Quiz: Finding The Right Dental Sedation

There’s not necessarily a right or wrong type of dental sedation for you. However, there is one that will address your preferences better than others. As a result, making a decision regarding whether you choose nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or otherwise isn’t a random choice. Instead, it’s something that requires some forethought regarding how you feel about dental care, the procedure you’ll be coming in for, and more! As for some specifics regarding how to go about this particular type of assessment and final determination, we think you’ll begin to get a feel for the process by starting off with our quiz.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: The best way to figure out which dental sedation is right for you is to do as much research outside of our practice as possible and then to tell us which one you want.
  2. True or False: If you need to be able to return to your usual activities and scheduled plans, the good news is that you may choose any of our sedation options you wish. They all wear off very quickly.
