready to begin treatment and the patient is completely relaxed and calm for their procedure. We may sometimes add nitrous oxide to further increase the sedation effects for the patient.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation:

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, quickly puts the patient in a euphoric and relaxed state. During this state, all pain and discomfort are drastically reduced which allows the dentist to safely perform the procedure. The gas is inhaled through a face mask which the patient breathes through. The dentist monitors and controls the amount of sedation received so the patient remains safe and comfortable during the procedure.

Parenteral Conscious Sedation:

An intramuscular form of IV sedation is available with Dr. David Craig, who performs extraction and implant surgeries right here in our office. Conscious sedation is a minimally depressed level of consciousness that retains the patient’s ability to independently and continuously maintain an airway and respond appropriately to physical stimulation or verbal commands (such as “open wider”).
