It’s not uncommon to have anxiety about an upcoming dental appointment. However, if your fear or anxiety has caused you to delay important dental procedures or avoid the dentist altogether, it’s time to take a closer look at sedation dentistry. Of all of the options available, IV sedation continues to be the preferred method of sedation dentistry for many of our patients. Our patients like IV sedation because it offers a safe, effective and pain-free dental experience. We like it because we can focus our attention on doing what we do best: providing high-quality dental care and making your smile beautiful.
With IV sedation dentistry, we utilize Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNAs) to administer and monitor the drugs. These highly trained professionals – most of whom we’ve worked with for years – use techniques and medications that take effect quickly and reduce the “hang-over effect” or grogginess often associated with other sedation methods.
Cost of Treatment with IV Sedation and Dental Insurance
The exact amount you pay for treatment will vary based on a number of factors, including your dental treatment plan, insurance coverage and other variables. We work with dental insurance companies and file insurance claims on your behalf. Most insurance plans do not offer full coverage, so we will estimate your expected payment for the remaining balance. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, cash, checks and payment plans from Care Credit. We do not accept Medicaid.
