Our practice offers sedation dentistry in Delta to target your pains for longer and more complicated procedures, as well as to help relieve any dental anxiety you may have. You can choose to either take a small pill an hour prior to your appointment or get nitrous oxide gas in combination with oral sedation. Although sedation is available for extensive procedures, it is not recommended for new patient examinations.
Common Types of Sedation Dentistry
There are several types of sedatives that can be used during dental procedures depending on the type of procedure and your comfort level.
Depending on how severe your dental anxiety is, each type of sedative can be used for different procedures. Sedation dentistry is most commonly used in Delta for procedures such as teeth extractions, wisdom teeth, root canals and cavity fillings. If you are only mildly nervous of dental treatments then laughing gas could be enough for you, but if you have severe anxiety general anesthesia may be used more frequently.
