Cost of Sedation Dentistry

dental consultation

The cost of sedation will depend on which method we use. Nitrous oxide tends to come with the lowest price, while general anesthesia is more expensive. Dental insurance usually does not cover sedation unless it is determined to be a medically necessary part of a procedure; for example, it is standard practice to use sedation as part of some types of oral surgery. Our team will give you an estimate for the cost of your sedation, and we can help you apply to finance your entire procedure, including the sedation, with CareCredit if necessary.
