Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry in Fairfax

Afraid to go to the dentist? Relax! At Fairfax Advanced Dentistry in Fairfax, Virginia, we utilize sedation dentistry to put patients into a relaxed state. Pain-free sedation dentistry is often used during procedures that require extensive amount of time in the treatment chair such as dental implants. It is also ideal for patients who suffer from dental phobia or have difficulty controlling their movements.

With sedation and cosmetic dentistry, you can have the beautiful smile and good dental health you have always wanted. Imagine being able to smile with confidence and chew without pain. Sedation dentistry alleviates anxiety and puts patients in a sleep-like state, so little is felt or remembered after treatment. Whether you want your teeth discreetly straightened using the revolutionary Invisalign® technique, or you crave a whiter, brighter smile using a combination of porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, Fairfax Advanced Dentistry doctors can restore your smile’s radiance. To learn more about pain-free sedation dentistry, contact our Fairfax cosmetic dentistry office and schedule a free consultation and smile evaluation.

Dental Anxiety

Are you a person who avoids having dental work done because you have a strong aversion to dental treatment? You’re not alone. The most prevalent reason people put off visiting the dentist is dental anxiety. While these feelings are understandable, procrastination may allow relatively minor dental problems, such as gum disease, to become major dental issues that require extensive intervention. If you have a fear of dentists, sedation dentistry can help. For a consultation at our Fairfax pain-free sedation dentistry office, in Fairfax County, Virginia, contact Fairfax Advanced Dentistry.

Candidates for Sedation Dentistry

With pain-free sedation dentistry, you can overcome your anxieties and get the treatment you need. Even procedures such as root canals can be non-traumatic. As an added benefit, sedation dentistry allows patients to combine multiple procedures into one or two visits, saving time and limiting inconvenience.

Sedation dentistry may be right for you if you exhibit any of the following:

  • Dental anxiety / dental phobia
  • Sensitive teeth or difficulty getting numb
  • Complex dental issues
  • Limited time to complete dental work
  • Traumatic dental experiences
  • Difficulty controlling movement

Note: Patients who have a medical condition should notify their dentist about the condition prior to any sedation dentistry procedure. Please report any known allergies. Patients should also notify their dentist about any medications they are currently taking. Generally, sedation dentistry is reserved for patients who are 18 years old and older.
