Is Sedation Dentistry Safe For Seattle Smiles?
When I discuss sedation dentistry with new cosmetic dentistry patients, I encounter many misconceptions. The purpose of today’s Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry blog article is to de-bunk some of the most common myths about dental sedation.
Myth #1: With Sedation Dentistry, You Are Completely Unconscious
Some nervous dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. We offer different levels of sedation, but none of the sedation options put you completely to sleep. In most cases, you are relaxed but not totally knocked out. When we need to ask a dental sedation patient a question during the treatment, the patient is able to hear, understand, and respond.
Myth #2: Dental Sedation Should Only Be Used For Extensive Dental Treatment
Anxiety-free dentistry is completely safe. Many nervous sedation dentistry patients request sedation for routine exams and procedures.
Myth #3: Most WA Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Sleep Dentistry
Some WA dental insurers do cover sedation. Check with your insurer for details about your WA dental insurance benefits.
Myth #4: Sleep Dentistry Is Still Experimental
Cosmetic dentists have been safely providing sedation for many years. Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry meets all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Millions of Americans and thousands of WA dental patients have safely received sedation for dental treatment.
