Dental Sedation Patient


The most common reasons for skipping dental visits are cost and dental anxiety.

Let’s focus on cost first. Yes dentistry is a cost people rarely budget for. Maintaining a health mouth with routine cleanings and check-ups is less than a couple hundred dollars a year. The financial consequences of avoiding the dentist are staggering. Fillings, root canals, teeth extraction and dental implants are much more expensive then routine care. Regular cleanings and dental check-ups will detect problems early. Small problems are easy to correct.

Next, let’s look at the cost of dental care. A healthy mouth is less than a couple of hundred dollars a year. Usually insurance covers this cost. However, if you do not maintain good oral hygiene and avoid biannually visits, the cost jumps. Root canals, tooth replacements and oral surgery cost far more than years of dental care. Regular cleanings and examinations detect diseases in their early stages. When you feel discomfort, the problem may require drastic and expensive procedures. Sometimes the removal of teeth is necessary.






If going to the dentist makes you nervous, you are not alone. Anxiety prevents many people from visiting their family dentist and receiving the care they require. Sedation dentistry is a safe technique to relieve anxiety and anxiousness while also increasing comfort, allowing you to rest throughout any cosmetic dental operation.

Laughter Gas

Sedation with Pills

Dr Nugent will provide you a prescription for an oral conscious sedation medicine that is simple to take, safe, and inexpensive. You will take the pill at the office when Dr. Nugent tells you. You will be able to communicate and respond to requests once the oral conscious sedation drug takes action. However, most patients will not remember the appointment. Patients undergoing oral conscious sedation arrange for a friend or family member to drive them to and from their appointments.

Sedation via IV
For more longer treatments, some patients prefer IV sedation to be delivered.
