Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety can make you delay or even avoid trips to the dentist, leading to serious oral health issues.

At The Smile Center, we offer sedation dentistry services that allow you to relax and feel completely stress-free during your appointment.

So how can dental sedation help you?

Sedation Dentistry Can Make Your Visit a Relaxing Experience

Improved Comfort

At The Smile Center, we work hard to make sure our patients are as comfortable as possible during their appointment. Dental sedation can ensure you stay relaxed and pain-free during the treatments you need. 

Fewer Appointments

Since you will be completely relaxed, dental sedation allows Dr. Scott Parr and Dr. Tara Frey to complete your treatment more quickly, often eliminating the need for a second appointment.

Peace of Mind

Sedation can reduce or completely erase feelings of anxiety and fear. For many patients, undergoing just a single procedure with sedation helps them change negative thought patterns and overcome their dental phobia.

So what are your sedation options?

Feeling Anxious about the Dentist Is Fairly Common

Your Dental Experience

When you visit the Smile Center, we will go to great lengths to make you feel at home in our office. Warm blankets, headphones with relaxing music, and other comforting amenities will help you take your mind off of your treatment. If it's been a while since your last dental visit, Dr. Parr and Dr. Frey can reverse years of damage in a single appointment. If you are sensitive to the sights, sounds, or smells of a dental office, oral conscious sedation will keep you from noticing any of it. Most of our sedation dentistry patients are left with no memory of their procedures and, after a short nap at home, feel perfectly rested and alert.

After one experience with sedation dentistry at our Virginia Beach office, you'll understand why so many people choose to be sedated during their appointments. Keep your bright, beautiful smile in excellent health, without sacrificing your peace of mind.
