Candidates for Sedation (Sleep) Dentistry

"I greatly dislike going to ANY dentist for any reason, including just having my teeth cleaned. This is the first dental office that I have returned to on a regular basis to maintain the health of my teeth and gums. It only took be 60+ years to find such a place."


Most people with dental anxiety or a fear of undergoing dental care are good candidates for sedation (sleep) dentistry. It can be most beneficial for patients who:

  • Have extreme dental anxiety and fear

  • Hate needles and shots

  • Have had traumatic dental experiences in the past

  • Hate the smells, noises, and tastes associated with dental care

  • Have very sensitive teeth or difficulty getting numb

  • Have a sensitive gag reflex

  • Have complex dental problems that require extensive care, such as a full mouth reconstruction

  • Simply want a comfortable and relaxing dental experience

Patients from Northern Virginia, including Vienna and the Great Falls / Washington, D.C. region, can discover the benefits of sedation (sleep) dentistry by contacting Rye Smiles for Life. Schedule an appointment today.
