What is General Anesthesia?

Advanced Anesthesia Options for Northern Virginia

sedation dentist and dental anesthesia services in Alexandria and Northern VirginiaGeneral anesthesia is a state of sleep induced by prescription medications. We meet patients who have tried laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation without success. General anesthesia has been the perfect solution for countless patients who have been unable to receive important dental care in the past.

Dental anesthesia will ensure that you experience zero pain or anxiety during your procedure. Proper dental care is essential, but the Center for Dental Anesthesia understands that dental anxiety, disability, or other reasons make dental procedures difficult.

A qualified sedation dentist, like Dr. Mady and Dr. Geren, can make your general, restorative, or cosmetic procedure possible with general anesthesia.

When and Why is General Anesthesia Used?

Here at the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria, our sedation dentist, Dr. Mady and Dr. Geren, provides general anesthesia for patients who need to sleep through their dental procedures. Most commonly, we provide dental anesthesia for patients who:

  • Are very young and are unable to cooperate during a procedure.
  • Have special needs that prevent them from sitting through a standard dental visit.
  • Have severe dental anxiety or dental phobia.
  • Must undergo a long or uncomfortable dental procedure.

We do not want any of our patients to feel pain, discomfort, or stress. Dr. Mady and Dr. Geren are highly trained in sedation dentistry, and we create a safe, comfortable environment for our patients to enjoy quality dental care.

Who Can Provide General Anesthesia?

Only dentists with additional training can provide general anesthesia to their patients. Our sedation dentist, Dr. Mady, and Dr. Geren, and all of our team members have undergone rigorous training to learn about the administration of dental anesthesia. Our team has the ability and knowledge to provide safe and effective general sedation for you and your family in the Northern Virginia area.
