At the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria, we pride ourselves in giving patients the information and services they need, which sometimes includes sedation dentistry.
When patients are in need of a filling or a crown, we take the time to explain the treatment and why it needs to be done. We also explain how to care for your teeth post-procedure.
We’re sensitive to the fact that as many as twenty percent of Americans have dental anxiety. Some may worry about injections or pain, other about the side effects of anesthesia, or a sense of helplessness and loss of control.
If any of those issues trouble you, and you’ve put off seeing the dentist, please understand that we are here to help. Your dental health is vital to your overall health. If you suffer from dental anxiety, consider the sedation options offered by the Center for Dental Anesthesia.
The truth is that for some patients, a numbing agent like novocaine isn’t enough. We offer several options. IV Sedation, sometimes referred to as conscious sedation, does not put you completely under. But it makes you less aware of what’s going on during your procedure. As its name suggests, IV sedation is given intravenously by a qualified professional.
We also offer general anesthesia. This is administered with prescription medications, and will put you completely out. You will feel no pain or anxiety at all. We never want any of our patients to experience that.
