Afraid Of The Dentist? Sedation Dentistry Can Help

If you live near Reston and experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, oral sedation is for you.

Our practice, Expressions Dental Care, offers conscious sedation dentistry Also known as relaxation dentistry, oral conscious sedation, sleep dentistry, or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and very popular for nervous dental patients.

Though it may sound impossible, with oral conscious sedation, you can actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

Sedation dentistry is great for alleviating anxiety and oral conscious sedation can be effective for treating or working with the following:

  • Teeth sensitivity;

  • Fear of needles;

  • A powerful gag reflex;

  • Difficulty controlling body movement;

  • Lengthy multi-procedure visits;

  • Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections.

If you need dental work more extensive than a filling – such as a root canal, tooth implant, crown replacement or wisdom tooth extraction –  call Expressions Dental Care at 703-757-6453 for information about sedation dentistry.
