Sedation Dentistry

Dr. Kelliher understands that some patients are anxious during their dental treatments and can benefit from sedation dentistry which can help them to relax throughout their appointment. Our sedation dentistry techniques offer relief to these patients so they can receive the comprehensive dental care they need for optimal oral health.

In addition to being used to calm the fears of anxious patients, sedation dentistry can also be used on patients who have sensitive teeth, poor gag reflexes or a low pain threshold. It may also be appropriate for patients who have trouble sitting still in the dentist's chair or require a large amount of dental work.

Whether sedation dentistry is appropriate for you will be determined in a consultation with our sedation dentist, Dr. Kelliher, but in many cases it can be a benefit for people with:

  • A severe gag reflex
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • High dental anxiety and fear
  • Time constraints-those who need to get more dentistry done in fewer visits
  • Physical limitations such as back and neck problems
  • Extensive treatment needs
  • A desire to have dentistry done comfortably while they are fully relaxed

Sedation Dentistry can help our patients, and provides an option to help ensure patients have a safe and comfortable experience with the Metropolitan Dental Centre.

For any questions on sedation dentistry or to schedule an appointment, please call us at 703.503.5031 or email us, and our staff will happy to assist you.
