When I discuss sedation dentistry with new Parkton cosmetic dentistry patients, I encounter many misconceptions. The purpose of today’s Hereford Dental Health blog is to de-bunk some of the most common myths about dental sedation.
Myth #1: With Sedation Dentistry, You Are Completely Unconscious
Some nervous Monkton dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. At Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS, we offer different levels of sedation, but none of the sedation options put you completely to sleep. With oral sedation 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: Hereford Dental Sedation Should Only Be Used For Extensive Dental Treatment
Parkton anxiety-free dentistry is completely safe. Many nervous sedation dentistry patients request sedation for routine exams and procedures.
Myth #3: Most Maryland Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Sleep Dentistry
Some Maryland dental insurers do cover sedation. Check with your insurer for details about your Maryland dental insurance benefits.
Myth #4: Monkton Sleep Dentistry Is Still Experimental
Parkton cosmetic dentists have been safely providing sedation for many years. Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS meets all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Millions of Americans and thousands of Maryland dental patients have safely received sedation for dental treatment.
