I’ve been hearing such great things about sedation dentistry. I hoped I could get my work done with the sedation, but I can’t find sedation dentists listed in my insurance.

Sedation isn’t a dental specialty. Any general dentist can do sedation. You can get anywhere from a lite sedation, such as nitrous oxide all the way up to the heavy sedation of I.V. sedation. You simply have to call around and ask if the dentist does sedation and what types, because each sedation dentist is different in what they offer.
As far as insurance goes, it doesn’t always cover sedation, but sometimes they will give you a small allowance for it. Make sure you find a dentist who offers high quality care and not just someone whom you can get the biggest discount with using an insurance plan. I know it may seem like you’re saving money, but poorly done dental procedures end up costing a fortune.
