For patients with mild dental anxiety, nitrous oxide may be the best option. Also known as “laughing gas,” we administer it through a nasal mask, and within minutes, patients begin to feel more relaxed. We can adjust the amount of gas depending on your needs, and once we’re finished with treatment, the effects wear off incredibly fast, allowing patients to get back to their lives right away.
The Wand Local anesthesia is often required during dental care because it helps significantly reduce the amount of discomfort patients experience. However, many children and adults suffer from a fear of syringes. Here in Lansdowne, patients from the nearby Leesburg and Ashburn and beyond experience advanced pain relief with The Wand. Unlike traditional methods, The Wand is controlled by a computer, and provides precise treatment without unintentionally rendering other areas numb. Better yet, the injection is more comfortable, and doesn’t look like a needle, which helps patients feel much more at ease.
