General anesthesia (or semi-conscious sedation) and conscious sedation may be appropriate options for certain patients, especially those who are apprehensive about undergoing a dental procedure.
As part of our efforts to minimize patient discomfort and anxiety, we have engaged the services of anesthesiologists and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA), to administer general anesthesia and semi-conscious sedation to our patients.
The fees for general anesthesia and semi-conscious sedation are typically not covered by insurance. The fees are based on the duration of the dental procedure plus the pre-procedure anesthesia time and the post-procedure anesthesia recovery time. Representatives of AZ Perio will be able to answer any questions you have related to sedation dentistry. This pre-payment is based on the estimated procedure time. The final dental anesthesia fee will be based on the precise duration of anesthesia services.
