What is Dental Sedation?

Dental sedation offers a stress-free way to undergo a variety of procedures, including dental cleanings and invasive procedures like root canals. Sometimes referred to as sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry employs a variety of methods to keep patients comfortable during treatment. Sleep dentistry may involve oral medication, IV sedation, and other treatments.

How Much Does Sedation Dentistry Cost?

The sedation dentistry cost will vary depending on the type you receive. Your dentist will go over the potential costs before you receive treatment. Give our office a call to learn more about our affordable sedation dentistry in Indiana.

Is Dental Sedation Right for Me?

Those who suffer from dental anxiety may benefit from sedation. Sedation for dental treatment can ease stress and help you feel comfortable throughout your dental procedures. Many people find that they no longer fear coming to the dentist once they’ve experienced dental sedation.

Types of Dental Sedation

We offer several dental sedation treatments to suit your needs. Your dentist will help you choose the option that’s right for you.

Inhaled sedation dentistry: With this type of sedation, you’ll breath in nitrous oxide, also called “laughing gas.” The gas allows you to relax as the dentist performs procedures.
Oral sedation dentistry: During oral sedation dentistry, you will take medication that causes you to become drowsy. Some people will remain somewhat awake, but relaxed. Other people may feel relaxed enough to fall asleep.
IV sedation dentistry: IV sedation dentistry involves medication being administered through a vein, which works quickly to ease your anxiety. Medication can be adjusted as needed throughout treatment.
Deep sedation dentistry: With this type of sedation, you’ll be placed under general anesthesia. The treatment is ideal for those who require invasive procedures, as you’ll fall completely asleep.

Advantages of Sleep Dentistry

The primary advantage of sleep dentistry is that it allows you to enjoy a stress-free dental visit. Those with low pain tolerance or severe gag reflexes will benefit from using dental sedation. Don’t let your dental issues become worse due to fear. Call our office today to learn more about sedation dentistry in Indiana.

Is There Sedation Dentistry Insurance?

In some cases, dental sedation is considered a luxury treatment, like teeth whitening, that is not covered by insurance. However, sedation that is deemed medically necessary may receive coverage. Consult with your insurance provider before receiving sedation to find out about your options.

How Long Does It Take for Dental Sedation to Wear Off?

When you visit one of our dentists, he or she will advise you on what to expect following sedation for dental treatment. People who receive laughing gas can usually drive home after their procedure. However, those who opt for IV sedation dentistry or general anesthesia can take longer to recover.
