Sedation FAQ's

Dr. Craig Janssen, a sedation dentist in Green Bay, WI, understands the dental anxiety and fear that patients may experience when contemplating a dental procedure. Patients often have many questions when considering sedation dentistry. Below are the most common sedation dentistry questions.

Regularly scheduled appointments with Dr. Janssen are essential for good dental health, which in turn affects your overall health. If you feel overly anxious or fearful about going to the dentist, sedation dentistry options can help you feel more relaxed and comfortable. Sedation dentistry can help your dental appointment become a positive experience, whether it is for a routine cleaning or a more complicated procedure.
Sedation options include nitrous oxide, the most common form of sedation dentistry, and pills taken orally before a dental appointment. The next level of sedation is intravenous (IV) sedation, followed by general anesthesia, which is rarely used.
Sedation dentistry options range in price depending on the option chosen. Intravenous and deep sedation costs more, as these options are highly specialized. Oral sedation and nitrous oxide tend to be less expensive and more commonly used. For specific information, talk with Dr. Janssen and our team to find out how much sedation dentistry costs.
While patients can fall asleep during procedures, this is not the purpose of sedation dentistry. Instead, sedation options help patients to feel calm, peaceful, and deeply relaxed. However, patients can still communicate with Dr. Janssen during the procedure.
Sedation dentistry has been used in dental offices for decades. Before administering any sedation options, Dr. Janssen and our team will take a complete medical and dental history and talk with you in depth about what type of sedation is right for you.
Overall, patients report that they remember nothing to very little of their dental appointments when sedated. Call Dr. Janssen, sedation dentist in Green Bay, WI, today to find out more about which sedation dentistry options are right for you.
