Sedation Dentistry in Lexington Park, MD

Stress-Free Dental Visits with Sleep Dentistry

We understand that many patients suffer from dental anxiety and feel stressed before or during a dental visit. We have board certified oral surgeons available to administer IV sedation for our patients undergoing extensive dental treatment or for those who experience extreme dental anxiety. Whether you are getting dental implants or need to undergo advanced dentistry procedures, we can put together a custom treatment plan that includes sleep dentistry so you can look forward to a stress-free visit.


Sedation Dentistry from a Board Certified Oral Surgeon

Dr. Vivek Amin and Dr. Tamara Strouth work closely with board certified oral surgeons to ensure our patients have the option of IV sedation dentistry as part of their treatment plan. IV sedation may be the best option for patients undergoing a smile makeover and other more aggressive treatments. We monitor patients the entire time and the numbing effect does not wear off until hours later.

We also offer the option of oral sedation where the patient takes a pill before a procedure to induce a state of relaxation and calm. Nitrous oxide and local anesthesia are some other sedation dentistry options available to our patients.

Robert's Testimonial

"There's No Pain"

So I’ve always had anxiety going to the dentist ever since I was a young child. I’ve come from a place where dentistry, a long time ago, was not really catering to the patient. It was just ‘we’re gonna work on your mouth’ – and when I came here I had that same fear. They’ve totally changed that for me. There’s no pain, and they explain the procedures, how long it’s going to take, all the steps involved… It’s very comfortable to come and be here.
