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 & 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.
