Is Dental Anesthesia Safe?

Affordable White Plains Dentistry Sedation

The purpose of this article from The Dental Design Center in White Plains NY is to debunk some of the most common myths about dental anesthesia and patient comfort.

Myth #1: With Anesthesia, You Are Completely Unconscious

Some dental patients are not only afraid of receiving treatment; they also fear the thought of not being in control. We offer different levels of numbing and sedation, but none of the options put you completely to sleep.

Myth #2: Anesthesia Should Only Be Used For Extensive Dental Treatment

Anesthetic dentistry is completely safe, and many patients request it for something as simple as a routine exam.

Myth #3: Most Dental Insurance Companies Do Not Cover Anesthesia

Some insurers do cover anesthesia and sedation! Check with your provider for details about your benefits.

Myth #4: Anesthesia and Sedation Are Still Experimental

Dentists have been safely providing anesthetic sedation for many years. We meet all the requirements advised by the American Dental Association. Anesthesia from The Dental Design Center in White Plains NY is a boon to people with dental anxiety. People from Scarsdale, Westchester County, and New Castle have benefitted from it.
