Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Studies show that nitrous oxide sedation can reduce your dental visits to half or less.

Dental Anxiety

Let’s be honest … going to the dentist may not ever be “fun,” but it doesn’t have to be unpleasant. That’s why at Flourish Dental, we have one priority: your comfort.

From routine cleanings to advanced cosmetic enhancements, we take a warm, calming, and personalized approach designed to make going to the dentist a little easier. This is a place where laughter is heard ringing in the hallways. We strive to make your visit as comfortable as possible. We have staff that will cater to all your needs.

Dental anxiety can stem from a lot of things, but if you have ever felt like you haven’t been heard in a dental office, we will listen! We really want you to feel comfortable in every aspect of your care. Even if you haven’t had a negative experience in the past, a fear of needles or nervousness triggered by the smells in a doctor’s office can all trigger fear, but we are here to talk you through any issues you may have.

Fear related to not being frozen? Have you tried to explain you aren’t frozen only to hear “we’re almost done!” We have a new way to freeze you that works, especially if you have had trouble getting frozen in the past. We will not work on you without making sure you are completely comfortable.

Nitrous Oxide

At Flourish Dental, we use nitrous oxide, also known as “Laughing Gas”, as a conscious sedative during a dental visit. The gas is administered with a mixture of oxygen and has a calming effect that helps phobic or anxious patients relax during their dental treatment.

Because it is a mild sedative, patients are still conscious and can talk to their dentist during the visit. After treatment, the nitrous oxide is turned off and the effects wear off almost immediately. It is also safe and effective for use on children.

Covid-19 Consent

We are taking all necessary COVID-19 safety precautions as advised by the Alberta Dental Association & College. 

Please notify our staff before your appointment if you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled outside of Canada or if you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or who was quarantined as a precaution.

If you have an illness or are exhibiting symptoms, we recommend you cancel and reschedule your dental appointment. Some illness and symptoms include:

• Flu-like symptoms • Fever or Nausea
• Cough • Sore Throat • Shortness of Breath
• Difficulty Breathing or Chest Pain •Runny Nose
