The two most common reasons for avoiding needed dental work are cost and fear. At my Palm Harbor Fl dental office I maintain fees that are in the average range for dental services locally. As for fear, I do offer two forms of sedation. Non-IV conscious sedation involves the use of pills taken by mouth and the possible use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas), for this type of sedation I charge $122. IV conscious sedation is also used in my dental office. This is similar to what is commonly referred to as “twilight sleep”, for this I charge $333. When appropriate, either can be used for most dental procedures.
