Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Affordable Decatur Dentistry

The purpose of this article from Canyon Rim Dental in Mesa AZ is to debunk some of the most common myths about sedation dentistry.

Myth #1: With Sedation Dentistry, You Are Completely Unconscious

Some 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.

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 Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Sleep Dentistry

Some insurers do cover sedation. Check with your provider for details about your benefits.

Myth #4: Sleep Dentistry Is Still Experimental

Dentists have been safely providing sedation for many years. We meet all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association.

We offer oral conscious sedation. You take a prescribed sedative before your appointment. It makes you sleepy, but you won’t be fully unconscious. You will most likely need someone to drive you to and from our office.
