The looming fear of discomfort, noise or pain can trigger significant unease in young children and particularly nervous adults. Fortunately, Oasis Dental in Milton offers several safe and effective methods of sedation to minimize this anxiety.
Dr. Soordhar will mostly likely recommend conscious sedation via nitrous oxide or oral sedation. These can be administered very effectively and comfortably either in oral form or by way of inhalation.
Nitrous Oxide is a sweet smelling, nonirritating, colorless and breathable gas which has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. Nitrous oxide is perfectly safe the patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide. The patient is able to breathe independently and remain in control of all bodily functions.
