What Sets Us Apart

Comfort Dentistry & Sedation

Special Needs Dentistry

Dental Anxiety & Pediatric Dentistry

General Anesthesia

At the Center for Dental Anesthesia, we also offer general anesthesia options for procedures. General anesthesia draws you into a sleep-like state so that you can snooze easily through your dental procedure. Many children and adult patients are finally able to endure a dental procedure when they take advantage of general anesthesia at the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria. Whatever needs you may have, we would love to help you create a customized dental care plan that will lead to a stress-free relationship with dentistry. Learn More

IV Sedation

For many patients, oral conscious or laughing gas sedation just isn’t enough to ensure comfort dentistry. We can offer total relaxation with IV sedation. During IV sedation, you remain conscious so that you can understand your dentist and respond to his questions or instructions. Although you are awake, the IV sedation will induce a state of deep relaxation that will keep you pain-free and peaceful throughout your procedure. IV sedation can also dull the details of the procedure and change how you experience time, making your visit feel significantly shorter! Learn More
