Sedation Dentistry in Oakville, ON
At Jacobs & Associates, we offer dental sedation for patients who have trouble receiving dental treatment due to anxiety or other concerns. Our unique sedation dentistry services near Oakville, ON, and beyond are tailored to each patient's needs so they can stay relaxed and comfortable throughout their visit.
We offer the following dental sedation services at our dental office in Oakville:
Oral Conscious Sedation
Jacobs & Associates Dental Office offers conscious sedation to help anxious patients relax during their treatment. This form of sedation is taken before the procedure and can be used as a mild or moderate sedative. With mild sedation, patients feel drowsy; for moderate sedation, patients may fall into a light sleep.
Laughing gas, or inhalation sedation, is a form of light sedation. We offer laughing gas to young patients and those with mild anxiety in the dental chair. With this form of sedation, you can expect to be fully relaxed while still fully awake and able to follow instructions. Our dentists control the amount of gas to ensure maximum safety and comfort.
Intravenous (IV) sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, is offered to patients with more severe dental anxiety. Patients who qualify for this treatment are typically those with special healthcare needs or those who are set to undergo oral surgery or prolonged treatment. IV sedation does not put the patient fully to sleep but instead uses anti-anxiety medication administered directly into the veins to help promote relaxation. Most patients experience temporary memory loss. Our dentists will adjust the medication as needed during treatment.
