Many people feel a little nervous about visiting the dentist. But some folks experience dental anxiety that is serious enough that they avoid dental appointments.

At Lakeside Dentistry, we don’t want you to feel this way! If you skip visits to our Rochester, MN dentist office, you may end up with problems that require more involved procedures – which just causes more dental anxiety. Fortunately, our dentists Dr. Jim Gores, Dr. Lucy Gores, and Dr. Peggy Scott can ease your anxieties.

Let us help you beat this self-defeating cycle of dental anxiety! Call us at 507-316-6444.

Patience Is Key to Beating Dental Anxiety

Helping Patients with Dental Anxiety by Dr. Lucy Gores Read Transcript

When it comes to anxiety, there is nothing our veteran team hasn’t seen or heard before. After all, our three dentists have a combined 55-plus years of experience between them! And other members of our team have worked in dentistry for at least 20 years.

Thanks to this experience, we can calmly address any issues you may have that contribute to your anxiety. Let us know you’re nervous, and we’ll even schedule a longer appointment time for you.

Nitrous Oxide Is Nice

Nitrous oxide, sometimes known as laughing gas, can take the edge off during dental procedures. Here is why it’s our preferred method for relaxing you:

  • It’s safe. Dentists have used nitrous oxide for more than 100 years. So we know it’s safe. It can even be used on children.
  • It’s convenient. We administer it through a nasal hood, a small cup that fits over your nose. It takes effect quickly, so you won’t have to wait to feel relaxed.
  • It won’t leave you groggy. Most people feel like themselves while receiving nitrous oxide, and its effects wear off quickly. You won’t feel groggy after your procedure.
  • It’s easy to control. We can easily increase or decrease the amount of nitrous oxide as it’s administered so you get just the right amount to control your dental anxiety.

With our patient staff and nitrous oxide, there is no reason to feel dental anxiety! Call Lakeside Dentistry at 507-316-6444. Or use our online form for an appointment at our Rochester, MN dentist office.
