We understand that nobody really likes going to the dentist. For those who are especially anxious, Dr. Rattray has received certification to provide different levels of in-office sedation, including the following options:
As simple as wearing a nose mask during treatment. Requires no eating at least 2 hours prior to treatment, but a patient is free to drive to and from the appointment on their own.
Requires the injestion of a pill prior to the appointment. Requires no eating at least 8 hours prior to the appointment, plus the patient needs to be accompanied by a responsible adult both before and after the appointment, plus they are unable to drive for the entire day.
Combination of oral sedation and nitrous oxide
Follows the same requirements as oral sedation above, but is used to ‘top-up’ the sedation level if required.
We won’t let your anxiety get in the way of optimal dental health!
