Oral Sedation

McQuiston Dental provides oral sedation to help you feel relaxed throughout your entire visit with our dentist. Oral sedation is a form of sedation dentistry that is taken in the form of a pill to help you have a comfortable experience at our office. It is simple and easy to use.

Before your appointment, we will meet with you to discuss your sedation options and determine if oral sedation is the best method for you. If you do receive oral sedation, be sure to have someone drive you to and from your appointment. Though you will remain awake during your procedure, you will be extremely relaxed and may feel drowsy during and after treatment. Please be sure to follow all specific instructions when taking the pill, and be aware that you may not remember many of the details of your dental experience.

The benefits of using oral sedation include:

  • Simple & convenient pill
  • No use of needles
  • Amnesic, comfortable experience
  • More affordable than other forms of sedation

We are committed to ensuring your dental appointment is as relaxing and stress free as possible. Call 703-354-0111 today to make your appointment with Dr. Scott and to learn more about oral sedation in Alexandria, Virginia.
