Sedation Dentistry in Toronto

At Dr. Josie Marciello Dentistry, we understand that many patients are anxious when they have to visit the dentist, and we want to accommodate those patients as best we can. For patients who experience dental anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry to make your visit as stress-free and comfortable as possible.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a sedative often used in dentistry. The gas is administered via a mask and takes effect within three minutes. Nitrous oxide will alleviate anxiety but will leave you conscious. It moves quickly through your bloodstream and is easily flushed out with oxygen, so you will be able to drive home following your appointment.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation designed to keep you relaxed during dental procedures. You will remain awake after taking an oral sedative but may feel sleepy. When you arrive at your appointment, you will be given an oral sedative. It may take up to an hour to feel its effects. You will need a family member or friend to drive you home following the appointment.
