If visiting the dentist makes you anxious, it may be time to consider sedation dentistry in the Grandview, IL area. Renken Dentistry is located in nearby Springfield, IL and our dentists offer several options for reducing anxiety and helping nervous patients cope with receiving the basic and advanced dental care they need to maintain healthy teeth and gums. If you’ve been looking for dentists that put you to sleep near me, you’ve come to the right place.
Sometimes patients develop an excessively anxious response when it comes to going to the dentist. It’s not uncommon at all – many people experience some level of nervousness when they need their bi-annual dental cleaning. While most of us can overcome this nervousness and go to our appointment anyway, some people find it nearly impossible to make it to their appointments without some help and encouragement. Our staff is full of highly compassionate and kind people so that you feel comfortable the moment you walk through the door, but we know that when you’re actually in the chair, you may need something else to help you overcome your anxiety.
You won’t find many dentists that put you to sleep completely, but in our office we use nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” to help our patients relax and feel more at ease. We administer the gas through a mask that’s placed over the nose while we work in the mouth. You won’t be completely unconscious, but you’ll be comfortable, and we can adjust the depth of the sedation as needed. Sedation dentistry is available to all our Grandview area patients if they need it and requires no injection, so patients with needle phobias need not worry.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible so that we can make sure you get the best care. Maintaining good dental hygiene is important for your overall health no matter what, so we’re happy to accommodate your needs as long as it means we can take good care of you. Come see us about sedation dentistry at our Springfield office near Grandview. You can call 217-483-7177 to set up an appointment. We can’t wait to meet you!
