There are numerous misconceptions about sleep dentistry. Let’s set the record straight about an important dental service.
Myth #1: With Sedation Dentistry, You Are Completely Unconscious
Some anxious dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. At The Yuma Dentist, 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 procedure, 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 uneasy conscious sedation patients request sedation for routine exams and procedures.
Myth #3: Most Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Sleep Dentistry
Some AZ dental insurers do cover sedation. Check with your insurer for details about your AZ dental insurance benefits.
Myth #4: Sleep Dentistry Is Still Experimental
Dentists have been safely providing sedation for many years. The Yuma Dentist meets all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Millions of Americans and thousands of uneasy dental patients have safely received sedation for dental treatment.
Dental visits can be extremely stressful and for some Yuma residents, the fear and anxiety associated with a trip to the dentist prevent them from getting the care they need. At The Yuma Dentist, we provide the best oral sedation dentistry available. We will accommodate your needs with minimal, moderate, or deep sedation.
