Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Affordable Pearland Dentistry SedationThere are numerous misconceptions about oral conscious sedation. Let’s set the record straight about an important dental service.

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

Some apprehensive dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. At Montz and Maher Dental Group, 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 service, 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 anxious sleep dentistry patients request sedation for routine exams and procedures.

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

Some Texas dental insurers do cover sedation. Check with your insurer for details about your Texas dental insurance benefits.

Myth #4: Sleep Dentistry Is Still Experimental

Dentists have been safely providing sedation for many years. Montz and Maher Dental Group meets all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Millions of Americans and thousands of anxious dental patients have safely received sedation for dental treatment.

Dental visits can be extremely stressful and for some Pearland residents, the fear and anxiety associated with a trip to the dentist prevent them from getting the care they need. At Montz and Maher Dental Group we provide the best oral sedation dentistry available. We will accommodate your needs with minimal, moderate, or deep sedation.
