Sedation Dentistry

Do you or anyone in your family suffer from dental anxiety or tooth sensitivity? About half of people in the U.S. report trouble visiting the dentist for those reasons, so it may be more common than you’d think. 

We’re happy to calm your anxiety or sensitivity with sedation dentistry. After an easy request, you can get the relief you need. Through laughing gas sedation, you’ll be calm and relaxed. You’ll be able to get the dental services that will improve your dental health and overall health. 

We can also supply blankets, a TV, lip balm, and other amenities. Just let us know how we can help! We can even set your appointment for the time of day that best suits your needs, even if it’s early in the morning or in the evening. 

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Have you ever procrastinated on going to the dentist because of anxiety? You might be relieved and grateful once you try sedation dentistry. Remember, we’re happy to use it. It only takes a quick request, and then you’ll have: 

Lower Anxiety

Once their anxiety is reduced, our patients who were most resistant to dentistry suddenly become advocates, telling everyone else about it. They’re amazed by the experience of feeling anxiety just disappear and dentistry suddenly feeling easy. Enjoy going to the dentist for once when you choose sedation dentistry with Centreville Dental Wellness Center.

Better Health

When our patients are no longer feeling anxious about coming to our office, they’re more willing to stop by for necessary appointments more often. Regular dentistry can improve and protect your overall health. Our services can prevent infections and tooth decay. Many areas of your life can be improved with dental health. 

Decreased Pain

Some patients are very sensitive to any pressure we apply to their teeth. Our laughing gas can help to reduce your dental sensitivity. It calms the part of the brain that creates stress and fear. It’s natural to avoid pain. But sedation will relieve anxiety, which will also make it easier for us to manage your tooth sensitivity—along with the other calming amenities we provide. 

You can ask for sedation dentistry during any service, even a routine checkup or cleaning. It’s very easy for us to give you sedation. We understand. Around half or more of all Americans have dental anxiety or sensitivity. Let us know if that includes you, and we can supply oral conscious sedation, along with other solutions.

What Is Laughing Gas Sedation?

Our sedation technique is to give the anxious patient a mask through which they will inhale laughing gas. This chemical produces a feeling of euphoria and relaxation. You will remain conscious enough that you can answer questions, but you won’t have to deal with your dental anxiety for the entire appointment.

Eliminating Your Fear of the Dentist

Patients with dental anxiety often have good reasons. Maybe your teeth or gums are sensitive. You might have felt a lot of pain in a previous appointment or been frightened by a team member’s behavior as a child. Whatever the cause, dental sedation can help!

Being able to schedule and sit through necessary dental services can prevent more fear and pain in the future. For example, we can catch infections in a tooth or on the gums—or oral cancer—before they progress too far, cause major damage, and need more serious procedures.

Oral conscious sedation can help your dental anxiety to the point where you can eventually not feel afraid at all! You’ll be able to make decisions that are best for your dental health. 

Request Sedation Dentistry at Centreville Dental Wellness Center

You can ask for dental sedation during any service—from major procedures to routine checkups. You don’t have to be embarrassed. We’re happy to help in every way we can. You can also batch several procedures together in a sedation dentistry appointment, getting them all done during one dose of sedation. 

Just contact Centreville Dental Wellness Center, and let us know what you need. If you feel anxious, you could even get a family member to call! We’ll help you feel comfortable and pain-free at the dentist.

What Our Patients Say

Dr Rena Vakay and her staff are truly the best. I have been going to the practice for many, many years and their professionalism is over the top. Long before Covid Centreville Dental Wellness has been top gold standard with office cleanliness. Dr Vakay is honest, bright, top rated and the best doctor I've had the pleasure of working with. The office is always in front of all the new technology. I can't say enough about this practice.

Kim M.

Dr Vakay is THE very best dentist ever. She is the only dentist who uses preventive dentistry rather than reactive. My teeth have never been in better condition. She measures my gums to be sure there is no change or recession every time. She also does beautiful cosmetic dentistry. I am proof!!!

Annie C.

Dr. Vakay and her assistant Christina are true artists. Their cosmetic dentistry skills are top notch. They made 5 new crowns for my upper front teeth and they look and feel beautiful and healthy. They were a pleasure to work with. When I brought to their attention that the color was a little brighter than I had anticipated, they offered to bleach my bottom teeth a second time (at no cost to me). That's true customer service.

Mary S.

I have been coming to Centreville Dental Wellness for 11 years, first to Dr. Judith Thomas and after she retired, to Dr. Jason Abel. My experience here has always been top notch and the entire office staff are professional and informed. I have had a variety of procedures and the office is good at getting me in on short notice, keeping me apprised of financial costs based on what my insurance will or will not cover, and making what could be a stressful time far less so. I highly recommend this practice across the board.

Louise M.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I have never waited more that 5 minutes to get in and seen by either the hygienist or Dr. Vakay. The teeth cleaning is the best I have ever had hands down! My teeth feel and look amazing after having a cleaning at Centreville Dental Wellness Center.

Colleen M.

Dr. Vakay's office is Very friendly, detailed and efficient with their dental care! Old school patient service that doesn't exist any more . She is a "diamond ", shiny star!

Jason Y.

I have been going to Centreville Wellness for over 20 years. First went there by chance (there was no Yelp at the time), but have continued to go based on quality of work, price and customer service. They have certainly made changes to their practice since I first started going there; all of which were good. Dr. Vakay knows whats going on and how to take care of her patients.

Rob M.

Our family has been going to this dental practice for years, even before Dr. Vakay and Dr. Abel were there. We stayed through the transition because of the wonderful care we received. Everyone of the staff with whom I have interacted have not only been great at their jobs, but cheerful, friendly and kind. I trust both doctors. They combine new technology and treatment with old-fashioned, personal care. I highly recommend the practice.
