Pain Control

If you thought discomfort and dentistry went hand in hand, we would like to change that for you. We’ve designed our practice specifically to give us every advantage in providing excellent patient care. We think you’ll find our hi-tech office to be warm and inviting. Everything has been purposely designed to make you comfortable. Plus, you’ll notice right away that we don’t just sit you down in the chair and start working on your teeth – we take all the time required to assess your oral health status, listen to your concerns, and help you think through your objectives. So whether you’re considering a cosmetic treatment, or you are in to discuss general oral health, we will take the time to listen and offer you the best treatment in a relaxed environment.Pain free middle age couple smiling.

If our office and outstanding team isn’t enough, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to put you at ease. It provides a safe, effective way to alleviate dental anxiety.

In some cases our young patients who require extensive work, or our very nervous adult patients, need something more than freezing and nitrous gas. In these situations, we can discuss options for general anaesthetic provided through our partners at the Ottawa Surgi Centre. We also find that our dental laser treatment can be quite effective on some procedures, as we are often able to do treatment without the need for freezing.

So, rest assured we know that not everyone enjoys their trip to the dental office, so we’ll do all we can to make you comfortable!
