At Skymark Smile Centre, we want to help you to relax away your dental appointment.
- Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) - While Nitrous Oxide doesn’t actually make most people laugh, it creates a very pleasant, relaxed and floating feeling that will alleviate any anxiety about the procedure. Due to the fact that all of the Nitrous Oxide is flushed from your system with Oxygen at the end of your appointment, you are able to drive home and do not need to be accompanied to your appointment.
- Oral Sedation - We can offer a pill to help you to completely relax during your dental appointment. With this type of sedation, you will require a ride home and someone to stay with you for the remainder of the day, as you may be sleepy or groggy for several hours afterwards.
- IV Sedation - IV Sedation provides a deeper sedation than the oral and NO2 options. Most patients report that they felt as though they slept through their entire appointment and have very little memory of the procedures. IV sedation is a type of conscious sedation, so you are still able to respond to the doctor during the appointment. With this type of sedation, you will require someone to come with you for your appointment, to provide a ride home and stay with you for the remainder of the day, as you may be sleepy or groggy for several hours afterwards.
