Sedation Dentistry in New Westminster

If you feel nervous and anxious about visiting the dentist, it may surprise you to learn that you are not alone. It is not uncommon for patients to experience dental anxiety, which is why we practice sedation dentistry for your comfort.


Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous oxide or laughing gas is commonly used to help both adults and children to relax during dental treatment. The gas is administered using a mask placed over the nose, and the relaxing effects are felt almost immediately. Once the mask is removed, the effects of the gas wear off.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is taken in pill form, usually about an hour before treatment begins. Oral sedation can help you to relax more deeply and has an amnesiac effect, so you forget the details of your visit. The effects of oral sedation are longer lasting, so we recommend being accompanied to and from your appointment.

IV Sedation Dentistry

IV sedation is administered through an IV line. This method of sedation promotes a higher level of relaxation and causes many patients to fall asleep; after waking, they have little memory of the treatment. This type of sedation is ideal for patients with extreme dental anxiety.
