General Dental Anesthesia in Mt. Vernon

general anesthesia sedation Mt Vernon VAGeneral anesthesia creates a state of induced sleep to make dental treatments possible for anxious patients. For patients who cannot become relaxed with laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, or IV sedation, general anesthesia may be the perfect solution.

Have you been unable to receive the dentistry treatments you need because of a fear of pain or discomfort? Maybe an overactive gag reflex, sensitive teeth, or difficulty becoming numb is keeping you from enjoying your best smile.

We invite you to come speak with our sedation dentist about your dental anesthesia options. Our dental anesthesia options are safe and will ensure that you experience zero pain or anxiety during your procedure. Contact us at Mt. Vernon’s Center for Dentistry today!
