At River City Dental in Kamloops, we take patient comfort and safety seriously. We offer the following sedation options to help ensure your dental procedure is a pleasant one:
Dr. Vandepeear has been trained to provide monitored oral sedation.
During this process the patient remains conscious but has a very relaxed dental experience. It is not uncommon for patients to feel so relaxed that they fall asleep during their visit! By monitoring your vital signs throughout your appointment, we ensure that you are safely relaxed at all times.
Nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) is a safe and effective way to reduce anxiety.
It is administered through a mask placed over the nose. Patients breathe normally through their nose to experience the relaxing effect of the odourless gas. It is safe to use with children and adults.
