Keeping Patients Calm

sleep dentistry Alexandria

Are you or a family member apprehensive about going to the dentist? Have you neglected going to the dentist because of this, and fear the amount of work that might need to be carried out? Sedation dentistry from the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria might be just what you need.

If your past or current situation is causing a lot of nervousness, there are options available to calm your fear and reduce (or completely eliminate) your pain with the required services. Sedation dentistry (sometimes called sleep dentistry) has helped countless people calmly undergo dental treatment. It is not an experimental procedure but has been used safely in various forms since the 1800s.

There is a big difference between topical analgesics and sedation. Analgesics help numb the gums and nerves connected with your teeth so you don’t feel the pain. Sedation dentistry impacts the nervous system to induce a feeling of peace and relaxation.

Our practice offers several sedation options. You may choose to be minimally sedated, where you are reserved but still awake, or select general anesthesia, which renders you completely unconscious. Together, these two solutions dramatically improve the treatment experience for patients suffering from dental anxiety, a very common condition.

Regardless of the type and level of sedation you decide to use, we proceed with patience and understanding. Sedation assists in making your dental visit peaceful so you can treat all of your dental troubles and restore your health.

Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria is committed to sedation dentistry and oral health. Our services also include family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
