Sedation Options

We want you to feel comfortable & relaxed during your treatment. If you’re still anxious, we can help! Review our options for sedation:

Inhaled Sedation

For inhaled sedation you breathe in nitrous oxide — otherwise known as “laughing gas” — combined with oxygen through a mask that’s placed over your nose to help you relax. Your dentist can control the amount of sedation you receive, and the gas tends to wear off quickly. This is the only form of sedation where you may be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.

Oral Sedation

For oral sedation, you take a pill prescribed by the dentist prior to your appointment. Typically, the pill is a benzodiazepine, and it’s usually taken about an hour before the procedure. The pill will make you drowsy, although you will still be awake. Some people become groggy enough from oral sedation to actually fall asleep during the procedure. They usually can, though, be awakened with a gentle shake.

IV Sedation /
General Anesthesia

Please speak to the doctor about these options during your consult if you feel that a stronger form of sedation would be more beneficial to you.

Office Policy

Fees

The fee for your endodontic treatment will be based on the extent of treatment. During your first visit we will discuss the probable number of visits, their length, and the fees involved. Our office will direct-bill to most insurance companies for your convenience. Any balance not covered by your insurance will be due at time of treatment, unless a payment plan has been made prior to treatment.

Common Questions

Will the treatment be painful?

We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. If treatment is needed, we will inject a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.

Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?

This is possible, however it will depend on the type of appointment we have scheduled with you. For most root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the office 12 months after the procedure was finished. Our office will send a reminder notice to you when you are due for a recall appointment.
