Why Choose Us?
Are you anxious, stressed, or have a severe fear of the dentist? You’re not alone. Dentophobia is a very common phobia in children and adults alike. But don’t worry, we don’t take it personally! We understand that strange and loud drilling sounds and other weird tools can freak people out. And yes, sometimes the scents are rather weird too!
Dental phobia is when people are extremely wary about feeling pain, seeing or feeling needles, worried about the numbing process, and overall afraid of the smell and sounds, particularly drills. This fear could easily be a result of a previous experience that wasn’t very nice or by someone who has very sensitive teeth. Whatever the reason, we’re here to help and make you as comfortable as possible during your visit.
What Is Nitrous Oxide?
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen and administered through a breathing mask. It doesn’t put you to sleep, but rather relaxes you throughout your visit. It takes effect in a few minutes and some patients feel as though their arms and legs are heavy as they sink back into the chair and let their stress melt away. You’ll still be able to talk and answer questions during your dental procedure.
Once your appointment is over, the mask will be removed and you’ll feel back to normal in no time and be able to drive home safely.
The reason it’s also referred to as laughing gas is that it reacts with the cell receptors in your brain that affect how you feel. Therefore, it can make you feel happy, carefree, and sometimes giddy.

Does Nitrous Oxide Smell?
Though it is colourless, it is often described as having a slightly sweet odour.
We know that having a fear of the dentist is quite common, and we promise our feelings aren’t hurt. With drills and weird smells, it can make any patient feel uncomfortable. Sedation is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety without being put to sleep during most dental procedures. Even if you’d like it administered during your general cleaning, we’d be happy to do so. And yes, sedation is even safe for children who are anxious too! But if you have any more questions on the matter, please feel free to call our amazing and helpful staff over the phone at 416-865-9494.
