How Sedation Dentistry Feels
Pain-free sedation dentistry (also known as twilight dentistry) sedates you but does not put you completely to sleep. You will be awake during your dental procedure but believe you were asleep, and the best part is, you won’t feel a thing.
How Sedation Dentistry Works
Dr. Ross will determine the level of sedation required to reduce your fear, manage the pain, and ensure your safety. Level of sedation ranges from minimal to moderate to deep, meaning you could be awake but relaxed or completely unconscious. Most patients remember very little or nothing at all about the procedure.
Sedation Dentistry Methods
Unconscious sedation is a sleep dentistry procedure involving general anesthesia – most patients do not need this level of sedation to eliminate their dental fears or pain. Your risk is also higher with unconscious sedation.
Other methods of sedation include oral sedation (talking a pill very similar to valium), IV sedation (allows the dentist to continually control the level of sedation), and nitrous oxide (aka laughing gas).
Cost of Sedation Dentistry
The cost of sedation dentistry depends on your insurance coverage, dentist, location, and type of sedation. In suburbs of Milwaukee, the cost can vary from a hundred dollars to a few thousand depending on the type of sedation used. Nitrous oxide is the most popular gentle dentistry procedure and usually costs around $25 - $100 or more.
The other methods mentioned above, like IV and anesthesia, are mainly used for oral surgery, so the price is much higher than a regular nitrous oxide procedure. Keep in mind, sedation is a separate cost from the dental procedure and is usually not covered by insurance.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
Sedation dentistry is very predictable, and when a qualified provider tailors treatment for each patient it is a safe and effective way to quell fear and facilitate important dental treatments.
Consult your doctor before sedation dentistry via anesthesia if you’re obese, have sleep apnea, or other major health concerns. Other sedation options, like numbing cream or laughing gas, are perfect for people who can’t sit still and have anxiety during their dental appointments. Sedation dentistry is a very safe procedure. It’s productive, almost painless, and keeps you calm during the whole process.
Sedation Dentistry for Children
Managing a child’s pain and anxiety during dental visits is essential to establish good oral health. Sedation dentistry can be used safely and successfully to provide dental treatment for children. It’s important for your dentist to meet and evaluate your child to determine the best course of action.
Sedation Dentistry while Pregnant
Typically, sedation dentistry is not recommended for pregnant patients. There are exceptions, so talk to your dentist if you have questions about safe and achievable dental treatments during your pregnancy.
At Ross Dental we go over your medical history with you to ensure nothing goes wrong during sedation. With us you’ll feel safe, calm, and comfortable.
