Are you one of many Americans who avoids the dentist due to dental anxiety? Fear of the dentist can prevent many people from getting the oral health care they need and deserve. Your mouth is the gateway to your well-being, and it needs to be taken well care of. Dr. Datta and the team at Ridgetop Dental not only provide dental sedation options at our Reston and Sterling dentist office but they work tirelessly to make you feel as comfortable as possible at every visit.
Conquering Your Fear of the Dentist
Avoiding the dentist could mean you are allowing complex dental concerns to develop. Remember, preventive dental care is the best way to avoid the need for advance dental restoration like root canals and dental implants. If it has been awhile since you have visited a dentist, contact our Reston or Sterling dentist offices. Our staff is compassionate, understanding, and welcoming. We will always make you feel welcome and help you through each step of your dental exam. We will take the time to discuss your sedation options so that you will feel your most at ease.
Sedation dentistry takes the fear out of the dentist, allowing many more patients to comfortably receive the care they need. Dr. Datta provides two different sedation option:
- Nitrous oxide: also known as “laughing gas”, nitrous is an odorless gas inhaled through the nose. One of the key benefits is that it takes effect immediately and wears off just as quickly.
- IV sedation: Ridgetop Dental is one of few Northern VA dentist offices providing the option of IV sedation. Your sedation will be administered by a board certified anesthesiologist in the comfort of our modern dentist office. IV sedation allows your Ridgetop Dental dentist to perform multiple procedures at once eliminating unnecessary visits to the dentist. You will need a ride home after treatment as IV sedation can take a few hours to fully wear off.
Taking care of your teeth and gums can help improve your quality of life and keep you healthy and happy for years to come. Every patient is treated as an individual and will receive personalized and compassionate dental care. Sedation dentistry can help you improve your life. Contact our Reston or Sterling, VA dentist office to find out how sedation dentistry can help you get the dental care you deserve.
