Relieving Dental AnxietyRelieving Dental Anxiety at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript
Dr. Rose is very caring and attentive to my needs and my concerns when it comes to her office and the treatment that I'm having done. I told them ahead of time that I had some dental phobias and they've always gone out of their way to make sure I'm very comfortable, and so I appreciate that a lot. Then, of course, the work they do is also very well done. They do my checkups here and my cleanings, and then also, I've had some fillings done, an extraction, and whitening. They told me that the store-bought products would not help, specifically my case, as well as what they have because the concentration is a lot higher in their products as well as they fit a custom mold to my teeth, instead of the strips that would not go into all the grooves of every individual tooth. It's only been a couple weeks but people have noticed and they're very happy for me, yes. I tell everyone about how comfortable I am here and just how kind everyone is. I can finally show my teeth now, they've done that for me.

Nitrous oxide is an inhaled gas that has been used for decades in dentistry to help reduce fear and anxiety and has proven to be a successful means of achieving anxiety reduction. Your vital signs are monitored during the appointment to ensure a fully safe and comfortable experience.
Nitrous oxide is administered incrementally to achieve the most effective dose for you during your visit. Once the procedure is complete, the sedative effects wear off rapidly and allow you to resume your normal activities.
