If you have claustrophobia, you avoid enclosed spaces. If you have arachnophobia, you stay away from spiders. Fair enough! But if you fear the dentist you may be inclined to avoid checkups. At The Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria, we know this is a bad idea.
The connection between your dental health and overall health is by now well-established. Skipping regular checkups due to fear, or any other reason, puts your general health at risk, too.
Help Is Here
A solution that works is sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is using one of several sedation options to relax you during your dental procedure. You can expect to be only minimally aware of your surroundings: the sights, sounds, and smells of the office. Most importantly, you won’t be aware of any pain.
It’s important to know that it takes a while for the effects to wear off. You will need to have someone escort you to and from our office.
