Sedation

Offered at our convenient location in Alexandria, VA

sedation-dentistry-alexandriaSedation Dentistry has helped so many of our patients receive their desired dental treatment under anxiety free conditions.

It enables individuals too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia.

Some patients need to be calmed before they get to the office, so we can prescribe an oral medication to be taken prior to their appointment to help them relax.

For those patients who prefer to be sedated during their dental procedures, Nitrous Oxide gas (laughing gas) is the most commonly used sedation technique. It helps relax patients by inhaling a gas administered through the nose. Patients report that it helps make them feel both comfortable and less nervous.
