Timberlands Dental Care offers dental sedation in Red Deer for patients who are anxious or nervous about their procedures.
Our sedation services include:
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is an effective means to relax your anxious nerves during your procedure. Unlike the sedation that puts you to completely sleep, oral conscious sedation allows you to remain in a comfortable and relaxed conscious state during your procedure. You will need to ingest an oral sedative about an hour prior to your scheduled appointment. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, may also be prescribed to boost your comfort and relaxation.
Nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas, provides us with a quick and effective means to minimize pain and discomfort. It’s also great for promoting relaxation and comfort for patients who are scared about their procedure. The patient is given a face mask to wear which allows them to inhale the gas. Within a few short minutes, you will experience a state of calm. The amount of nitrous oxide that you receive is controlled by the dentist to ensure your safety and comfort.
