Dental Comfort Control

Dental Oral Sedation

At Stonebrook Dental, North York family dentist Dr. Nubia Diaz and her team go out of their way to make each patient feel completely at ease and comfortable during their dental visit.

What is Dental Oral Sedation?

Sedation is a technique that aims to pharmacologically alter your central nervous system (CNS) to produce an overall calm and relaxed (sedated) sensation. Sedative drugs (tranquillizers, depressants, sleeping pills, anxiolytics, etc.) are used to induce sedation and can be administered in a variety of ways. In the past, IV sedation was predominantly used to produce a sedated effect in dentistry. Today, there are alternatives available for sedation dentistry patients. Oral sedation offers a “no needle” approach that many patients find more accommodating than the traditional IV method.

What is Dental Gas/Nitrous Gas?

Dental gas or nitrous gas which can be used in our dental practice offers the option of relaxation while undergoing dental treatment. If you are nervous, dental gas can help you relax and after a short recovery time you are able to drive home after your appointment.

Besides pharmaceutical approaches, we provide in-office relaxation comforts such as blankets, overhead tv, comfort pillows.

Our appointments are booked so as to ensure your appointment is rushed and that you may take breaks during your dental service as needed.
