Sedation Dentistry Available at Top-Rated Minot Dentist Office

MINOT, ND – The team at Dental Care Associates in Minot, ND, are happy to offer sedation dentistry to their patients. This option allows those with high anxiety about dental procedures to receive quality care with significantly less stress.

Research suggests that between 13% and 24% of people worldwide are afraid of dental procedures. This fear ranges from mild nervousness to an extreme and disabling phobia, making it difficult for the person to receive the care they need to maintain a healthy smile.

As a solution to this, dentists such as the Dental Care Associates staff have begun to offer sedation dentistry. Moderate sedation is used to offer patients a painless experience; the most common methods are to use nitrous oxide (often called “laughing gas”), an oral conscious sedative usually in pill or syrup form, or intravenous sedation for more intense procedures.

Benefits of sedation dentistry include:

  • The calming of stress and anxiety surrounding a procedure
  • Elimination of pain associated with some procedures such as root canals and other dental surgeries
  • Ensuring that all patients are able to receive high-quality care without the fear of pain keeping them from seeking it

Sedation dentistry varies in price depending on the method used, but can start at around $25-$100. Though it is not often covered by dental insurance, you should still check your plan for details. Dental Care Associates is happy to offer CareCredit financing as an option for their patients. For more information about sedation dentistry, you can visit their website.
