Dental Sedation, Whitecourt Dentist

What is Dental Sedation?

Dental sedation involves a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you. 

At Valley Centre Dental Clinic, we make every effort to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. In addition to offering sedation options, we will provide calm reassurance as required, work at your pace, and take breaks when you need them.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Patients inhale nitrous oxide through the mouth and nose. The medication calms patients even though they remain awake and able to communicate. It also tends to reduce gag reflex, increase pain threshold, ease anxiety and make time pass more quickly.

Oral Sedation

Your dentist prescribes oral sedatives in liquid or pill form. The medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. It leaves you awake for the procedure, but produces a calming effect to significantly relax you.
