At our Kanata practice, we know that a visit to the dentist can cause anxiety in some patients. We offer sedation dental services for our nervous patients to help them relax during their appointments.
Dental anxiety and phobia are extremely common. If you are avoiding seeing the dentist because of anxiety and fear, at Hazeldean Dental Group we can help you gain control of your oral health with Nitrous Oxide Sedation. Do not let fear of the dentist get in the way of a healthy, beautiful smile!
Who is a candidate for sedation dentistry?
Our goal is to provide your dental care without fear, pain or anxiety. If you present one or more of the following conditions, dental sedation can help you.
Fear and Anxiety
Nearly half of people with dental problems avoid dental care because of their fears and anxiety. Modern, safe anaesthesia techniques allow the fearful patient to have dental procedures accomplished without the anxiety associated with dentistry. Anxiety can even be triggered by noises, smells and tastes associated with dental care.
Low pain threshold or very sensitive teeth
Many people perceive pain differently than others. Some experience the inability to get numb. With general anaesthesia and sedation techniques, these patients will have the perception of pain altered and will be virtually pain free during the treatment.
