Are you scared of the dentist? Don’t worry, you’re not alone – fear of dentists is very common. Going to the dentist is not fun, as dentists poke and prod a sensitive area of the body. Luckily, dentists are better trained than ever today and possess tools and techniques to minimize discomfort. You should look for a dentist who understands that you are anxious and is willing to work with you to increase your comfort. Whether this means using laughing gas to help you relax, or avoiding injections by using electronically delivered anaesthesia, there are a number of solutions that can help you more at ease with the dental process. After all, even if you’re nervous, the benefits of going to the dentist will definitely outweigh the cons.

“This gas, which is administered by a professional with dental assistant trainingand inhaled by the patient through a face mask, helps feeling relaxed. It’s a common form of sedation used in the dental office, as the effects wear off quickly once the gas is turned off. This is the only form of sedation under which patients can drive after the procedure, or even eat food within a 12-hour period of the procedure. In general, with anesthesia, the patient can’t drive right after the procedure, or eat after midnight the night before the procedure.”
