As we say on our home page, we understand how you might feel “anxious” about needing a root canal…
However, we also acknowledge that some people would need much stronger language to describe how they feel about it. That’s why your endodontists, here at SAE, have teamed up with dentist anesthesiologists to provide you a stress-free endodontic treatment experience through dental sedation. It’s the perfect choice for people who experience extreme anxiety. Dental sedation is also helpful to patients who have difficulty controlling their gag reflex. It also saves the day for patients unable, for any number of reasons, to cooperate in their dental treatment. Regardless of why you need it…
Modern medicine has rendered sedation effective, reliable, and extremely safe. When dental sedation is for you, a licensed dentist anesthesiologist will sedate and monitor you, while we care for your endodontic needs. You just rest.
Dental Sedation And Insurance Coverage
Many insurance policies DO NOT reimburse for anesthesia services for dental procedures. Please check with your insurance carrier if you have questions regarding your coverage. The fee for dental anesthesia is separate and paid directly to the anesthesiologist.
Qualifying For Sedation
Most patients qualify for the peaceful, painless, time-saving experience of dental sedation. However, special preparations may be required if you:
- Are diabetic
- Have certain heart conditions
- Suffer from asthma
- Or you have other medical conditions identified
Nonetheless a licensed dentist anesthesiologist will review your specific situation and advise you whether or not sedation is a path you should pursue.
