I’m nervous about coming to the dentist, what can you do to help me?

Many people suffer from anxiety preceding a dental visit. We are sympathetic to this and place no blame on the patient. We understand that it can be a stressful time, and offer several options to alleviate this anxiety. The easiest and shortest-lasting option is Nitrous Oxide. This unique gas, mixed with oxygen, calms the patient while the patient remains alert. One of the main benefits is that it leaves the body quickly and the patient is able to drive home and carry on as though no drug was administered. Few patients suffer any unwanted side effects, and most are pleased with the way it makes their dental visit go. If this is not enough for you, there are some oral medications that we can prescribe that will relieve deeper anxiety, but that require being driven to and from our office by another person. If you think you fall into this category, please let us know and we will determine if you are a candidate for these medications.
