Sedation Dentistry Ajax

Comfort for Your Dental Anxiety

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous oxide sedation helps control your dental anxiety that is common during dental procedures. Your Ajax dentist, Dr. Shields, understands your fear and provides a comfortable sedation solution during your dental treatment.

We understand that you can choose to delay your necessary dental treatment because of your fear. Your dental health is essential to your overall health and we want to remove every barrier in the most relaxing and comfortable way.

Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is odorless and provides you with a mild, calming sedation. Following treatment when using this sedation method, you will be able to function and drive.

Laughing gas is also a safe and very effective choice for your child’s dental procedures. This sedation option can often eliminate the need for local anesthetic during your child’s treatment.

Contact our Ajax dental office about your dental anxiety and ask us about sedation options.
