When we discuss sedation dentistry with new Beverly Hills cosmetic dentistry patients, we encounter many misconceptions. The purpose of today’s Century City Aesthetic Dentistry article is to de-bunk some of the most common myths about dental sedation.
Myth #1: With Sedation Dentistry, You Are Completely Unconscious
Some nervous Beverly Hills dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry we offer different levels of dental 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 Beverly Hills 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
Beverly Hills anxiety-free dentistry is completely safe. Many nervous dentistry clients request sedation for routine oral health exams and procedures.
Myth #3: Most Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Sedation Dentistry
Some Beverly Hills dental insurers do cover sedation. Check with your insurer for details about your dental insurance benefits.
Myth #4: Sedation Dentistry Is Still Experimental
Our Beverly Hills dental office has been safely providing sedation for many years. Century City Aesthetic Dentistry meets all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Millions of Americans and thousands of Beverly Hills dental patients have safely received sedation for dental treatment.
