You may have heard that sedation dentistry can help ease anxiety and improve comfort during your dental visit. It can even be useful for people who struggle with issues such as an overactive gag reflex and difficulties responding to numbing agents. But is sedation dentistry safe? Yes it is.

Fairfax sedation dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban offers conscious oral sedation for patients who need help relaxing or increasing comfort prior to a visit. Certified by the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, Dr. Marzban has undergone extensive training to ensure patients undergoing this treatment remain safe during and after their procedure. Of course, even this safe form of sedation is not right for everyone. The best way to learn if it is right for you is through a one-on-one consultation with our experienced sedation dentist.

IV sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, poses a number of health risks and should only be done when absolutely necessary. Dr. Marzban does not perform IV sedation, but may recommend nitrous oxide under certain circumstances. This decision will be based on your medical history and individual needs.

To learn if conscious sedation is right for you, please contact Pamela Marzban, DDS today. Our sedation dentist serves Fairfax and surrounding communities from our comfortable Buke office.
