Getting Past One’s
Fear of Dentistry

If you tend to get nervous or feel anxious when you’re at (or even thinking about) the dentist’s office, you’re not alone. “Dentophobia” is a real thing, and it’s not uncommon across Canadian society. Even the thought of getting a tooth filled, having root canal or other dental procedure is enough to elevate the heart rate and trigger a fight-or-flight response in many people. But it can have consequences in the form of putting off or avoiding dental treatment, generating a domino effect and a vicious circle for your health.

It’s perfectly natural to have this phobia, and one should not feel ashamed about it. The important thing is to be able to get past the fear or anxiety associated with certain dental treatments, rather than allowing dentophobia to cause oral health issues. That’s why we offer our patients sedation dentistry in Stittsville here at Warmstone Family Dentistry. It’s a safe and proven means of enabling patents to feel calm and more relaxed during dental procedures.

nitrous oxide at dental clinic

Nitrous Oxide & IV Sedation: Different Levels of Relaxation

We feature two forms of sedation dentistry: Nitrous oxide (a.k.a. “laughing gas”) as well as IV sedation. Both are safe, proven, time-tested methods of sedation that have helped millions of patients around the world get through more complicated dental treatments, and we are pleased to offer both here at our Stittsville dental clinic.

Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask, and very soon the patient feels less inhibitions and a lower amount of anxiety, becoming more comfortable with his or her surroundings and the dental procedure taking place. IV sedation, meanwhile, makes the dental patient fall into a deeper state of relaxation, almost asleep, and requires you to get a ride home as the effects can last longer. To find out more about sedation dentistry in Stittsville and to see whether it’s right for your upcoming dental procedure, contact us today.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of getting a root canal?
The purpose of a root canal treatment is to save the natural tooth. If the natural tooth is able to be saved, it is a more desirable option for your health and more financially friendly in the long-run. Alternative methods involve extractions or implants that can end up being more invasive and costly if they require follow-up appointments and procedures.

Contact our clinic today to learn more about why a root canal might be the best option for you.

How do I know if I need a root canal?
Root canal procedures are needed when a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. That being said, some common symptoms you might be feeling if you need a root canal are:

  • Severe tooth pain and/or tooth sensitivity that worsens over time
  • Swollen of tender gums near the infected area and bad breath 
  • Puss-filled pimple around the gum 
  • Abscess in the jawbone 
  • Darkening of the tooth

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, please contact Warmstone Family Dentistry so that our team can assess whether you are in need of a root canal procedure.

What are CEREC Dental Implants?
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) dental implants are the latest of dental technology which combine 3D tech with CAD-CAM engineering. With the help of CEREC, dentists are able to offer same-day restorations for patients. CEREC implants are able to be designed, prepared, and milled all while you are at the dentists. CEREC dental implants remove the need for messy impressions, as well as temporary restorations between visits. CEREC dental implants are metal-free, highly accurate, and super convenient. If you are interested in getting CEREC dental implants, contact us today!
Can smokers get dental implants?
At Warmstone Family Dentistry, we highly recommend that our patients quit smoking as it is harmful not only to your oral health, but your health in general. With that said, most smokers are eligible for dental implants. If you are in good general health and have not experienced significant bone loss in your jaw, you are likely eligible for dental implants. As a general rule of thumb, if you are healthy enough to have a tooth pulled, you are healthy enough to receive dental implants.
When are dental implants recommended?
If you have a missing tooth because of an injury, disease, or tooth decay, and have sufficient jawbone, dental implants are recommended. Dental implants provide a longer-lasting solution to tooth loss and are much stronger, allowing for patients to resume their normal eating habits when compared to dental bridges. Simply put, if you have experienced tooth loss and have the jawbone to support an implants, we recommend getting them.
