Sedation dentistry refers to the sedation of a patient during a procedure. There are various forms of sedation that a dentist may choose from, and there are different levels of sedation dentistry. The various types and levels of sedation all have their particular benefits and are each appropriate for different situations.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
The benefits of sedation dentistry are substantial. One of the most obvious benefits to sedation dentistry is the extreme reduction of anxiety experienced during the procedure.
Sedation dentistry is also beneficial because it can help reduce anxiety. Many patients put off scheduling appointments with their dentist because the thought of having work done is anxiety provoking. Sedation dentistry helps alleviate these concerns.
Sedation dentistry also removes or significantly reduces tooth and gum sensitivity, which in turn can reduce a patient’s gag reflex.
Finally, sedation dentistry allows your dentist to work faster and more effectively, which means you will be able to get out of the chair quicker and start your road to recovery!
Certain procedures, such as surgical tooth extractions, implant placement, root canal treatment, and periodontal surgery, will most likely require sedation dentistry. Along with these, the use of sedation for other procedures is oftentimes decided at the discretion of the dentist. They may decide to provide sedation for procedures that may be more intensive, or they may decide to provide sedation for patients that are extremely anxious.
Like most dental procedures, what is covered by your insurance depends on your individual insurance plan. Still, most insurance plans cover sedation dentistry procedures. Keep in mind that your insurance plan may not cover 100% of the costs, so be prepared to pay some of the costs out of pocket. If you do not currently have dental coverage or would like to discuss payment options, please contact our staff to see what
opportunities may be available.
