Helping Make Dental Care Less Stressful

Dental sedation refers to a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you. 

At Wellington Dental Clinic, we do everything we can to help patients feel relaxed during their dental appointments and during surgical procedures.

In addition to offering sedation options, we will work at your pace, take breaks when you need them, and provide calm reassurance as needed.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous oxide is inhaled through the mouth and nose. It can calm patients while they remain awake and able to communicate. It also tends to lessen anxiety, increase pain threshold, reduce gag reflex and make time pass more quickly.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. It leaves you awake for the procedure, but produces a calming effect to significantly relax you.

We are accepting new patients! Don't hesitate to contact us and take the first step in achieving better oral health outcomes.
