You are not alone!

At the Djawdan Center for Implant and Restorative Dentistry we help people just like you everyday with sedation dentistry. Relax– with Sedation dentistry you can comfortably receive the dental treatment you want in just a few visits.

How does it work?

It begins by calling our Annapolis dentist office. We understand that this is the most difficult step for most people with dental anxiety, so we promise to do our best to make you feel comfortable- even over the phone.


Dr. Djawdan will personally meet with you in the privacy and comfort of his consultation suite. We will gather information regarding your health and get to know you. What you would like to achieve. If you are comfortable, we will take digital x-rays and oral images to help assess the current health of your mouth. This will be achieved with your physical and emotional comfort in mind. You will never be judged or made to feel embarrassed. We are honored to have the opportunity to help people restore their smile and confidence.


We offer several types of sedation to meet your needs and ensure your confidence and comfort during treatment:

  • Oral sedation: administered in pill form, oral sedation allows patients to feel relaxed while in control of their bodily functions
  • Inhalation sedation: known as “laughing gas”, this common form of sedation enables complete relaxation while in control of bodily functions and alert
  • IV sedation: the only Annapolis general dentist certified in this type of sedation, Dr. Djawdan offers IV sedation to enable patients to be asleep throughout treatment while being monitored to ensure continued comfort.

We encourage our clients to share their loftiest goal with us without fear of being pressured so that we can help them explore all of the possibilities. Dr. Djawdan will review the range of solutions you have to include number of visits and budgets. We will put this information into a power point presentation for you to reflect upon as you consider your treatment options. We firmly believe in supporting our clients in making the best choice of treatment for themselves.

Preparing for your sedation visit: We will provide you with a prescription for a sedative to take the night before your first appointment to ensure that you get a restful sleep and another to take about an hour prior to your appointment to ensure that you arrive relaxed.

Your treatment appointment: You will arrive at our Annapolis dental office relaxed and ready for the next level of sedation. Dr. Djawdan will setup your IV sedation so that we can create the most comfortable and safest sedation experience. Our experience sedation team will monitor you throughout your visit.
