We understand that dental anxiety is common, which is why we offer safe, effective, and hypoallergenic sedation dentistry for our nervous Morrisonville, IL patients. We use only nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) because it provides the best sedation for patients of all ages and health statuses. If you’ve been looking for a dentist for nervous patients, you’ll be happy you chose Renken Dentistry. Our kind and compassionate staff and dentists are understanding and will always prioritize your comfort while ensuring you receive the best possible care.
There are now several types of sedation that are commonly used in dentistry today. We prefer nitrous oxide for sedation dentistry because it’s easy to adjust to meet each patient’s needs. Nitrous oxide is a clear, odorless, and tasteless gas that is inhaled to induce sedation. The onset of sedation is very fast and doesn’t require any injections of any kind; likewise, the effects of the gas wear off quickly, so most patients have no problem driving themselves home after their procedure. Since the gas has a quick onset and also wears off quickly, we can easily increase or decrease sedation levels to fit your needs. It’s also conscious sedation, meaning you’ll be able to feel relaxed but will still be able to fully communicate with your dental team the entire time.
Many patients who suffer from dental anxiety tend to put off dental care until they have an issue that can’t be ignored, such as a broken or cracked tooth. We’re proud to offer effective sedation dentistry that’s safe for all ages so our patients never have to feel wary and delay care. Whether you suffer from extreme anxiety and need sedation to be able to handle exams and teeth cleanings, or you’re just worried about an upcoming procedure like tooth extraction, root canal, crown, dental implant or a dental bone grafting, we’ll make sure you’re at ease. Between our friendly caring staff, and soothing, spa-like office, you’ll have no trouble feeling comfortable at our Morrisonville, IL office.
