Alexandria VA Sedation DentistDo you suffer from dental anxiety? Are you likely to postpone essential dental treatment because you feel the process is too long and uncomfortable? Sedation dentistry could be your key to experiencing worry-free dental work. You can have the peace of mind that you are getting the care you need minus the stress you don’t need. At our office, Dr. Farhan Qureshi will help your next session of dental care to be a relaxing one.

How Sedation Dentistry Works

Sedation is the process of relaxing your mind and body so that you are not bothered by the usual anxieties and discomforts. You are conscious for the procedure, but you will feel very sleepy during and afterwards. When the treatment is finished, you will feel as if only a few minutes have passed.
Sedation is achieved through the inhalation of nitrous oxide. Also known as “laughing gas,” this substance will make you feel light, happy, and relaxed.

Another method of sedation is the use of oral medication. Dr. Farhan Qureshi can provide a prescription strength sedative to help you relax for a few hours at a time.

How Sedation Dentistry Can Help You

You may suffer from memories of bad experiences in the past at dental offices. Perhaps this is your first time having dental treatment in a long while and you are anxious. You may have an extremely sensitive gag reflex or difficulty getting numb with local anesthetics. Or, you may even need to have an extensive amount of dental work done all at once.

Whatever your reason may be, schedule an appointment of sedation dentistry with Dr. Farhan Qureshi to turn your next dental experience into a positive and pleasant one.
