Many people don’t look forward to going to the dentist. Are you, or someone you love, one of the 15% of people who experience dread when it comes to their appointment at their Forest Hill dentist?
Dental fear can be due to a previous bad experience, challenging developmental or anxiety disorders, an intellectual disability, or simply fear of the unknown. No matter the cause, at Brush Floss & Smile, our caring and compassionate team is extremely dedicated to ensuring you get the care you want and need … and we understand that for many, dental anxiety or fear is not something you can “talk down.” That’s why sedation can be so successful for many people.
With sedation, we help you sit back, relax, and almost forget you’re at the dentist at all. Safe for children and adults, it’s an extremely effective way to dispel fear.
Here are sedation and anxiety-dispelling services that we’re pleased to provide you and your family:
Anxiety-releasing Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) – This colorless gas effectively reduces pain and anxiety, and sometimes, patients feel a euphoric effect. To administer laughing gas, we place a comfortable mask over your nose. You’ll feel the effect quickly and, once the mask is removed, its effects wear off quickly too! The best part? It’s safe for kids and adults alike.
24-hour emergency access & same-day appointments – Accidents happen. Restorations break. Because we never want you to suffer in pain or fear long-term damage, we have 24-hour emergency service for existing patients and same-day appointments for new patients. If you are experiencing pain, lose a tooth due to an accident, or if a filling falls out and leaves a sharp edge, we’re ready to provide gentle emergency care for you and your loved ones at our Yonge & Eglington dental office. Call us right away – we’ll fit you in.
