Many patients have difficulty getting themselves here for various reasons.  If you are looking for a more comfortable way to get your dental treatment done,  consider trying nitrous oxide.  At the downtown practice of Dr. Lenny Slepchik, you can learn more about it and see if it would help you during your dental visits.

What is nitrous oxide sedation?

Nitrous sedation is a safe and effective way to help you feel more relaxed during dental procedures. Dr. Lenny Slepchik will carefully monitor you throughout the process; you will be able to return to work and all your normal activities immediately. This allows our patients to feel more comfortable prior to and during their visit, as we reserve it for you when booking your dental appointments.

How does nitrous oxide work?

Nitrous oxide is an odorless and colourless gas. When inhaled through the nose using a special facemask, it enters the bloodstream and works immediately. You may feel lightheaded or a tingling sensation within minutes. It is as though you are at a concert , if you are listening to music from your phone at the same time.  The gas will help you feel more relaxed and can even make you forget what is actually going on.  In fact, some patients fall asleep because they are so calm.  You can speak with Dr. Slepchik  if you wish throughtout the appointment.

What are the benefits of having nitrous oxide sedation?

A main benefit of using nitrous oxide is that it works quickly.  Nitrous oxide has very few side effects and is considered a very safe option for sedation.

If you think that nitrous oxide would help you during your next dental procedure, discuss it with Dr. Lenny Slepchik.  Contact our office to schedule a consultation by calling 514-875-7971 or emailing our front office team at [email protected]  We welcome new and returning patients to our downtown Montreal dental practice.
