Arlington, VA Sedation Dentist Provides Comfortable Treatment
Do you routinely put off or avoid important dental care because of anxiety? Our Arlington, VA dental practice has a great solution—three solutions, actually—for helping patients just like you overcome that anxiety. With our comprehensive sedation dentistry options, you can set aside anxious feelings to get the help you need.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Better known as "laughing gas," nitrous oxide is a gas that creates feelings of relaxation within minutes of being breathed in. This makes it a great solution for anyone with mild to moderate anxiety. Besides going to work quickly, it also wears off quickly, so you can return to your normal activities immediately following treatment.
As the name suggests, intravenous sedation is delivered through an IV. Because of the precise control that’s possible with it, IV sedation is a great option for patients with mild, moderate, or severe anxiety. The effects of IV sedation take time to wear off. If you are undergoing a procedure with this option, you’ll need to have a friend or family member with you until the effects have worn off. You’ll be free to return to your normal activities by the next day.
