Sedation Dentistry

If you are feeling stressed about coming in to see us, please ask for ways we can help.  Feel relaxed while receiving the care you need.

Do you feel anxious about dental procedures? At Riviera Dental Centre, in the Ottawa South, we can ease your anxiety with sedation dentistry.

Oral Sedation

With the oral sedation option, your dentist will prescribe you a pill or pills to be taken before your appointment to allow you to feel calm and relaxed.  We will ask you to bring a friend or a family member to accompany you home following the procedure.  This method is easy and effective in a lot of cases.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing gas)

Nitrous Oxide is a popular form of sedation that is provided at the Riviera Dental Centre. We will ask you to breathe in a small amount of nitrous oxide through a mask that covers your nose.  This will relax you, allowing us to treat you without making you feel anxious.  It is safe and effective for both adults and children.
