Ending Dental Anxiety
Dentist in Manassas, VA area offers oral sedation dentistry
It is not unusual for the dentists of Taheri Dental Group to work with patients who are fearful of the dental chair. Dental anxiety is a common issue that both children and adults may deal with. It may be embarrassing for patients to admit that they have fears regarding the dental chair and the work they need done to bring their smile back to health. We understand, and we offer a solution: oral sedation dentistry. Visiting a dentist in the Manassas, VA area who offers oral conscious sedation is a great way to have a positive experience at every visit. Oral conscious sedation is a special type of sedation that is administered before patients even arrive at the dental office.
Patients are advised to procure transportation to and from the dental office for their appointment. They are prescribed a medication that is taken approximately one hour prior to arriving, during which they will be calm and relaxed. Patients are completely conscious with this medication and can follow instructions and answer questions. However, their fears are often eliminated, making it easy for both patient and dentist to complete a procedure. Oral conscious sedation can be used for patients who have all levels of anxiety and for all types of procedures—even cleanings and examinations! We want our patients to trust us and know that we can treat them even with severe anxieties. We do not judge—instead, we focus on making it a positive experience for the patient so they continue to have their dental work completed as needed.
