Downtown Toronto Sedation Dentistry
We offer three modalities of sedation for your comfort: Nitrous oxide (laughing gas), Oral sedation, IV sedation…
Nitrous oxide (‘laughing gas”): fa safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. It is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. Best not to eat or drink anything for a minimum of two hours prior to your appointment. No need to have an escort to take you home, as it is out of your system once the procedure is complete and the mask is removed.
Oral sedation: dentistry is a medical procedure involving the administration of oral sedative drugs, generally to facilitate a dental procedure and reduce patients fear and anxiety related to the experience. Patient must be accompanied by and escort home, as well no eating or drinking for 8 hours prior to procedure, except for light sips of water for a minimum of two hours prior to procedure.
IV sedation (Harbour Dental Location Only): For simple oral surgery procedures to more involved procedures such as removal of wisdom teeth and placement of dental implants. Medications are administered through an intravenous line (I.V.). IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on. The drugs used for IV sedation produce either partial or full memory loss (amnesia) for the period of time when the drug first kicks in until it wears off. As a result, time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not recall much or any of what happened.
