Providing Nitrous Oxide and Oral Conscious Sedation during Treatments

To improve patient comfort during a variety of treatments, we provide oral conscious sedation and nitrous sedation. For extensive procedures, such as wisdom teeth extraction, we offer patients IV sedation. With a variety of options available, we can tailor your appointment around your treatment and your comfort level.

The benefits of sedation dentistry:

- Relaxed physical state
- Control the choice of sedation option
- Enhanced comfort
- May not recall procedure, but is coherent during treatment

Our Stratford dentists and staff are dedicated to providing compassionate, friendly chairside manner. Before your procedure, we go over sedation options, which will best fit your treatment.

Post Sedation Care

Oral sedation is taken an hour before you come in for your procedure and doesn’t require a loved one to bring you to and from the practice. Unlike oral sedation, which is taken via pill form, nitrous oxide is an inhaled sedative --- as it is also known as laughing gas. Patients may find themselves woozy but coherent during treatment and are able to drive themselves to and from the practice. 

In case of procedures like wisdom teeth extraction, sedatives are administered intravenously, and patients express they’re in a twilight sleep, but are able to respond to verbal commands.  IV sedation requires someone to bring you to and from your appointment and is recommended to stay with you for the remainder of the day.
