Advantages of Sedation Dentistry

Serving Northern Virginia including Oakton

When you come to Softouch Dental Care for dental treatment, we want to make you feel like a guest in our office with access to all the modern amenities. Oakton sedation dentistry plays an integral part in improving your experience by providing a more comfortable environment.  There are many advantages of sedation dentistry which you will see in our Fairfax dentistry practice.

Sedation Dentistry for a Variety of Needs and Treatments

Sedation is of great benefit if you suffer from a dental phobia by providing you with the ability to relax. Small amounts of tension are common in most dental visits, but sedation limits this. You will experience a deep relaxation with little memory of the treatment once completed. It is often referred to as sleep dentistry for this reason.

You may be a sedation dentistry candidate if you are undergoing more complex procedures such as an Oakton full mouth rejuvenation. Sedation will help you feel more comfortable during the extensive work required by this kind of Fairfax cosmetic dentistry procedure. Some of our patients may request sedation dentistry for treatments, such as:

  • Porcelain crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Fillings for cavities

Sedation techniques work in different ways but achieve similar results. We know you will feel deeply relaxed during a procedure with sedation, but we have gone the extra mile in comfort amenities. Your treatment is enhanced by our investment in extra padding for dental chairs, neck support pillows and more.

Care for Individual Needs

We pride ourselves on offering the very best dental technology available to us, and this includes sedation dentistry. Arlington sedation dentist Dr. Chung is trained in treating patients with oral sedation and nitrous oxide. Both techniques are safe and effective for you if you have dental phobia, need extensive dental work all at once, or a medical condition that makes it difficult for you to stay in a dental chair.

When you speak with our team about your medical history, we will evaluate which method will work best in your case. We carefully evaluate any prescription medication or medical needs that may hinder the effectiveness of sedation. Your safety is always the first concern of Northern Virginia dentist Dr. Chung.
