Fairfax Dentist Dr. Riaz Rayek Discusses Sedation Dentistry Options
Fairfax dentist, Dr. Riaz Rayek, offers several sedation dentistry options for patients who are fearful or overly anxious.
FAIRFAX, VA, September 10, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For the past seven years, Dr. Rayek has been a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS). While being a member, he has performed hundreds of conscious sedation cases for fearful patients. He continues to seek and receive additional specialized education and training to further hone his dentistry skills.
Furthermore, when choosing Dr. Rayek of Smiles at Fairfax Corner, patients can feel at ease and confident during appointments. The dental office works closely with the Horizon Anesthesia Group, who are also part of the Fairfax Hospital Anesthesia Group. With the combination of these board certified anesthesiologists and Dr. Rayek's skills and expertise, patients can expect a relaxing, anxiety-free dental appointment with sedation dentistry.
Conscious Sedation Dentistry Option
Oral conscious sedation is typically given in pill format to patients who feel overly anxious about going to the dentist. Even though patients will feel completely relaxed and anxiety-free, he or she will not be put to sleep, however. Some patients might fall asleep on their own, though!
If patients have a fear of needles, conscious sedation is a viable option to get the dentistry needed for a healthy, clean mouth.
General Anesthesia Sedation Dentistry Option
Since the board certified anesthesiologists of the Horizon Anesthesia Group work closely with Dr. Rayek, patients have the option to be completely asleep during their appointment-- thanks to general anesthesia sedation dentistry.
Also known as full anesthesia, general anesthesia allows patients to sleep throughout their entire dental appointment, unlike other sedation options. This option is perfect for overly fearful and overly anxious patients.
Choose the Sedation Dentistry Option Best for You
Whether patients need nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas), conscious sedation, or general anesthesia, Dr. Rayek and his talented, experienced team offer unparalleled dentistry services. Dr. Rayek helps patients understand the importance of sedation dentistry and how sedation benefits patients who are fearful.
Patients are not expected to understand the complexities of sedation dentistry. Therefore, Dr. Rayek and his team will help patients decide which type of sedation is best.
