Why Choose Hamilton Lakes Dentistry for Sedation Dentistry?

  • Two Effective Sedation Methods – Nitrous Oxide & Oral Conscious Sedation
  • Compassionate & Caring Dental Team
  • State-of-the-Art Facility with Updated Technology

Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is administered via a prescribed pill that causes you to become fully relaxed by the time you reach our dentist’s chair. When ingested, you will notice, in time, that you become more at ease, calm, and maybe even euphoric. This allows our team to complete the necessary procedure(s) to improve your oral health while keeping you free of anxiety and fear. After treatment is complete, you will need to have someone escort you home, as it will take some time for the effects to wear off.

Nitrous Oxide Dental Sedation

With nitrous oxide sedation, also known as laughing gas, this solution is administered through a nasal mask. Inhaling the nitrous oxide mixture causes you to feel almost sleepy and warm. You will remain relaxed and comfortable throughout your visit but remain cognizant to respond to cues. When finished, the gas is turned off, the mask is removed, and in no time at all, you will feel like your regular self. You can then drive yourself home or back to work to resume normal activities.
