How much does sleep dentistry cost?
The costs of being sedated at the dentist
The dentist can be a source of anxiety for many. Dental fear affects almost one in six Australian adults. Thankfully, now you can access sleep dentistry — a form of dental work which involves sedation. Only, you may now have a new fear. How much will it cost?
Sleep dentistry is surprisingly accessible and affordable. The price varies according to the type of dental work performed, the length of treatment needed, and level of sedation.
How much does sleep dentistry cost?
Sleep dentistry is an affordable option. Other clinics charge anywhere from $600 to $800. At The Point Dental, we’ll give you a transparent and honest quote before we perform any treatment so there are no nasty surprises.
Based on the prices of general anaesthesia for surgical operations, the indicative cost for sleep dentistry procedures are as follows:
- 60 minutes: $598
- 90 minutes: $705
- 120 minutes: $762
Sedation is normally covered by health insurance providers for major treatments and procedures. For smaller check-ups, sedation may be included in your general cover or Extras cover, depending on your limits. This means the gap fee could be minimal.
Are there flexible payment options?
The number one reason many people don’t take care of their teeth is, sadly, due to a lack of finances. We believe it’s vital to provide affordable health care solution, so no one feels they have to neglect their oral hygiene. That’s why we offer flexible payment plans.
Interest-free payment plan
We offer an interest-free payment option for all clients at The Point Dental. You must be:
- 18 years or older
- An Australian citizen or resident
You’ll get flexible payment terms ranging from as low as 3 months right up to 24 months, interest-free. This covers treatments for up to $30,000, and some plans don’t need an upfront deposit.
Who we partner with
We partner with a number of different insurance providers, so you can get a rebate when you attend our clinic. With many of these providers, you can claim on the spot. Some of the insurance companies we partner with include:
- Australian Unity
- Navy Health
- Defence Health
- Health Partners

Early superannuation release
Did you know you can actually access your super funds for dental procedures? Regardless of how old you are, you can get an early release of your super fund to pay for critical dental treatments. You must, however, be eligible. Your dental treatment must be deemed:
- Causing acute or chronic pain
- Reducing dignity or quality of life
You need also to be able to prove you don’t have the financial means to pay for the required treatment.
What kind of treatments can I get with sleep dentistry?
When you attend The Point Dental clinics, you can access sleep dentistry for:
- All-on-4 dental implants
- Preventative dentistry
- Root canal treatment
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Gum treatment
- Cosmetic dentistry
- Dental implants
We’ll use a general anaesthetic to sedate you so you won’t see, hear, feel or remember anything from your procedure. This is a great option if you suffer from severe dental fear, or have a bad gag reflex.
