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

Smiling woman is calm and comfortable because dental sedation helped with her fear of the dentist in Centreville, VAPatients 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.

What Our Patients Say

Am I an anxious dental patient? YES!!! BUT, I am so thankful for Centreville Dental Wellness Center. Walking in the front door for an appointment, I am ALWAYS welcomed so warmly by the staff. They have the brightest smiles and emit such positive energy, and it's obvious they enjoy their jobs and each other. So thankful for the dental hygienist who is super encouraging to me, reminds me to breathe and relax my shoulders (even when I'm not even aware how my body is reacting!) I've been forever impacted by Dr. Vakay's technician during dental procedures who has squeezed my hand to give me strength -- such a small gesture but so helpful that I've paid this forward many times for others who are anxious! Dr. Vakay is always supportive, encouraging and emits such strength herself that I believe her and trust her judgment and recommendations. I loved hearing her say at my last visit regarding her job, "it is my joy and my purpose." There is no doubt she is doing what she is called to do! AND with JOY!

Joyce M.

I went to see Dr Vakay to get a dental appliance for my sleep apnea and ended up switching to the office for my routine dental care as well. The whole staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they made me feel very comfortable and valued. I honestly have never received such a thorough cleaning before and my snoring has stopped. Very happy with my experience!

Mary K.

I broke a front tooth crown off at the gum line. Dr. Abel was able to see me within a couple of hours After assessing the damage he presented me with several options for a repair and devised a way to hold a temporary tooth in place. Permanent repair is scheduled. I couldnt be happier with the care I received.

Elaine M.

I just recently moved to Northern Virginia and Centreville Dental Wellness Center was recommended to me and also had great reviews online. My first appointment was 23Jun2023 and everyone from the ladies at the front desk to Dr. Abel and his assistant were outstanding. Thrilled to have found this amazing team!!

Nina A.

Dr Abel, the front desk, hygienist team and everyone in between is At. I have gone to CDWC for years and sometimes travel 2+ hours for a visit. They provide organized, and trustworthy service, but more importantly personable with their care.

J K.

Centreville Dental Wellness was and is an amazing place. I had multiple issues and they were very patient with me. They are very experienced and know their stuff. I love them all particularly Dr Abel who took a lot of time with me and made sure I was straight. I pray that God continues to bless them and their business.

Arlene D.

I highly recommend Centreville Dental Wellness Center! I always have a great, smooth experience here. Dr.s Vakay and Abel are outstanding dentists, professional as well as friendly and approachable. The staff is efficient, welcoming and caring. I've been patient for years and cannot say enough great things about this practice.


WOW! I look amazing!! ; My 2 front teeth were worn and chipped. It affected my smile and confidence. After the restorative (yet gentle) work by the team at Centreville Dental Wellness, I can truly say this practice is second to none! The crowns look so natural and I'm so glad I can smile again!! When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas... said "my 2 front teeth" and thanks to the masterful cosmetic work done by Dr. Vacay and her assistant Christina, my Christmas wish came true! Gotta give a shout out to the friendly and supportive front office staff as well, Tonia, Sylvia and Sogand. Merry Christmas to all!!

Anastasia P.

Dr. Vakay and her team are excellent. They are careful, thorough, and attentive to the patient's concerns. They take the time to explain how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. I have always been completely satisfied.

Bruce S.

I've only ever been to one dentist, and don't have any plans to change that! Dr. Vakay, Dr. Abel, and the entire staff at Centreville Dental Wellness Center provide a patient experience that is both timelessly reliable and constantly improving. Recently, I came to them with jaw pain related to TMJ, and after real discussion concerning all my options, they set me up with a kois product that has eliminated the pain and dramatically improved my range of motion. It's been a true success story!

Jake W.

Ok, this is the first review I have EVER written. This morning I had a procedure done by Dr. Vakay with her assistant Christina, that was, without exception, the best experience at a dentist office I have ever encountered. The professionalism and expertise between these two was nothing short of a 'dance." | felt that seamless interaction, put me at ease. The front desk is wonderful to work with. I left another practice in Haymarket because of the way they handled the financial. I have great dental insurance and was told as I was sitting in the chair, that the doctor would not do the procedure unless I gave them a credit card. At which point I demanded to see the doctor and told him I was aghast at his greater interest in getting paid than my teeth and walked out. This is how a dental office should run, and they have hit a very high mark as the daughter of an orthodontist. Bravo Team Centreville Wellness.
