3 Myths About Sedation Dentistry

 Sleep Dentistry | Clear Lake Dental Care | Webster, TXHere at Clear Lake Dental Care, we understand that getting your teeth cleaned, having a cavity filled, or getting a root canal may not be your idea of a good time. And although we can try to do our best to make you feel calm and comfortable, for some patients the anxiety of even coming to the dentist is enough to make them want to head for the hills.

Luckily, at our office, we offer patients sedation dentistry to help them feel calm, cool and collected during their procedure. As a fun way to help you learn more about sedation dentistry, we have created a brief article debunking three of the common myths about it.

Myth #1: You’ll Be Knocked Out

Often when people hear the word “sedation,” they think that they will be completely under for a procedure. But, when it comes to sedation dentistry, we offer varying strengths to help you feel at ease. For instance, your sedation may be something as small as an oral medication to help you feel calm during your dental cleaning.

Myth #2: It’s Only for Anxious Patients

Sedation dentistry can be used for patients who are anxious or stressed about coming to the dentist. Additionally, it can also be used to help treat patients with special needs, who have a gag reflex, or for a variety of other concerns.

Myth #3: It’s Only for Big Surgeries

One of the biggest misconceptions that patients have about sedation dentistry is that dentists only use it during big surgeries. However, we can use sedation dentistry for something as small a dental cleaning in many instances.

Sedation dentistry isn’t for everyone, but it can help make your dental experience a lot more enjoyable. Are you ready to learn more about sedation dentistry? Schedule your next dental appointment at our Webster office today: 281-557-8097.
