Dr. Riaz Rayek helps people in Fairfax, VA have better dental appointments with safe, effective sedation.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry refers to the use of medication to place the patient in a very relaxed state before and during a procedure. With sedation dentistry, the patient is not put completely to sleep. He or she is awake and able to communicate, yet very relaxed. Many patients report that they do not even remember their procedures afterward.
Is Sedation Safe?
If the proper steps are taken, and if the dentist has undergone the proper training and education, sedation is very safe for adults and children alike. The key is to find a dentist who fits this description. Dr. Rayek has undergone advanced training in sedation and has devoted time to learning how to properly administer sedation to adults and children.
If you or a loved one needs to undergo a dental procedure and struggles with a fear of going to the dentist, sedation can help make the appointment go much more smoothly. Visit Smiles at Fairfax Corner for a better, more relaxed dental appointment.
