At Alta Vista Laser Dental Centre in Ottawa, our dentist offers dental sedation to help make patients more comfortable during long procedures, and to calm anxious patients.
What is Dental Sedation?
At Alta Vista Laser Dental Centre, we do everything in our power to help our patients feel comfortable during dental procedures. In addition to offering nitrous oxide as a dental sedation option, we are committed to working at your pace, taking breaks when you need them, and providing calm reassurance as required.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
When inhaled through the mouth and nose, nitrous oxide calms patients even though they remain awake and able to communicate. Nitrous oxide also tends to increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex, lessen anxiety and make time pass more quickly.
