Sedation Dentistry Makes Dentistry Comfortable and Pain Free
Are you concerned about dental procedures because of pain, anxiety…?
Through a specialist performing sedation… now almost all dental treatments can be…
- Done pain-free
- Completed with minimum number of visits
- Memory-free of the surgical procedure
What is sedation and how safe is it in the dental office?
Sedation Dentistry is when a licensed, specially trained provider helps to alleviate the pain & anxieties of a patient who is in a comfortable, safe state of sleep while dental work is performed. Often, you may hear the term:”twilight sleep”.
Yes. Sedation dentistry is safe. Sedation dentistry is not general anesthesia. While sleeping comfortably, you will never feel pain or discomfort of any kind. All of your vital signs are monitored through out the length of the procedure.
How will I need to prepare?
Our staff will personally contact you prior to your appointment, for a pre-operative screening to assess your health history. Please be as complete as possible in your responses. Instructions will be reviewed at this time. All of your questions will be completely answered.
Will I be able to return to work?
It is not recommended that you return to work the same day after a procedure that involves sedation.
Will I be able to drive home?
Because recovery time varies, safety requirements include having a responsible adult to drive you home and to be present during the recovery time.
Questions Regarding In-Office Sedation Services
Like all anesthesia services, the patient is billed separately by the anesthesiologist. Fees are discussed directly with the patient and are based on the duration of the anticipated procedure.
Insurance Reimbursement for Sedation Services
Some dental insurance do cover sedation services. Patients are responsible for anesthesia fees at the time of treatment, but they will be provided the appropriate documentation for insurance submission.
