Visting the dentist regularly for preventive care visits helps ensure your smile is healthy and free of complex dental problems. The longer you wait to visit the dentist, the more likely the chance that you will develop a complex dental problem that may lead to uncomfortable and sometimes painful symptoms. Practicing preventive dental care minimizes your chance of developing complex dental issues. Even if you have a fear of the dentist, our dental care team can work with you to help your experience at our Northern, VA dental office more comfortable and relaxing.
Sedation Options At Ridgetop Dental In Northern, VA
- Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous Oxide is popularly known as “laughing gas.” Nitrous is an odorless gas that is released through a mask and inhaled through the nose. Patients can still interact with their dentist during treatment if needed. Once the mask is removed, the effects of Nitrous Oxide diminish.
- IV Sedation: Your sedation will be administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist in the comfort of our Northern, VA dental office. IV sedation helps patients feel relaxed during their dental treatment. If need, your dentist can perform multiple procedures during your visit. With IV sedation, patients often have little to no memory of their dental procedure. IV sedation can be a great option for patients who need multiple treatment or patients who have had a traumatic experience at the dentist. Our team of dentist work with you to provide a safe, comfortable environment for your treatment. It is important that patients coordinate a ride after their treatment.
- General Anesthesia: General anesthesia outs patients in a sleep-like state. Your sedation will be administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist to ensure patients are safe and comfortable during treatment.
