    Did you know that some of Dr. Martino's patients previously used to never complete treatments without sedation, and are now comfortable falling asleep on their own in her care?

    If you suffer from dental anxiety, our Richmond Hill dental office has got you covered! Dr. Martino takes a preventive and minimally invasive approach to dentistry, which means that she will only suggest procedures that are absolutely required for your oral health.

    Our dental team takes pride in treating patients with love and care, which allows nervous and anxious patients to become comfortable with dental treatments. We understand and empathize with our patients' nervousness and anxiety surrounding dental visits. For your convenience, we also offer sedation in the form of nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

    Nitrous Oxide Sedation

    Nitrous oxide, also called "laughing gas" is a colourless and odourless gas that slows down the body's reaction time. While patients do not fall asleep, they are much more relaxed and suffer much less anxiety during dental treatments. Nitrous oxide is also the only sedation option that allows patients to drive safely after a procedure!

    Nitrous oxide is popular among patients who suffer from dental anxiety, have sensitive teeth, and/or are afraid of needles, drills and loud noises. Combined with Dr. Martino's gentleness and people-first approach, your treatment will be a breeze!

    Here are a few other tips to remain calm during or in preparation for your appointment:

    • Talk to our Richmond Hill dentist and team: let us know what makes you nervous and we will do everything we can to make your appointment easygoing.
    • Listen to music during the appointment: calm music can help reduce stress and anxiety!
    • Breathe slowly and deeply: deep breathing has also been shown to reduce stress.

    If you have any questions regarding sedation or dental anxiety, feel free to contact us!
