A good portion of the population describes dental appointments as an anxiety-producing experience, but your dentist in Arlington, VA has cracked the code to relieving dental phobia with sedation dentistry. Dr. Hazim Sadeddin understands the long-term mental and physical effects of ongoing dental fear. Instead of avoiding visiting Westover Dentistry until you are suffering from excruciating tooth pain, you can receive the preventive dental care that you need in a comfortable, relaxed state. We work with each patient to replace negative perceptions or experiences with positive ones.
We Understand Dental Phobia is Real
Anxiety is one of the most common problems that health professionals see, especially in the dental field. It’s not always a bad dental experience that evokes these fears either. Dental fear could be a snowball of fear of being trapped, getting an injection, or having your personal space invaded.
Understanding the root of a patient’s dental phobia is important to determining whether their fear of the dentist is minor or severe. By having an open conversation with your dentist about your dental fears, our office will be able to assist you with sedation dentistry that will relax you enough to receive the dental care your smile needs and deserves.
If you routinely put off or avoid dental appointments, you could be severely affecting your health. Westover Dentistry has a sedation dentist in Arlington, VA that is ready to help you overcome your dental fears. With our comprehensive sedation dentistry options, you can set aside anxious feelings to get the help you need.
This popular form of sedation is commonly known as “laughing gas.” That sounds much more comforting than a dental drill, right? Many patients that have mild dental anxiety turn to this form of sedation. Nitrous Oxide can be safely monitored by Dr. Sadeddin, effective, and affordable. Besides working quickly, it wears off quickly. The sedative is so light that you’re able to continue the rest of your day uninterrupted. Patients have driven home from their dental appointment after being cleared by one of our office team members.
Intravenous sedation is more commonly known as IV sedation. As the name suggests, the sedative is administered through an IV for patients with severe dental anxiety. We can perform multiple dental procedures in one visit while you drift off into a relaxed, deep sleep. Most patients tend to hardly have any memory of their dental appointment and can leave our office with a healthier smile, worry free.
