If you ever feel uneasy or uncomfortable in the dental chair, it’s best to tell our Dental Group of Tysons dental team as soon as possible. That way we can do all we can to make sure all your questions are addressed and all your worries are washed away. For your convenience, we happily provide nitrous oxide and oral sedation at our office to help you have a relaxed and comfortable dental experience.
Nitrous oxide is a light, flavored gas that is released from a mask that is placed over your nose. Once it is inhaled through the nostrils for a few minutes, you will feel a bit tingly and light headed. Most of all, you’ll feel relaxed and comfortable in the dental chair.
Oral sedation is a pill you will take about an hour before your treatment. As the sedation hits your system, you will feel a bit drowsy and maybe even groggy. Depending on the dose given, you might fall asleep in the dental chair. If this is the case, your dentist will gently wake you when your treatment is over.
As you can see, dental sedation can help you feel more comfortable and relaxed in the dental chair. If you’re interested in improving your dental experience with dental sedation in McLean, Virginia, please call our office at 703-448-3312 and tell our dental team. We will be happy to discuss your sedation options with you and decide which one is best. We look forward to helping you!
