Learn About Sedation Dentists - FAQs About Sedation Dentistry
Q. Will I really be totally relaxed with Sedation Dentistry?
A. Your sedation dentist will administer just enough sedation so that you'll be completely unaware of the treatment, as if you were asleep.
Q. Will I remember anything after sedation dentistry?
A. At the end of the treatment, you'll have little or no memory of what was accomplished.
Q. Will I feel any pain during dental treatment?
A. Most patients experience no discomfort whatsoever during treatment and feel surprisingly good afterwards.
Q. What dental treatments can I have while under sedation?
A. Sedation dentists can generally do it all—implants, dentures, cosmetic dentistry treatments, crowns, even gum surgery.
Q. Is sedation dentistry safe for me?
A. Oral sedation dentistry protocols have been used safely for 30 years. Sedation dentists will review your medical history and monitor you closely while under sedation.
Q. Will my dental insurance cover it?
A. Almost all sedation dentists will review your coverage and, if necessary, make financial arrangements so you get the care you need.
Don't Forget to Floss!
Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Decay-causing bacteria can hid between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles from between teeth and under the gum line.
Visit Our Office Regularly!
Take good care of your smile. Remember to visit the dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
Mouthwash Is Important, Too!
Brushing and flossing may not be enough. The ADA now recommends using an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce plaque and prevent gingivitis.
