Support for Anxious Patients

If you have anxiety about visiting the dentist there are many ways that we can help. At River Oaks Dental, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) as well as oral sedation to help you through your dental treatment.


Afraid of the dentist? We can help.

Your comfort is important to us. We know that for many people, a trip to the dentist's office can cause anxiety. This is why we offer nitrous oxide sedation for patients who would like to help manage their anxiety.

We will listen to your concerns, and help you manage your anxiety at our dental office. Our team of compassionate, dedicated professionals will help guide you through each and every appointment so you are comfortable.

Sedation Options For Anxious Dental Patients, Oakville Dentist

Is Nitrous Oxide right for me?

Laughing gas, or Nitrous oxide, is given as a sedative for patients during dental appointments.

We will place the mask over your nose and breathe in. Since the gas is almost odourless gas, patients usually find this very comfortable.

If you are feeling uneasy about a dental procedure, speak to our caring and concerned team at any time. We will be pleased to discuss your options and help you to make the best decision for you. 

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a safe and effective way to manage dental anxiety.

Oral sedation provides helpful support for our anxious patients by reducing anxiety to a manageable level. This type of sedation can also be combined with nitrous oxide to provide a very complete treatment for your dental anxiety.

If your dentist agrees that sedation is right for you, we do ask that someone drives you home prior.
