Pain Free Dentistry with Sedation in Mt Vernon
Sedation dentistry allows our Mt. Vernon dentists to provide a variety of dental treatments in a way that keeps anxious dental patients 100% comfortable.
Sedation dentistry is pain-free dentistry because it can eliminate sensitivity on its own or when used in conjunction with local anesthesia. Sedation dentistry is also worry-free dentistry because it keeps patients calm and safe through any procedure.
Our qualified sedation dentist can help YOU receive the dental work you want or need with absolutely no stress on your part. Come enjoy pain-free dentistry at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, and get the dazzling smile you deserve if you are in the Alexandria area.

If any of the following situations describe you, schedule a consultation with our sedation dentist.

What is Sleep Dentistry?
The term “sleep dentistry” is sometimes used to describe sedation dentistry, but it is not entirely accurate. Sleep dentistry does not actually mean you fall asleep when you choose sedation dentistry. While some options may induce sleep, most sedation dentistry will only make you feel as if you have been asleep because you feel so safe, relaxed, and comfortable.
What Should I Expect from my Sedation Dentistry Procedure?
You can expect pain-free dentistry from any sedated dental procedure. Our sedation dentist will give you the prescription or information necessary before your procedure so you will know what to expect. You may need to take a pill before your sedation dentistry procedure, or you can simply enter our office and be made comfortable by our caring staff.
In some cases, you may need to bring someone to drive you to and from your sedation dentistry procedure. Your sedation dentistry experience will vary based upon which type of sedation you and your sedation dentist decide is right for you!
