Among the most common phobias, visiting the dentist causes many people severe anxiety and stress. Often, fearful patients forgo necessary dental care to avoid a visit to their dentist. If you find yourself feeling panicky at the thought of having your teeth worked on, you should know that a safe, comfortable dental relaxation method exists. Sedation dentistry is used at our Reston dental facility to alleviate dental anxiety, so you can face dental appointments with confidence and no apprehension. We also use sedation for some of our other general dental treatments.
