Anxious Patients

At Kent Street Dental Centre, we understand that for some of our patients, a visit to the dentist can cause fear and anxiety. Our friendly team can help put you at ease with a variety of sedation options.


Feeling Nervous?

We understand that you may hesitate to visit the dentist, or to contact a dental practice at all, if you feel nervous or anxious about dental appointments. Many people feel anxious due to uncertainty about their appointment, or as a result of a previous experience.

We can help.


Sedation Dentistry with Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas can be used alone or in combination with an oral sedative.

It provides patients at Kent Street Dental Centre with the ability to relax and unwind while receiving required dental services.

Nitrous oxide is a clear, odourless gas that when mixed with oxygen, which leaves patients with a warm, floating, almost euphoric sensation. 

Your dentist will customize the percentage of nitrous oxide for your individual needs to ensure that your dental appointment.

It has no lasting effects and if used without oral sedation, patients are able to drive after their appointment. Nitrous oxide is considered very safe and is even recommended for use in young children.

Contact us to discuss how we can make your visit to the dentist as comfortable as possible.
