Keep reading to discover how you can benefit from sedation dentistry.
During your initial consultation, your dentist will provide you with sedation dentistry options and how you would like the sedatives to be administered. We provide two types of sedation administration methods:
With a local anesthetic and your choice of sedation, you won’t feel pain or discomfort during the procedure. During the procedure, our dentists and team will periodically check in with you and alleviate any pain or discomfort.
After the procedure, the anesthetic and sedation will wear off and you may feel some soreness and discomfort. This can be alleviated by taking over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses. If you continue to feel soreness or discomfort, call our London office at (519) 777-2020 to schedule your appointment.
Most insurance companies should be able to cover a portion of your cost. We recommend you speak with your insurance provider beforehand to learn more about your coverage plan. The cost depends on certain factors like what treatment you’re receiving, the type of sedation used, and your insurance coverage.
During your initial consultation, your dentist will provide you with the treatment timeline as well as the estimated cost and payment options we provide. If you have any questions about your insurance coverage, call our London office at (519) 777-2020 to speak with one of our knowledgeable staff members.
