At Softouch Dental Care, we believe passionately in the importance of high-quality dentistry. We know our dental services can do wonders for our Northern Virginia patients. But we also understand that for many of these patients, the prospect of visiting the dentist is worrisome, even frightening. The good news is that if you suffer from severe dental anxiety, there is a solution: sedation dentistry.
Millions of Americans suffer from dental anxiety. This isn't just a mild, generalized nervousness. Instead, it is a severe, debilitating feeling of anxiety, one that's so bad it prevents those suffering from it from undergoing needed dental care.
Sedation dentistry eliminates this as a problem. By administering an oral sedative or nitrous oxide, we can place you in a pleasant, relaxed, dream-like state. You won't be unconscious, and you'll be able to respond to the dentist's instructions. But you won't be worrying about the sights, smells or sounds of the dental office.
We have seen many times that anxious patients who are in good overall health and have no allergies to common sedatives are usually great candidates for sedation dentistry. We'll talk to you about your concerns, answer your questions and help you determine if sedation dentistry is right for you.
If you live anywhere in northern Virginia and you suffer from severe dental anxiety, sedation dentistry is a great option. Please call Softouch Dental Care today at 703-319-6990 to arrange a consultation.
