When I discuss sedation dentistry with new Palm Beach Gardens cosmetic dentistry patients, I encounter many misconceptions. The purpose of today’s Weinberg Dentistry dental blog article is to de-bunk some of the most common myths about dental sedation.
Myth #1: With Palm Beach Gardens Sedation Dentistry, You Are Completely Unconscious
Some nervous Palm Beach Gardens dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. At Weinberg Dentistry, 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: Dental Sedation Should Only Be Used For Extensive Dental Treatment
Palm Beach Gardens anxiety-free dentistry is completely safe. Many nervous sedation dentistry clients request sedation for routine exams and procedures.
Myth #3: Most Florida Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Palm Beach Gardens Sedation Dentistry
Some dental insurers do cover sedation. Check with your insurer for details about your Palm Beach Gardens dental insurance benefits.
Myth #4: Sedation Dentistry Is Still Experimental
Palm Beach Gardens cosmetic dentists have been safely providing conscious sedation for many years. Weinberg Dentistry meets all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Millions of Americans and thousands of Palm Beach Gardens cosmetic dental patients have safely received sedation for dental treatment.
