To make your dental appointment as comfortable as possible, Yam Dental is equipped to offer different choices to reduce your anxiety.

Local anesthesia (freezing) is usually administered to numb or freeze an area so the dental work can be completed painlessly. This is the most common way to relieve any discomfort. A topical numbing gel is applied to the area and later, local anesthesia is injected into the area.

Nitrous oxide or laughing gas can be given to calm and numb the whole body. It is safe and will relieve discomfort and anxiety. The nitrous oxide works only when you are breathing in it, and all effects will be cleared of your body after discontinuing its use for 15 minutes or more. Laughing gas can be safely and regularly used for both adults and children making their dental treatment much more enjoyable.

General anesthesia and deep sedation can be provided for very nervous patients who want to be asleep during their dental treatment. It is for suitable for patients who have high anxiety, are very nervous of dental treatment, or those who are allergic to all local anaesthetics (freezing).

Feel free to contact us at (905) 836-0836 for a free consultation to discuss difference options of anesthesia that may be suitable for you.
