The Redwood Dental Centre team at our Winnipeg office offers dental sedation options to help alleviate dental anxiety and make patients more comfortable during long procedures.
What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. At our Redwood Dental Centre office, we offer oral sedation or nitrous oxide as sedation options. Your dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you
At Redwood Dental Centre, we do everything we can to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. In addition to offering sedation options, we will work at your pace, take breaks when you need them, and answer any questions you may have about your procedure or treatment.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. The medication calms patients even though they remain awake and able to communicate. It also tends to lessen anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex and make time pass more quickly.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. It leaves you awake for the procedure, but produces a calming effect to significantly relax you.
