Sedation Dentistry

nucalm-system-2We realize many patients have dental fear or anxieties that may prevent them from wanting to make an appointment or come into the dental office.  At Aesthetic Dentistry of Fairfax, we understand your worries and want to eliminate and help ease your anxieties.  Our team wants to provide you with a healthy mouth and smile that you deserve; that’s why we offer several options for sedation dentistry and total mind and body relaxation.

Nu Calm is our newest addition to calm and soothe our patients, its simple easy to use and requires no medications. While using new calm you may enter a deep state of comfort and experience an almost twilight sleep or amnesic effect.  Dr. Mostafa Aboulkhair and his team are proud to offer this service to our patients and welcome you to come into our office and say goodbye to dental anxiety.

For patients that need something a little stronger or more sedate, we also offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.  Nitrous Oxide also is known as “laughing gas”. This is nonodorous and administered to you through a nasal mask, you will feel instantly euphoric and more relaxed allowing you to sit through your appointment with more ease.  Nitrous oxide is safe and wears off quickly. once it is turned off you are able to leave the office and return to your daily routine without any effects from the medication.

Oral conscious sedation is slightly more involved and will require some work on the patient’s end but also highly effective. Dr.Mostafa Aboulkhair will provide his patients with a prescription for a sedative, the patient will take the medication 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to the appointment and have a family member or close friend accompany them to and from their dental appointment.  The sedative medication will allow you to be calm and relaxed while your dental procedure is performed and generally stays in your system longer requiring you to have a guest accompany looking after you for a few hours following your dental visit.

We are here to help you, if you are avoiding the dentist out of fear, you do not have too. We are here and we care!  Call our office today at 703-218-8142 and schedule your next dental appointment with Dr. Mostafa Aboulkhair and his team at Aesthetic Dentistry of Fairfax.
