Find out more about sedation dentistry and leave the worrying to us!

Most people hate the thought of going to the dentist, sometimes with good reason. Perhaps you had a bad experience at another clinic and can’t stand the sound of drilling, maybe you hate needles and get anxious about blood—in any case, nobody likes pain, and the idea of subjecting yourself to it can be incredibly stressful. 

However, regular dental visits are important as they allow your dentist to detect cavities or other oral problems that may arise in the future. Your dentist can perform necessary interventions or prescribe appropriate treatments that can save not just your teeth, but your time and money, as well. After all, a problem caught early on can be addressed immediately, saving you from spending more and having to see your dentist often. If you’re scared or worried about getting dental work done, consider sedation dentistry

Sedation dentistry is performed by a licensed provider with a special certification, utilizing options such as nitrous oxide, intravenous sedation, or oral conscious sedation. At Dentique Dental Care, we use a sedative medication in the form of a tiny pill prior to treatment. This helps patients remain calm and relaxed during dental procedures. You may feel quite groggy, but won’t feel any pain at all. Sedation dentistry is very safe, and can reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatments. Since you’re calm and comfortable, we can finish six to eight sessions’ worth of work in just one go!

We start with a consultation to determine what treatment is best suited to your needs. You should continue taking any maintenance medications, but do let us know if you’re taking any blood thinners or are allergic to any medicines. Avoid eating or drinking six hours prior to your appointment, and have a friend or family member drive you home to get some well-deserved rest after your procedure. We will let you know what to expect before, during, and after your treatment. 

Your fear of pain shouldn’t stop you from receiving the best dental care. Consider sedation dentistry now so you can relax and stay worry-free. Dr. Xhelo Shuaipaj DDS, FDOCS, FICOI, of Dentique Dental Care in Lemont and Downers Grove, IL is a licensed and certified provider of oral conscious sedation. Dr. Shuaipaj is one of a few general dentists in the area that offer sedation dentistry to patients.
