If you’re one of the millions of Canadians who avoid dental visits each year because of anxiety, you could be putting yourself at greater risk for cavities, gum disease, or tooth decay. That’s why Trillium Dental offers sedation dentistry as one of our services.
Now, anxiety doesn’t have to stand between you and your oral health. Whether you experience mild, moderate, or extreme anxiety, with Trillium Dental you can finally have the smile you deserve.
Which Type of Sedation Is Most Right For Me?
The option that’s most right for you will depend on your level of anxiety. Patients with mild anxiety may only need nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, while patients with moderate to extreme anxiety may want to consider oral or IV sedation.
All three can safely and significantly reduce feelings of anxiety. In fact, with oral and IV sedation, you may become so relaxed you actually fall asleep in the dental chair. Their effects last much longer than nitrous oxide, though, so patients who choose oral or IV sedation will need a friend or family member at their appointment to drive them home afterward.
