In-Office Oral Moderate Sedation Dentistry in the Niagara Region
Dr. Michael D’Agostino, Dr. Peter Phillips, Dr. Luca Pagnotta and Dr. Andre Boermsa offer oral moderate sedation for those patients who are anxious having dental treatment. Oral moderate sedation uses a combination of nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) and a prescribed medication to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental treatment. Patients who undergo this sedation technique are continuously monitored by a pulse oximeter.
Patients wishing to have this treatment must first have a consultation with the performing dentist to discuss their medical history and current medications. Due to the medication used during oral sedation, patients will be unable to drive after their appointment. Arrangements for an escort to and from the appointment should be made.

Secondly, you must make an appointment to see your family doctor for a pre-op history and physical 2-3 weeks prior to your procedure. At that appointment, your doctor will fill out the yellow form in the page which also must be returned to the dental office.
