Sedation Dentistry Options:
If your child suffers from dental anxiety, our Schaumburg dental team may recommend oral sedation. This medicine will tone down activity in the parts of the brain that cause anxious or afraid feelings.
Oral sedation may be the answer to help your child with their dental fears.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Unfortunately, dental anxiety can keep many patients from visiting the dentist for checkups and much-needed dental work. If dental appointments make you anxious, our sedation dentistry team can administer nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) to help you feel more at ease during your visit.
At ABC Dentistry & Orthodontics, laughing gas is administered using a mask, allowing you to feel more at ease within minutes. If you are feeling anxious about an upcoming visit, ask about nitrous oxide. Most of our patients are good candidates for this treatment, including our pediatric dental patients!
For patients who have special healthcare needs or who experience more severe dental anxiety, our sedation dentist may recommend general anesthesia. A general anesthetic is a stronger form of sedation dentistry delivered to induce an unconscious state while treatment is performed.
This form of sedative may also be recommended for patients who are set to undergo a longer procedure or oral surgery! General anesthesia is available at Alexian Brothers Hospital and St. Alexus.
For your optimal health and safety, the skilled team at ABC Dentistry & Orthodontics will always customize and carefully control your level of anesthesia. If you’re wondering if general anesthesia is right for you, let us know — our sedation dentistry experts are happy to answer any questions you may have!
