Countless patients put off visiting their dentist in Bloomingdale because they feel overstimulated, anxious, or fearful of that environment. Our team at Pure Dental Spa always prioritizes our patients’ comfort, which is why we offer several spa-like amenities and sedation dentistry. Whether you have mild or more severe dental phobia or anxiety, we offer several methods of sedation dentistry in our Bloomingdale, IL dental office that can help you have a more enjoyable experience.
Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting sedation that’s administered in our dental office, right before your procedure is about to begin. We’ll place a small nose mask on you that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. Within less than a minute, you’ll feel a calming, euphoric wave of emotion wash over you, reducing your anxiety level. After we finish, we’ll remove the mask, and within a minute or two, you’ll feel back to your normal self and be able to carry on with your day as you normally would.
Oral conscious sedation is typically recommended for patients who suffer from moderate to more severe dental phobia. Before your visit, we’ll prescribe you a single pill to take. That way, by the time you arrive to our dental office, you’ll already feel more relaxed than you typically would. Because the effects kick-in before you arrive and won’t wear off until later in the day, you’ll need to have a trusted friend or family member drop you off and pick you up from your appointment.
IV sedation will be professionally administered to you by our board-certified oral surgeon to help you feel comfortable and at-ease during more advanced and invasive procedures. We’ll place an IV into your arm to allow the medication to flow directly into your bloodstream for immediate effects. Throughout your procedure, our team will monitor your vitals and adjust the medication flow as-necessary. Because the effects can take awhile to wear off, you’ll need to have a trusted friend or family member pick you up from your visit.
For more invasive surgeries that you’ll need to be numb and unconscious to go through, we also offer general anesthesia administered by a highly trained and skilled professional. Unlike conscious forms of sedation like the ones listed above, you’ll remain unconscious while under general anesthesia, and you won’t be able to feel or sense a thing.
