Dentist in Burlington, ON offers sedation methods for those with mild to severe dental anxieties

When dental anxieties get in the way of getting the treatment you need, Dr. Swati Khanna encourages you to learn more about sedation dentistry. Whether your anxieties are mild or severe, our team in Burlington, ON has a solution for you. We offer many ways in which we can help patients relax before and during their dental appointment.

  • Nitrous oxide – one of the first methods of sedation is nitrous oxide, which may also be called “laughing gas.” This is an odorless gas that is administered to patients through the nose. It is best for patients with mild to moderate anxieties, as it can provide almost instant relaxation from start to finish. Patients are given oxygen when their treatment is complete to reverse the effects of the gas and allow them to drive to work, school, or home.
  • IV sedation – another method of sedation is IV sedation. This method delivers sedation intravenously and offers a deeper sedation than nitrous oxide. The sedation can be reversed by removing the IV. The vital signs of the patient are monitored throughout their treatment to ensure the appropriate amount of sedative is administered.
  • Full sedation – for those with severe anxieties, full sedation may be best. Full sedation allows the patient to be asleep throughout their appointment. Patients utilizing full sedation will need to work with a friend or relative for transportation to and from our office. Not only is this method best for patients with severe anxieties, but it can also be used for patients having a wide range of treatments done at one time in our practice.

Dentistry at LaSalle - reviews

"Great first experience with this clinic. I've had a few terrible experiences at dentists and this time I left pain free. I had to have a filling redone. The first time it was done it was at another clinic and I had a month's worth of pain after. Today, I had to have it redone. No pain after the freezing wore off. Clinic staff are friendly and polite as well as both dentists and hygienists I saw."
