  • Are you apprehensive about going to the dentist?
  • Have you put off dental care for years because of dental anxieties?
  • Would you enjoy having all of your dental needs taken care of and afterwards remember very little about your visit?

You are not alone. In fact, approximately 40 million Americans avoid the dentist because of fear and anxiety, according to the Academy of General Dentistry.

Our team is here to help you overcome your dental anxiety and regain your confidence about visiting the dentist. In our personalized approach, we offer several ways to assist you in receiving treatment while remaining relaxed.

Nitrous Oxide-N2O (Laughing Gas)

This allows you to relax during your treatment, and resume your normal activities after your appointment!

Nitrous oxide is best suited for cases of mild to moderate anxiety and is the most frequently used method. Nitrous oxide  is administered through a demand-valve inhaler over your nose that releases gas when you inhale through your nose. You will feel the effects within minutes and these effects are completely gone within minutes of the gas being turned off after your treatment.

During your visit, we can discuss these options with you and create your personalized treatment plan for a relaxing and worry free dental care experience.

Whether you require a single filling or are looking for a complete smile makeover, anxiety-free dentistry can help you achieve optimum dental health in the most comfortable way possible.
