Oral Sedation Dentistry
Dentist in Wood Dale
Depending on the amount given, oral sedation can range from minimal to moderate. For minimal sedation, you typically take a pill and it is usually taken about an hour before the procedure. The pill will make you drowsy, although you will still be awake. A larger dose may be given to produce moderate sedation.
With the many advances in dental technology, we are able to efficiently provide quality dental care to you and your family by offering sedation dentistry. In addition to eliminating pain during dental procedures, sedation dentistry works for patients with:
- High fear or very sensitive teeth
- Past traumatic dental experiences
- Difficulty getting numb
- A bad gag reflex
- Limited time to complete dental care
With sedation therapy, our dentist can treat even the most anxious patients and often accomplish dental work in one or two visits.
