you can relax into dentistry with your sedation dentist near Oakville
While dentistry is designed to help people of all ages enjoy healthy, attractive smiles, there are millions for whom a visit to the dentist is all but impossible. Understanding the dramatic effect the smile and oral health in general has on wellbeing is only so helpful in getting an anxious patient to schedule professional care. Unfortunately, the intensity of anxiety can be stronger than one's desire to eliminate a toothache or prevent future dental problems. To assist her patients, Dr. Tuli of Burloak Centre Dentistry has incorporated sedation services into her comfortable dental practice.
With sedation, visits with your dentist in the Oakville area can be far more pleasant than you ever imagined. The use of specific sedative medication in a safe, controlled manner can help even the most fearful dental patient complete treatments that will improve the look of the smile along with oral health. Sedatives do not necessarily put one to sleep. What a specifically prescribed medication will do is blunt the stimulation to the central nervous system. Provided with an inhaled, ingested, or intravenous medication, our patients will not be impacted by the sights, smells, and sounds of the dental office, making their visit incredibly pleasant.
In addition to easing the general dental experience, sedation also works alongside the local anesthetic used to achieve complete comfort. For more than a century, nitrous oxide has been used not only as a sedative but also as a complementary pain reliever during medical and dental procedures. In combination, our administration of local numbing medication, our gentle technique, and the right sedative for the individual patient achieve the level of dental care we believe every patient deserves.
Our sedation services are tailored to the individual patient and dosed very carefully to achieve the desired effect. Inhaled sedation involves the continual delivery of nitrous oxide and oxygen throughout the necessary procedure. What many patients like about this form of sedation is the fast-action of the medication, both before and after treatment. Due to the quickness with which the effects of nitrous oxide fade, patients may safely drive to and from dental appointments when they choose this option.
Dental care does not have to equate to stress and anxiety. Let our team show you how productive and pain-free dentistry can be. Call Burloak Centre Dentistry at 905.581.4436.
