For individuals who suffer from dental anxiety, or those who are undergoing extensive treatments and feel nervous about long duration treatment, we offer sedation dentistry to make our patients more comfortable.
At Sterling Virginia Smiles we offer nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) as well as prescription medication to manage anxiety. The American Dental Association supports the use of sedation to ensure patients who require procedures like fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, extractions, cosmetic treatments, and periodontal procedures are comfortable.
Drs. Hubbard, Keynton Sill and Mitnick will discuss your options and what might be right for you before undergoing treatment.Please let our team know if you have any concerns regarding anxiety around dental treatment, as we pride ourselves on creating a safe and comfortable environment to care for even the most anxious of dental patients.
