Sedation Dentistry in Ottawa

Offering Peace of Mind for Every Dental Patient

As dentists, community members, and family members, we understand that taking care of the mental aspects of treatment is just as important as taking care of physical health. The thought of invasive dental work can be scary for some people due to anxiety, medical conditions or other health reasons. Sedation dentistry in Ottawa offers an effective way to provide thorough dental care for every patient who needs it.

Sedation Dentistry using nitrous oxide

Soothe Anxiety Before Your Next Appointment

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) is a common sedation technique for patients who experience fear or anxiety during dental procedures. This sedative is delivered through a mask that releases a colourless and odourless nitrous oxide gas to relax patients quickly.

Oral Sedation for Complex Dental Procedures

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation refers to an oral pill prescribed in advance, which we will typically instruct you to take about an hour before your dental procedure. The effects of oral sedation are stronger and longer-lasting than nitrous oxide sedation, so patients will need to arrange a ride home from the dental office after an oral sedation dentistry procedure.

IV Sedation

What is IV Sedation?

Dr. Silver is licensed to provide moderate conscious intravenous (IV) sedation. You are breathing on your own and do not have a tube down your throat.

The goal of the sedation is to significantly reduce anxiety, helping to achieve an extremely relaxed state. You are responsive to commands, but have no memory of the surgery.

Intravenous (IV) sedation is NOT appropriate for those with anxiety around having an IV started or patients who want to be put completely to sleep. You would require a general anesthetic to achieve this.
