Are you are overly anxious about going through a dental procedure? Dr. Yolanda Cruz offers sedation dentistry at our Toronto dental practice, using a sweet-smelling colorless gas made up of nitrogen and oxygen. We administer the gas through a mask that fits snugly over your nose, shortly before your dental procedure begins. As you inhale the gas, it has a calming, relaxing effect.
It is a safe and well established method to help patients deal with dental anxiety and stress. The gas has a comforting effect even though you remain awake, in control, and with the ability to communicate. It also helps to lessen anxiety, increase a patient’s pain threshold, reduce an overactive gag reflex and makes time appear to pass more quickly. As a result, this gas is often used in pediatric dentistry.
Don’t put off your dental procedure any longer, dental sedation can put you at ease! Call Dr. Yolanda Cruz Dentistry today: Downtown office 416-595-5490 or Etobicoke office 647-370-5950.
