Ease your anxieties with affordable sedation dental care in Wake Forest, VA
It is estimated that 30 to 40 million Americans avoid going to the dentist due to anxiety. Avoiding the dentist negatively impacts a patient’s dental health. In an effort to ease patient stress while maintaining oral health, Dr. Edmond Suh offers affordable sedation dental care for patients in Wake Forest, VA.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry involves using medications to help patients remain calm throughout their dental procedures. It is not just for patients with a fear of the dentist. Sedation may be recommended for patients who:
- Need a significant amount of dental work
- Cannot tolerate pain
- Have sensitive teeth
- Are unable to sit still in the chair
Along with the benefit of his state-of-the-art facilities and top quality technology, Dr. Suh offers conscious oral sedation. Following the doctor’s instructions, an oral medication is taken prior to the appointment to allow time for the sedative to take effect. Once the medication sets in, patients notice a feeling of deep relaxation without any fears or anxieties. The patient does remain awake and aware during the procedure; however, they are still under the influence of a sedative. The effects of the medication wear off gradually following your dental appointment. Transportation is needed to and from the office.
Affording sedation dentistry
Insurance companies help cover the cost of some dental procedures. It is important for patients to check with their dental insurance prior to their appointments to determine what procedures, including the use of sedation, are covered. That way there are no hidden costs or surprises. Even if sedation dentistry is not covered, it is still affordable. Oral conscious sedation is generally less expensive than IV sedation or general anesthesia. Usually the deeper the sedation is, the higher the cost of the treatment.
It is hard to put a price on your oral health. With personalized care and conveniences like sedation dentistry, make an appointment with Dr. Suh today for a more comfortable dental experience. 919 556 6200
