Your Saskatoon dental sedation options
If the thought of dental treatment makes you anxious there are options to help make your appointment a little easier.
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is one option. Most commonly used with children, nitrous oxide is a safe, effective way to manage anxiety during dental treatment. It will make you feel relaxed, sleepy and may have tingling in your hands and feet. You are aware of what is happening around you but may be a little forgetful and might not be able to remember the procedure afterwards.
Another form of sedation we offer at our clinic is oral sedation. We offer oral sedation for adults only. It is taken in pill form and is taken an hour before your appointment to allow for it to take effect. During the procedure, you will be awake but you will feel less anxious and might feel sleepy as it wears off. You are not able to drive or operate heavy machinery for the remainder of the day after receiving oral sedation so an adult must be present to pick you up following your appointment.
If you have any questions regarding the different types of sedation we offer please feel free to give our office a call.
Dental Exams, Cleaning & Prevention
A dental exam is critical to your ongoing oral health. A dental exam is the first step in determining overall oral health and allows your dentist to detect any early dental problems that might require oral surgery or other interventions later on.
Children’s Dentistry – Family Friendly
Good habits are formed early in life. Here at Circle Drive & 8th Street Dental in Saskatoon, we know that bringing your child in at an early age starts them on a path to proper dental hygiene and health for the rest of their lives. And we are always happy to welcome new patients!
Emergency Dental Care
Are you experiencing a persistent toothache? Or perhaps a filling has broken and you need it repaired? Don’t worry, we are here to help! We provide a full range of emergency dental services for Saskatoon and accept emergency appointments on short notice.
Fillings, Bondings, Root Canals & Extractions
Cavities are one of the most common dental problems that our patients experience. Bonding is a painless way to make minor repairs to teeth. Root canal treatment is an effective and safe treatment for teeth whose pulp has become inflamed or infected. In some cases, an extraction is needed when a tooth cannot be restored.
Crowns, Veneers, Bridges & Implants
If your tooth is damaged, a crown can be used to restore its shape, appearance and function. You may need a crown if you have a root canal, a large filling or a broken tooth.
Nightguards, Sportsguards & Snoring Appliances
Here at our Saskatoon dental clinic, we provide fittings for nightguards, sports guards, and other equipment that protects your teeth against nighttime clenching and grinding, sports injuries and snoring.
If the thought of a dentist’s appointment makes you anxious, we have options that can make your visit more comfortable. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is one option. Another form of sedation we offer at our clinic is oral sedation, for adults only.
