Once we’ve completed your treatment and you’ve had time to recover from the effects of oral conscious sedation, it’s likely that you will remember very little about the time you spent here in our Daytona Beach practice, which is an ideal outcome for many patients. All we ask when undergoing this effective sedation method is that you have a trusted friend or family member escort you both to and from the practice.

What is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Nitrous oxide is provided to the patient through a mask that fits comfortably over your nose, and within minutes of breathing in, you should feel more relaxed. The biggest benefit of nitrous oxide is that the effects wear off very quickly once the mask is removed, which means you can get back to your regular routine without having to endure any inconvenient downtime.

Benefits of Dental Sedation

Dental sedation isn’t right for everyone, but if you choose to utilize this service, you can expect a number of benefits, including:

  • Reduced stress – many people experience anxiety or phobia related to dental office visits, making even the gentlest treatments a struggle. Sedation can dramatically improve your experience in the dental office, so you can receive the dentistry services you need without the stress that you don’t.
  • Decreased discomfort – if you have sensitive teeth, gums, or gag reflex, sedation can make dental care much more comfortable. This is also true for those patients who have physical pain or damage that makes extended time in the dental chair very uncomfortable.
  • Saved time – because we can complete numerous our complex dentistry services all in one appointment, you won’t need to worry about visiting us multiple times to complete more advanced dental treatments.
  • Improved safety – for kids, those with cognitive impairment, and patients who are medically compromised, sedation during dental treatment can actually make these procedures much safer, allowing us to perform the necessary treatment without unnecessarily taxing these individuals.

Cost of Dental Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation will typically cost less than $200 out of pocket for most patients. This form of sedation is often covered by your dental insurance policy, so you can offset the out of pocket costs by maximizing these benefits. The oral sedatives we prescribe are often covered by your medical insurance plans, and many patients only have to pay their insurance policy’s prescription copay. We’re happy to work with you to make the most of your available dental insurance benefits to cover the cost of sedation dentistry, and we are happy to work with CareCredit to provide low and no interest payment plans to fit the costs of dental sedatives into almost any budget.
