Have you ever avoided or delayed a dentist visit because of fear? If so, you’re not alone. Stress and fear are listed as one of the main reasons people don’t get the dental care they need. But with a qualified sedation dentist like Dr. Harris using new technologies and sedation dentistry practices, high quality dental care doesn’t have to be a high stress event. Let’s face it. For most people the thought of dental work ranks with filing taxes as something to be minimized, endured or even downright avoided if possible. But the truth is, good preventive and restorative dental treatment now very often means better health, less extensive treatment and less cost as our teeth age with us.
Utilizing Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, or CRNAs, means that your sedation is both administered and monitored by a highly educated professional, making your sedation dentistry experience as safe and smooth as possible. That means Dr. Harris can devote his full attention to making your smile beautiful.
Furthermore, CRNAs can use techniques and medications that will take effect quickly and reduce that “hang-over effect” or grogginess that people may experience with other sedation methods. That means you can have your dental work completed, but not spend an entire day recovering from medications that may take awhile to wear off.
Finally, Greenville Family Dentistry is fully aware that a patient’s time is vitally important. With CRNAs, Dr. Harris is able to complete more of your dental treatment plan in any single appointment, protecting your valuable time.
“Anyone who is apprehensive about going to the Dentist needs to make an appointment with Dr. Harris. The friendliest staff in town made me feel comfortable and welcome. Their use of modern technology combined with a non-judgemental, patient-first attitude made my visit a stress free experience.”
So, let’s address your concerns… How much does all this cost? The simple answer? The same as Dr. Harris doing the sedation dentistry without the addition of CRNAs. Cost can be one of the biggest obstacles about dental treatment and Greenville Family Dentistry will always keep the costs as reasonable as possible. The actual dollar amount for the sedation will depend on how long your dental treatment may take. The good news is that some insurances will cover a portion of the anesthesia, and we will always look into potential coverage for you. Even better, your anesthesia consultation is complimentary. We will be happy to review your medical history with you and tell you how we may can help.
