When I discuss sedation dentistry with new Boulder cosmetic dentistry patients, I encounter many misconceptions. The purpose of today’s Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry dentistry article is to de-bunk some of the most common myths about dental sedation.
Myth #1: With Boulder Sedation Dentistry, You Are Completely Unconscious
Some nervous Boulder dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General 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 Boulder dental sedation patient a question during the treatment, the patient is able to hear, understand, and respond.
Myth #2: Boulder Dental Sedation Should Only Be Used For Extensive Dental Treatment
Boulder anxiety-free dentistry is completely safe. Many nervous Boulder sedation dentistry clients request sedation for routine exams and procedures.
Myth #3: Most Colorado Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Boulder Sedation Dentistry
Some Boulder dental insurers do cover dental sedation. Check with your insurer for details about your Colorado dental insurance benefits.
Myth #4: Boulder Sedation Dentistry Is Still Experimental
Boulder cosmetic dentists have been safely providing sedation for many years. Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry meets all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Millions of Americans and thousands of Colorado dental patients have safely received sedation for dental treatment.
