At 16TH AVENUE DENTAL, we understand that a visit to the dentist isn’t always an enjoyable experience. Our goal is to ensure that your dental visits are comfortable and positive, which is why we offer Sedation Dentistry options.
At 16TH AVENUE DENTAL, Dr. My Le will explore which method of sedation best meets your individual needs. We offer the following methods of sedation:
Sedation Dentistry helps adults and children with dental fear and anxiety obtain necessary dental treatments. Dental sedation is used for dental services, such as teeth cleanings and checkups, restorative procedures, root canal therapy, dental implants, and more.
Sedation Dentistry is considered to be very safe. At 16TH AVENUE DENTAL, we ensure the safety of our Sedation Dentistry patients by using monitoring equipment during the procedure, which includes a pulse oximeter and oxygen equipment. Our Dentists are also required to have reversal medication agents on hand in the rare case of an adverse reaction to the sedatives.
Your blood pressure and pulse will be continually and carefully monitored for your safety. While you will be awake, you will be unaware of what’s taking place and will have little recollection if any, about the procedures completed at your dental appointment. Even long visits may appear to go by very quickly with oral sedation. Please keep in mind, that if you choose oral sedation, you will require a companion to escort you home where you can rest comfortably after your dental appointment.
Most dental insurance plans typically will not cover the cost associated with sedation dentistry. Since every dental plan is unique, we ask that you contact your dental insurance company before your appointment to determine if you may be eligible for coverage. Our dental administrative team may assist you by sending a preauthorization to your insurance company.
