Anxious or Nervous Patients
At Blunston Dental Group in Airdrie, Alberta we offer options for anxious or nervous dental patients.
We understand that some people may have a fear of the dentist. We strive to help our patients relax before and during their dental procedures so they will feel more at ease with their in-office oral care.

Here's our take on numbing injections:
Before we perform the numbing injection, we use a topical numbing gel to minimize the feeling in your gums. With this approach, you may not feel the injection at all.
For patients with a fear of needles, we use a tool for the injection that looks more like a wand than a needle. Our goal is to keep you as comfortable as possible.
