i am from oregon, and in all my years of being poisoned by dentists in the states, i never knew one who would give and estimate without going in. i do it all day long, have for 5 years. i recommend you go to a biologic dentist and if you need a list of sites to find one in your area, email me. email@example.com
i don't know the prices in the US, but it is generally 1/2 to 3/4 more. we do all the work in one day, but dentists in the US like to do one and two fillings at a time. find a biologic dentist who uses iv conscious sedation. do not let them put any mercury fillings in you.
"I offer conscious IV sedation,
which allows me to finish the
dental work in one appointment."
BIOLOGIC DENTISTRY AND IV SEDATION
Before Conscious IV sedation was used in Biological Dentistry, there was no other choice but to have the patient come into the office as many as 5 or 6 times for treatment.
According to Dr. Hal Huggins, a pioneer researcher of biological dentistry, IV sedation is...[a good] approach for the patient's welfare because...[it will] not interfere with the 7-14-21 day cycle of the immune system. ...this new approach...[allows] for faster recouperation, excellent detoxification,...and [is] less stressful for the patient.
IV sedation is performed by a licensed anesthesiologist (M.D.). ...we use MIDAZOLAM. The risk is minimal with heart and blood pressure being monitored throughout the procedure. ...[It] can last anywhere from 3-6 hours, depending on the amount of work required; But...to...the patient,...[it will seem like] it has only been an hour or less. The patient does not go under. They can talk, use the restroom, and interact and participate throughout the procedure. Some...patients drive home,...although...the patient [may opt to] bring a friend or spouse with them.
