Do you feel anxious or nervous when considering visiting the dentist?
If you have dental anxiety you may want to consider sedation dentistry options. If you avoid visiting the dentist sedation dentistry can help you relax and remain calm while you receive the dental care you need or want.
Our Centreville, VA area dentist office provides patients with sedation options. Dr. Hassan will take a medical history and discuss your concerns and goals with you prior to making a recommendation for sedation. Your safety is our top priority and all patients who choose sedation dentistry are closely monitored.
Avoiding the dentist can lead to more complex dental health issues such as painful tooth infections that will require a root canal. Routine dental exams and teeth cleanings help you maintain your stable, healthy smile. Without routine dentistry, patients are more prone to experience tooth loss, gum disease, and overall deterioration of your oral health. If you have dental anxiety, sedation dentistry can help you maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
Patient education can go a long way in helping patients take control of their dental anxiety. Dr. Hassan promotes open communication and always takes the time to answer your questions and explain procedures. Patients often find a sense of relief knowing that our dental care team takes the time to build positive relationships, and empowers their patients through patient education.
