Many Canadians experience fear and anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist. At our practice, we make a point of being laid-back, relaxed, and as calm as possible, and for anxious patients we have sedation options that can help.
We can prescribe anti-anxiety medication that you take before your appointment. The medication will relax you to the point where you’ll only be faintly aware of your surroundings. You’ll stay calm and won’t experience any pain during your treatment.
Because the sedative effect may still be present after your appointment you’ll need a drive home from our office.
Nitrous, or laughing gas, has been used as a dental sedative for decades. It’s safe, fast-acting, and it wears off quickly after your appointment.
Don’t let anxiety keep you from getting dental treatment. Give us a call and see how we can help you.
