Dental Anxiety

Anxious about going to the dentist?
Wondering if dental work is too painful or uncomfortable?

At Smiles Dental Aurora, our dentists understand the anxiety associated with going to the dentist for treatment. We offer nitrous oxide, otherwise known as "laughing gas", as an option for anxious patients who are looking for a stress-free appointment.

Nitrous Oxide is a safe and efficient sedation method that is commonly used during dental procedures, even for children. The patient simply breathes the gas through a mask placed over their nose, and within 30 seconds to 5 minutes, they will feel a very relaxed state. Some patients may experience numbness in their cheeks and gums.

Once the patient is properly sedated, our Aurora dentist can proceed with the dental treatment. After treatment, the patient will breathe pure oxygen for about 5 minutes to reverse the effects of the sedation. Unlike IV or general anaesthesia, the patient can usually leave the office independently.

If you're feeling anxious about going to the dentist, you don't have to avoid treatment. Our Aurora dentists are prepared to accommodate you and will ensure that you experience as little stress as possible during your appointment. If you have any concerns regarding dental anxiety or nitrous oxide, don't hesitate to ask one of our dentists at Smiles Dental Aurora today!
