We are Here to Help You Relax!

Sedation dentistry makes it easy for you to experience the most comfortable treatment possible here in our Alexandria office. At Vanguard Dental Solutions, you can rest assured that you are being treated by only certified sedation dentists, who are trained and licensed to administer safe, light conscious sedatives within our practice.

Comfortable Oral Option

Oral sedation utilizes prescription sedatives that are taken one hour before the scheduled treatment. The sedative then creates a relaxed, reduced anxiety state allowing the patient to remain comfortable during the procedure. It’s a perfect option for people who:

  • Feel nervous about going to the dentist
  • Have moderate to extensive dental needs
  • Require longer dental appointments
  • Want the most relaxing experience possible

Dr. Rahman and our team typically recommend sedation dentistry for procedures like dental implants, root canal therapy, crowns and bridges. However, we often have patients ask us to complete everything at once, including preventive cleanings and periodontal therapy during their sedation appointments!

Why Choose Sedation?

If you’ve put your dental care off longer than you should have, or you feel nervous about having a procedure completed – then oral sedation is right for you. The safe, effective treatment gives Drs. Rahman and Stasiewicz enough time to complete your treatment in one sitting, so that you can once again enjoy the level of health that you deserve.
