Visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience for many people. Some patients avoid the dentist due to dental anxiety or a severe gag reflex. Fortunately, sedation dentistry offers a safe, relaxing way to undergo dental procedures. We offer several methods of sedation dentistry in Virginia to suit your needs.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Oral sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to help people relax when receiving dental treatment. While it’s often referred to as sleep dentistry, that doesn’t mean you’re asleep during the procedure. With dental sedation, patients are awake except for when under general anesthesia. Sleep dentistry can be used for a variety of procedures, including tooth cleanings and invasive treatments.
Sedation Dentistry Cost
As with most dental treatments, your sedation dentistry cost will depend on your unique situation. Fortunately, most sleep dentistry options can be affordable. Be sure to ask about our office’s financing plans, which can help you manage the cost of dental sedation.
Why Use Dental Sedation?
Many people avoid receiving the treatment they need due to fear or anxiety about the dentist. Sedation for dental treatment allows you to become fully relaxed and feel stress-free while at the dentist. Don’t let dental anxiety get in the way of your oral health. Call us today to learn more about sedation dentistry in Virginia.
Types of Sedation Dentistry
We offer a variety of dental sedation options. Sedation for dental treatment options include:
- Inhaled minimal sedation: This type of sedation involves breathing in nitrous oxide, otherwise known as “laughing gas,” through a mask. The gas helps you relax, and the dentist can control how much gas is administered.
- Oral sedation: The most common type of oral sedation dentistry, oral conscious sedation involves taking a pill like Halcion, which will make you drowsy. You’ll remain awake throughout the procedure, though some patients become groggy enough to sleep.
- IV sedation dentistry: IV sedation dentistry involves receiving the sedative through a vein, allowing you to relax quickly. The dentist can manually adjust the sedation level throughout the procedure.
- Deep sedation dentistry: During this form of sedation, the dentist administers medication that will make you fall deeply asleep. You will not be easily awakened until the anesthesia wears off or is reversed.
Dental Sedation Benefits
Sedation dentistry in Virginia offers many benefits. The main advantage is that you’ll receive the treatment you require without dental anxiety. You also won’t experience any pain throughout the procedure. Lastly, oral sedation dentistry can stop you from gagging during treatment.
Does Insurance Cover Dental Sedation?
Sedation dentistry insurance coverage varies depending on your case. Anesthesia that is deemed medically necessary is more likely to be covered. Be sure to check with your insurance provider before receiving sedation treatment.
How Long Does Dental Sedation Last?
The length of dental sedation depends on which type of sleep dentistry you receive. After inhaled sedation, many patients are able to drive a car afterward. Other types, such as IV sedation dentistry or general anesthesia, can take hours to wear off.

Our patients leave smiling
Terrified of the dentist due to a bad experience. Dr. Z and Rhea made me feel so at ease and the staff members were just as great. I only wish I had found your office much sooner. I will definitely come back and recommend you to all who are looking for a dentist.
I have been a patient of Dr. Miller for many years. He is a perfectionist in his field and he always insures that a procedure is done exactly right. I know it doesn’t come any better than that!
I feel my Cleaning by Masoon was very good and my Dental Check-up by Dr Miller was great. Both of them treated me very nice and made me feel welcome to be there.
All of the staff are caring, professional, and go out of their way to ensure that your experience is a great one!
Great service and care! . from front desk to the dr.s and the stuff. Thank you!
I hate going to the dentist as it is never a fun experience for me. Everyone is here is so nice and welcoming. The dentist is very kind and thorough with his explanations. The staff was members were all super friendly and reassuring. I am actually feeling much less stressed about my next few appointments there after my visit a few days ago.
I had a great experience yesterday at the Dental One Associate. Team was very friendly ,professional and knowledgeable .Thank you for your great service.
Dr.Valleru is a great Dentist….she knows I get easily nervous and has me at ease in no time….when she’s not in…I see Dr. Z…he is very awesome and keeps people calm too. They both explain everything that is happening and overall just great.
Have had a lot of dental work done here… my whole family… things always go well. Highly recommend… Robert
We have consistently received excellent care from Dental One Associates of Fairfax. They do great work but don’t look for ways to charge us more. They are so good about getting us in for emergencies and the dental surgeons they recommend when needed are top drawer. The staff in the office are all positive, friendly, professional, and helpful.
Been a patient for many years – even after leaving Virginia and settling in Maryland.
I have been with Dental One Associates for many years, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Every member of the staff is great, and I especially like Tyshia, who takes great care of me. Five stars!
Great staff from door to door.
Doctor and staff was very good!
Staff friendly and take me right on time for my appointment !
Always professionals, nice and they take good care of your smile.
I decided to pick this location as my primary dental office about 3 months ago. Since then I have had work done by Dr. Linn. He has been very informative, he is patient and sensitive to your needs. He is also very focused and desires to make sure things are done properly the first time. The office staff checks me in with smile and checks me out with a smile. I am very pleased with my decision.
I love Dental One, from the friendly and personable service at the front desk to the most professional Doctors and assistants. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else for my dental care.
I was worried when Dr. Berman retired that Dental One may not live up to my expectations. It hasn’t. It has exceeded them with courteous, professional staff who are never gruff despite a very busy office.
Customer service. From the minute I walked in, everyone was friendly and helpful. The dental assistant, as well as the gum specialist, was knowledgeable and explained everything clearly, and answered all my questions. Payment and explanation of the cost of the next visit was also very clear and they answered all my questions.
Been going for years, always outstanding service!

I really like Dr.K and her assistant. She is very informative and reassuring. I knew in the beginning that I would need a lot of work done.

I wasn’t in pain alot of pain at all and that is surprising given that I had both sides of my mouth worked on the same day. I’d recommend Dr K…

My last visit to a dentist was 2yrs ago and my experience was so bad that i didn’t want to even see another dentist. I am a new patient and was surprised with the care that the doctor and staff gave me from setting my first appointment and 2nd visit. From a warm welcome when walking thru their door to the Awesome care in the chair. Words cannot explain how at home they made me feel. I would high…

Today was my initial appointment and am quite pleased. Before I was called back could see the office was on point with efficiency. My new friend Kesha (Dental Assistant), introduced herself and performed all the necessary stuff for the formidable Dr. K so she could ascertain what my dental future had in store. I wasn’t presented with a bunch of stuff to buy, was given my prognosis and what I cou…

I love my dentist. Dr. Z is so patient, soft spoken and caring. I have been anxious in the past when going to the dentist. When I go to see him I’m calm. I just close my eyes and before I know it we are done. He talks me through whatever dental work I need. The staff is VERY professional. That is something that you usually don’t find in a dental office. I’m very pleased with the…

Anytime during my surgery if the doctor saw I was having any discomfort he asked if I was okay and gave me more numbing stuff anytime I felt the slightest pain. Great staff, everyone had a smile on their face and the two nurses helping with my surgery kept making me smile.
Dr Lin is thorough and very informative. Staff are helpful and sovle the problems.
I have been coming here for a few years now and always have a positive experience. The hygienists are gentle with procedures (I have had multiple teeth cleanings and a few cavities filled) but effective, and the team provides good check-ups without being alarmist and are all very knowledgeable and friendly. I’ve seen multiple hygienists and dentists at the practice and had good experiences w…
I have not been in to the office is a few years to my misunderstanding of name change not because of staff. every visit has been above my expectations–I am claustrophobic and have panic attacks and they put me at ease each time. gentle hands, soothing voices and caring is what I receive from each and every one of them. thank goodness I decided to correct my misunderstanding!!

Immaculate environment. Friendly, knowledgeable staff.
Got good treatment by hygienist and Dr. Lin. I think she will become my primary dentist now that Dr. Miller is practically retiring. I’m happy and comfortable with making the transition and other staff, especially Summer, have been super efficient and helpful.

Dental One Associates of Woodbridge definitely gets the highest rating from me, in every aspect of their practice! The entire staff is warm, friendly and very professional.
