Dental Anxiety

Feeling anxious about going to the dentist can prevent you from getting the care you need. It can also set you up for existing oral health problems evolving into more complex issues.

The best way to enjoy a relaxing, minimally invasive experience is to talk to our gentle dentists about sedation options.

Nitrous Oxide:

Nitrous oxide is also known as happy gas, which is blended with oxygen and is inhaled through a face mask at the time of treatment, so you feel calm. You will even be aware and can react to your dentist, but you will not experience any fear. After the procedure is complete, the oxygen mask is taken off for a quick recovery.

Oral Medications:
Medications may be given to help you relax before the procedure starts. In some instances, we may prescribe medication before your visit, to keep you away from stress when you come.
Sleep dentistry:
If you do not like to be aware at the time of treatment, we provide sleep dentistry using general anesthesia. This is managed by a registered anesthetist, who will work in conjunction with your dentist and you will be staying under constant supervision. Sleep dentistry is considered to be a highly effective treatment that surely allows comfort for patients. This is an appropriate solution for those patients who become fearful while undergoing extensive treatment such as root canal or dental implants.
