Relax During Your Dental Appointments
At Saddletowne Dental in Northeast Calgary, we offer dental sedation to make patients more comfortable during long procedures, and to calm anxious patients.
Types of Sedation
We offer the following sedation options for our patients. Your dentist will discuss your needs with you, and recommend the sedation option that would best suit your needs.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide is a gas that is inhaled through the mouth and nose. It calms patients, decreases anxiety, reduces gag reflexes, and makes time seem to pass quicker.
Oral sedatives are pills or liquids prescribed by your dentist. The medication is taken orally in advance of the dental procedure and produces a calming, relaxing effect.

At Saddletowne Dental, we do everything we can to help anxious patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. If you are feeling nervous, please talk to us about your concerns. We are happy to work at your pace, take breaks when you need them, and provide calm reassurance as needed.
