Anxious Dental Patient?

We all have that one thing that can make us nervous. If you are one who is anxious for your dental treatment, that is ok. For our patients who have high anxiety while in the dental chair, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and/or oral sedation to help calm your nerves.

This article touches on the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene, addressing gum disease early and speaks on the strong link between high blood pressure and periodontal disease.
