Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

In this article from Vitangeli Dental in Englewood OH, we discuss sedation dentistry, and some of the most common myths about it.

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

Some 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 them put you completely to sleep. 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

Many nervous sedation dentistry patients request sedation for routine exams and procedures.

Myth #3: Most Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Sleep Dentistry

Some dental 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. Millions of Americans have safely received sedation for dental treatment.
