Sedation dentistry offers individuals with general anxiety about going to the dentist or fears about a specific dental procedure the opportunity to have a stress free and more comfortable experience. Utilizing safe and controlled sedation techniques prior to the dental procedure the patient is eased into a state of complete relaxation. This eliminates any discomfort, pain, and preoperative anxiety that may be associated with a particular dental visit. With sedation dentistry patients typically feel more at ease post-operatively as they have little or no memory of the actual moment-to-moment dental procedure.
For many patients, oral conscious or nitrous oxide sedation just isn’t enough to ensure comfort dentistry. We can offer total relaxation with IV sedation or general anesthesia. During IV sedation, you will still remain conscious so that you can understand your dentist and respond to his questions and commands. Although you are awake, the IV sedation will induce a state of deep relaxation that will keep you pain-free and peaceful throughout your procedure. IV sedation can also dull the details of the procedure and make your visit feel like five minutes or less!
Patients who have never had a pleasant dental visit in the past can change their perception of dentistry with general anesthesia. General anesthesia draws the patient into a sleep-like state so that they can snooze easily through their dental procedure. Many children and adult patients finally have success with improving their smiles when they take advantage of general anesthesia at the Dental Excellence Integrative Center.
We work with an anesthesiologist who will take care of your sedation needs here at Dental Excellence Integrative Center.
Whatever needs you may have, we would be pleased to help you create a customized dental care plan that will lead to a stress-free relationship with dentistry. Now you can wake up with a smile!

If you are a nervous person when it comes to the dental experience, it can be difficult to get the dental care that you need. What’s the answer? Well, you could take IV drugs or narcotic pills, but there are side-effects associated with those methods, and for some people, including recovering addicts, it is not possible to use narcotic options at all. Luckily, you can avail yourself of natural relaxation treatment with NUCalm.
First of all, it is reassuring to know that this is 100% safe and has been proven to work. You will be able to feel deep relaxation, as natural relaxation treatment with NuCalm settles you into a pre-sleep state. The system requires a total of four easy steps, after which you will be able to get the necessary dental work without any of the difficulties that you would feel otherwise. The entire process only takes about three minutes and within five minutes or less, you will feel totally and completely relaxed.
Our doctors in Del Ray, Alexandria’s first step of natural relaxation treatment with NuCalm is to apply either a topical cream or chew a dietary supplement that serves to slow the effects of your body’s adrenaline. This is the only product that has this specific formula for creating safe and fast relaxation. The second step is a microcurrent stimulation patch behind each ear, and then noise canceling headphones delivering the result of proprietary neuroacoustic software to guide your brain to its pre-sleep stage. And the final component is an eye mask to block light. That’s all there is to it.
