Your oral health is so important and affects your overall health, so it’s essential that you visit the dentist twice a year or as needed for maintenance and dental work. Patients can choose between oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, sedation.
There are different types of sedation dentistry options, including inhaled minimal sedation through nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, typically prescribed and taken in pill form before treatment. You’ll be given the best dental sedation option for your needs, and we’ll also consider your history, medications, and necessary procedures.
Your Sedation Dentistry Consultation
Before your visit, we’ll discuss what you can and can’t do before and after sedation. Each case is unique and depends on the patient, so we’ll outline expectations before proceeding with sedation dentistry treatment.
Dr. Holt and her team will make sure sedation lasts long enough for your dentist visit and procedure, but the exact amount of time you'll experience the effects of sedation will depends on the type of sedation dentistry used.
How Much Does Dental Sedation Cost?
The costs of dental sedation depend on each patient, and your dental insurance may cover it depending on your provider.
