Fortunately, there are many different dental clinics in Ottawa that are able to provide sedation services to their patients. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these clinics offer only oral sedation or nitrous oxide. Although both are very effective tools for moderately nervous patients, those two options do not allow highly anxious patients to achieve a level of relaxation that would enable them to ignore t to stressors in their environment.
Patients that are more susceptible to experiencing higher levels of distress can benefit from IV sedation. This technique allows patients to have dental treatment without being aware of their immediate surroundings or circumstance. Oftentimes, patients will have no specific recollection of the appointment. This approach makes the visit simple and easier for even our most nervous patients.
During your first consultation, our team will be happy to discuss the sedation options with you and help you plan the best course of action given your specific disposition and circumstances.
