Dental-related anxiety is a common problem among patients of all ages, and it can happen for a number of reasons. Maybe you had a bad experience years ago that you still think about, or perhaps you simply can’t stand the sights and sounds of dental work. Whatever the reason, Dr. Malcolm Murray and the rest of our Fairfax team will work hard to ensure that you still have a great experience with us. Sedation dentistry in Fairfax, VA is available for those who need a little extra help feeling genuinely relaxed and at ease during their appointments.
Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a great sedation option for patients who struggle with mild to moderate feelings of dental anxiety and/or fear. The gas is administered through a nasal mask, and within minutes, patients should start to feel more content and relaxed. The biggest advantage of this method is that these effects wear off just as quickly once the mask is removed. This means patients can return to their daily routine following treatment with virtually no downtime required.
