My goal is to provide you with comprehensive care, from general to cosmetic dentistry and everything in between, all within a central location: our office.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry

If you are someone who dreads going to the dentist or has a genuine fear of the dental office, sedation or sleep dentistry may be for you. Depending on the severity of your fear, we can offer several options.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is the mildest form of sedation. It is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your mouth and nose. It helps you feel relaxed during treatment but is not intended to put you to sleep. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the treatment has ended and the mask is removed, so you can leave the office on your own without an escort.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation refers to a sedative in the form of a pill that is prescribed to help you feel at ease. It is a step up from Nitrous Oxide in that you will be in a more relaxed state but still conscious during treatment. Because the effects of oral sedation last for several hours, you will need someone to drive you home after your appointment.

IV Sedation

As the term implies, IV Sedation is a sedative administered intravenously and puts you in a complete state of relaxation. Although you are awake and can respond to Dr. Dhaliwal, you will have little or no memory of your treatment.

You may feel alert soon after the IV medication is stopped, however, you should not drive or operate heavy machinery for 24 hours after your appointment. The effects of the sedative will last for most of the day so it’s important to arrange for a ride home and for someone to stay with you until you are fully alert.

Although sedation is primarily used for patients that are fearful of the dentist, it is also a great option for those that have difficulty getting numb or for those patients that have busy schedules and need to complete treatment in as few visits as possible.

If you would like more information about Sedation Dentistry, come in for a COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION to discuss your options.
