Totem Lake sedation dentistry is a family practice where all are welcome, and that means having to occasionally facilitate a situation with the special needs and fears of those patients who do not want to visit a dentist. That is why we offer sedation dental care with mild to moderate options that we are happy to explain and outline to ease your discomfort.
This is sometimes called laughing gas and is a mild sedation option that helps patients relax with a subtle floating feeling. The mild tingling and numbness experienced in the fingertips and lips last only as long as the gas is in use, allowing patients to quickly recover and drive home after the appointment.
This is a more moderate level of sedation than nitrous oxide that reduces anxiety surrounding dental care. This longer-lasting sedation creates a deeper feeling of relaxation in the mind and body. We do require you to bring a friend or family member to your appointment to drive you home afterward.
