At Advanced Family Dentistry, we want you to be comfortable during your dental treatment, and offer sedation for patients with sensitive gag reflexes or overall anxiety. While most dental procedures do not require the patient to be under the influence of sedatives, some dental procedures or patients may require it.
Sedation can be administered in several ways including oral, IV and by use of nitrous oxide. We will take every care, with gentle treatment, to make sure you are relaxed and in control at all times.
All sedated patients are required to be accompanied, as the effect of sedatives may last for up to six hours or more. During this entire period, the patient should be under the watchful eye of their family member, friend or companion.
Sedation dentistry is performed by our oral surgeon at our dental office. If you have questions about sedation or would like to schedule an appointment, call us today at 703-390-9191.
