At Eagle Family Dentistry, we believe that providing adequate anxiety control is an integral part of delivering quality and comfortable dentistry. We believe that all patients deserve appropriate anxiety control for any dental procedure we offer. A ‘one size fits all’ sedation dentistry approach is also inappropriate to treat various levels of dental fear and anxiety.
Mild anxiety and fear are normal reactions to situations that a person finds threatening, while phobias are irrational. Anxiety and fear experienced by dental patients range from mild anxiety to phobic fear, and represent a barrier to care. The main factors related to fear or anxiety about dental treatment are fear of pain, needles, and/or the noise and sensation induced by the use of hand pieces. Newmarket dentist, Dr. Saeed Meshksar offers Laughing Gas, to make dentistry possible for patients that suffer from dental anxiety.
Laughing Gas Sedation
The use of conscious sedation in dentistry in office-based settings continues to increase. Laughing Gas is the most commonly used inhalation sedative used in dentistry, and has withstood the test of time with an excellent safety record in adults and children. It reduces anxiety, pain, and memory of the treatment experienced, and best of all has no side effects.
Dr. Saeed Meshksar uses laughing gas/oxygen conscious sedation in oral surgery, particularly in the extraction of third molars, periodontal surgery, and in patients with behavioral or developmental issues.
Who Is A Candidate For Laughing Gas Sedation?
Are you someone who’s a little intimidated by the dentist? It could stem from one negative experience, or even a general fear of needles and noises.

You may even be someone who needs an extensive amount of dental work and have a busy schedule and need it done all at once. If you can relate to any of these reasons , you’re a good candidate for Laughing Gas Sedation Dentistry at Eagle Family Dentistry in Newmarket.
