Cascades Center for Dental Health offers sedation dentistry to its patients in the Reston VA area. Sedation dentistry is the perfect answer to those who avoid the dentist due to any number of issues. We help hundreds of patients each year who have gotten behind on their dental care because they are uncomfortable or nervous about dental visits.
At Cascades Dental, we also use sedation dentistry for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have quite a bit of dental work to get done but do not have the time to spend at the dentist’s office over multiple visits. Dr. Ruparelia’s reputation as an expert in sedation dentistry has resulted in his nickname as the “sleep dentist.”
Sedation Dentistry Benefits
Not all of our patients at Cascades Dental require or prefer sedation, but it is available to everyone. Patients who merely prefer the comfort and convenience of sedation are gladly accommodated just as much as those who have legitimate dental anxiety.
Dr. Ruparelia often recommends that patients requiring extensive dental treatment consider sedation dentistry. The sedation allows the patient not only comfort during the treatment, but convenience by lessening the number of visits needed to complete their treatment. Thousands of patients have benefitted from Cascade Dental’s sedation dentistry treatments over the years, and so should you. All of that experience means you will be in good hands with Dr. Ruparelia and his staff.
Dental treatment that is performed while a patient is sedated with medication is sedation dentistry. The purpose of the sedation is to make the patient as comfortable as possible during the appointment. The level of sedation given a patient varies depending upon need.
After a sedation dentistry appointment at Cascade Dental, no matter how light the sedation may have been, most patients feel as if they slept through the procedure. If the sedation level is light enough, however, that patient may never have been truly asleep. Patients often comment that their experience in the office on the day of sedation feels as if it were only a dream.
It is not common to find a dental office that office that offers sleep dentistry, which is one of the reasons Cascades Dental your best choice in the Reston VA area. Dr. Ruparelia’s specialized training, and Cascades Dental’s advanced facility make sleep dentistry both safe and effective in the most ideal conditions.
Our sleep dentistry treatment provides patients with the very deepest level of sedation. Dr. Ruparelia has treated thousands of patients with sleep dentistry and has corrected years of complex dental care trouble for them. During sleep dentistry appointments at Cascades Dental, a board-certified anesthesiologist keeps comfortably sedated and monitors them closely.
Dr. Ruparelia and Dr. Hagert can complete treatments that would normally take several visits in just one because a patient can remain comfortable during sleep dentistry. Many patients opt for sleep dentistry for two reasons: the comfort provided during treatment, and the convenience of completing dental work in as few appointments as possible.
