To sedate or not to sedate that is the question

Confession time once again.

I haven’t been the to the dentist is 3 years  *gasp* and I am positive I have cavities galore among other mouth nasties. So I decided to research what sedation dentistry is all about.

In a nut shell the dental people give you a little white pill which is nothing like the blue or red pill in the matrix, so no need to fret about waking up in an alternate universe. This little white pill is the magically pill that will put all your dentist anxiety’s to sleep. According to the information I did find the little white pill does not actually knock you out completely,  it more or less relaxes you to a point where you start to see rainbows and unicorns. Basically you could be loosing a limb and you wouldn’t  give a rat’s patootie. Not that loosing a limb is a good thing but you know what I mean.

The cost for sedation dentistry is $250 for the consultation and then of course the cost of what ever procedure or procedures in my case need to be done. Thank god for benefits.   It seems that if you sedate you can get all your dentistry needs over and done with within 1 or  2 visit rather than 3 or 4 with a regular dentist. Hmmmmmmm???

My choices are:

1. Take the little white pill and hope that Laurence Fishburne is not there when the happy pill wears off

2. Make multiple visit to my regular dentist and pee myself as I sit in the waiting room while the anxiety eats away at the lining of my stomach

Feed back is welcome for those of you who read my blog. I am leaning towards sedating as I would like to get this over and done with once and for all. And I  promise to make regular visit to my dentist so that I do not find myself in this predicament again as it is no fun. :0(

Cheers ..*

  1. I say go to the dentist while you stil have coverage from your workplace.

    Other than that I say Ninja strikes again!
