A trip to the dentist can feel like a dream
Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry is a procedure where the patient is medicated in order to feel relaxed if they are anxious or nervous. It is also used for certain procedures such as wisdom teeth extractions. The patient can either be semi-conscious or unconscious during procedures. We use a variety of options for sedation dentistry in Hamilton.
Oral sedation comes in the form of pills that are taken before the procedure. It leaves the patient feeling relaxed and worry-free.
IV sedation is another form of sedation dentistry employed by The Old Villa Dental Center. With this option, anaesthesia is injected into a patient’s blood stream. The patient feels drowsy, but is still able to interact with their dentist and other staff.
Commonly referred to as ‘laughing gas,’ this form of anaesthesia leaves the patient in a relaxed state. The gas is administered by placing a mask over the patient’s mouth and nose. It usually takes effect in anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes.
