With safe and effective sedation at Expressions Dental Care, you can get dental treatments in a comfortable and safe environment. We can offer mild oral sedative or calming nitrous oxide gas to help you relax throughout the procedure.

We have helped many patients who have been delaying dental major work over the years attain their dream smiles. With dental sedation, anyone can get the confidence to undergo complex dental treatments!

Oral Conscious Sedation

At Expressions Dental Care, we offer safe oral conscious sedation in Herndon VA. Before or at your appointment, you will have to swallow a small pill prescribed by Dr. Han. When the sedative pill starts to work, our team will help you sit back in the dental chair and become familiar with the amenities around you.

While you will be relaxed and comfortable, you won’t be asleep. You will be awake enough to respond to the dentist’s questions or execute his commands. You will also be able to ask any questions you have. However, you won't be able to remember the details of the procedure. You will feel like the entire treatment was just a few moments long. In the end, you will be able to leave with a brilliant new smile.

Laughing Gas or Nitrous Oxide Sedation

One of the most popular methods of sedation in Herndon VA is laughing gas. We provide controlled and safe nitrous oxide sedation at Expressions Dental Care. At the beginning of the procedure, our dentist will place a breathing mask over your nose. You will wear this mask throughout your treatment. Through the mask, you will inhale controlled quantities of laughing gas during the entire procedure. You will sense a feeling of euphoria. While you will remain awake, you won’t be aware of the details of the procedure. After the mask is removed at the end of the procedure, the effect of the gas will wear off quickly. You may even be able to drive home yourself.
