For those who would rather suffer the pain of a toothache than visit a dental office, or for people who have serious anxiety about visiting a dentist, our Carleton Place dental clinic offers sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry uses nitrous sedation to help patients feel more relaxed during more intensive procedures.

If you think sedation dentistry would help you on your visit, call our offices or fill out our online form to inquire about this service.

Yes! Our Carleton Place dental clinic is family-friendly. If you are coming in with your children for a teeth cleaning, we offer snacks to young ones while they wait. We are also experienced at providing quality dental services and easing the anxiety of even our youngest patients.
We recommend that, as soon as you see teeth, you bring your child in for a cleaning and to make sure their teeth are strong and healthy. That means that your child should have visited the dentist at least once by their first birthday!
Our Carleton Place dental clinic offers same-day appointments for Ontario residents. Whether you’re experiencing serious tooth pain, or you’ve chipped or broken a tooth, it’s important you get in touch with us as soon as you realize you need to make an emergency visit to the dentist. Visit our Emergency Dentistry page to learn more.

We recommend a standard cleaning service and checkup every six months. If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or bleeding in your mouth, it may be necessary to schedule an emergency dentist appointment.

You don’t have to go anywhere! At Costello Family Dentistry, we offer all kinds of tooth extractions including wisdom teeth removal. Inquire about booking a consultation with one of our wisdom teeth removal specialists when you contact us.
Yes! A topical fluoride treatment helps prevent cavities and strengthen tooth enamel while reducing tooth sensitivity, something that is especially important for adults with gum recession and a potential risk for tooth decay. It may not be necessary if your mouth is in good shape, but it provides many preventative benefits for the majority of adult mouths.
