Drug Interactions and Insurance

What about drug interactions?

Sedation medications are chosen based on an individual’s medical history and any possible drug interactions that may occur.

Dr. Huang uses sophisticated drug interaction software that automatically checks all medications the patient is taking, even herbals and nutritional supplements, against a predetermined list of suggested sedative drugs.

In addition, Dr. Huang will normally contact your primary care physician prior to doing sedation and discuss any possible concerns.

Will insurance pay for OCS?

Unfortunately, insurance companies do not pay for sedation. However, for many fearful patients, this is the only alternative to losing all their teeth.
