At Riverview Dentistry, we understand that some patients may feel anxious or nervous when visiting the dentist. We offer sedation services and always strive to create a comfortable environment for each and every one of our patients.
You are not alone, and our dedicated team has helped many patients like yourself have a more positive and relaxed experience while visiting the dentist. We provide sedation services such as Oral Sedation and Nitrous Oxide to help you overcome your fears. We will do a thorough assessment to determine if one of these sedation options would work for you.
Nitrous Oxide is more commonly known as laughing gas. It can be used alone or in combination with an oral sedative. It is inhaled throughout the appointment and provides patients with the ability to relax and unwind while receiving dental care.
Nitrous oxide is a clear, odourless gas that when mixed with oxygen leaves the patients with a warm, floating, almost euphoric sensation.
Your dentist will customize the percentage of nitrous oxide for your individual needs to ensure that your dental appointment is as comfortable as possible.
It has no lasting effects, and if used without oral sedation, patients are able to drive after their appointment. Nitrous oxide is considered very safe and is even recommended for use in young children.
