In addition to nitrous oxide, the dental team at Downtown Dental Centre in St. Catharines offers moderate sedation as part of our sedation dentistry services. Moderate sedation is a wonderful option for adult patients who experience moderate anxiety. It comes in the form of an oral pill or liquid that will make you sleepy and help you relax. You will still be awake, but you will not feel at all nervous about the dental work about to be done. In fact, many of our patients become so comfortable that they can’t remember their dental appointment with us!
Our dentist may also add nitrous oxide to moderate sedation during your appointment to enhance your level of comfort. In order to be a candidate for moderate sedation, your overall health, as well as any mental or physical conditions you are battling, are important in order for the moderate sedation to successfully take effect. Our dentist will walk you thorough a medical history and physical assessment before proceeding with moderate sedation during your dental appointment with us. Certain ailments will require clearance from a physician before you can be approved for moderate sedation:
Downtown Dental Centres patients from St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Welland, Thorold and surrounding areas report feeling very relaxed and happy during their dental services or cosmetic dentistry appointment. Moderate sedation also makes time appear to fly by, making your appointment feel shorter than it actually is. You will require someone to drive you to and from your dental appointment, and you will also need to rest well over the 24 hours after your dental procedure has taken place.
