About Anesthesia and Oral Sedation 

Sometimes, sedation dentistry is the best course of action. Nitrous oxide is one example of an anti-anxiety agent that may be provided to assist in relaxation during dental procedures. Often, an anti-anxiety agent is used in conjunction with local anesthesia to give patients the most comfortable dental care experience. Conscious sedation is used to relax patients but still keep them responsive. Our Falls Church sedation dentist utilizes different methods of administering sedatives — orally, via inhalation, or a combination of both. 

Safety is Top Priority

We adhere to American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines to ensure all sedatives and pain medications are administered safely. In addition, our dental team is CPR qualified. Millions of patients safely receive sedation dentistry procedures annually. It is important to communicate with Dr. Morabito about medical conditions you may have, medications you may be taking, or any allergies you have to keep you safe. Our staff will educate you on both the benefits and what to expect out of sedation dentistry so that you can make an informed decision about your dental treatment. 

Before Your Procedure

There are a number of procedures for which sedation dentistry can be used. They include but are not limited to: 

  • Deep cleanings
  • Extractions 
  • Dental implants
  • Bone grafting  

Prior to your procedure, you will receive a dental consultation. This consultation will educate you on the details of your procedure as well as sedation dentistry and what to expect. With oral sedation, you will need to have someone drive you home from your appointment and stay with you for 24 hours following your procedure.

After Your Procedure 

The quality dental care we provide doesn’t end when you leave our office. Dr. Morabito calls his patients in the evening following their appointment to ensure there are no problems or concerns. We ask that your driver call our office to let us know you have arrived home safely.

Dr. Morabito and your wonderful staff - Thank you so much for your kind, welcoming, and kid-friendly attention you gave me and my sons when we came in for the Harrison's 1st dental checkup. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The Harrisons

Dr. Morabito is an awesome dentist, a great personality with the hift of humor, he is personable, and amazingly manages to choose the very best people to work for him. They are all excellent and most of all - caring and genuine. And with my dental problems, believe me I have had my share of being treated like a "number." I recently flew back to Falls Church from Kansas City to have him do my implants, because I don't trust anyone else.
