Hello, I am having a bit of a problem and hope somebody can offer some advice. First thing I should probably admit is I hate dentists. I have full blown panic attacks just thinking about going to the dentist. On Monday, one of my molars started crumbling. I have some jaw pain near that tooth. I have state insurance (medicaid) and do have dental coverage. I know I will require some form of sedation. I called every dentist in my area covered by insurance and none of them offer any soft of sedation (wont even write a script for one anti-anxiety med ahead of time). My husband made an appt yesterday with one of those sedation dentistry places with free consultations. After bawling my eyes out in the exam room, the dentist said I needed either a root canal or extraction but because I takeother medications for non related health issues (muscle relaxer, nerve pain med, narcotic pain medication, and sleep aid), he would not be able to give me the amount of sedation required. The dentist recommended a see an oral surgeon. I did some more research and I think I would be okay with a strong anxiety med before hand and some nitrous. \n\nWell guess what, my insurance doesnt pay for any kind of sedation. From my research online, it looks like oral sedation is around 0 and nitrous averages 0-200. I had a thought that maybe I could call my doctor and ask if he would write a script for one anti-anxiety pill (he has done is before any procedures he performs). Has anybody ever tried asking their doctor for something to easy dental problems? Would a dentist even treat me if I said I got meds from my doctor since the profit margin on oral sedatives is so high? Has anybody been in this position, not being able to find a dentist to sedate you due to other meds you take?\n\nThanks for reading and I look forward to any advice.
