What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation encompasses a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during long dental procedures. Our dentists can help assess whether a dental sedation option is right for you.
At Mount Pearl Dental, we try to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their appointments. In addition to sedation options, your dental team will work at your pace, take pauses if and when you need them, and provide calm reassurance.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
We provide nitrous oxide as an option for dental sedation at Mount Pearl Dental. The medication is breathed in through the nose and mouth, helping calm the patient although they are awake and able to communicate. Nitrous oxide can also help lessen anxiety, raise your pain threshold and reduce your gag reflex.
