At Renken Dentistry, we understand that many patients feel nervous about dental care, which is why we’re proud to offer safe, effective, sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows you to feel comfortable and relaxed while getting the care you need. We use only nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. This odorless, colorless gas is hypoallergenic can be used on Rochester, IL patients of all ages.

No matter how long it’s been since your last visit, we can help you have a healthy, happy smile!
We use nitrous oxide because it’s extremely safe and has proven efficacy. It’s actually been used in dentistry for over 100 years to reduce anxiety. While there are several types of sedation dentistry available, nitrous oxide provides several benefits. The onset of the gas is very quick, so you’ll start to feel relaxed within a couple of minutes of it being administered. This also means it’s very easy for us to quickly adjust your level of sedation to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible. You’ll be conscious and able to communicate with us for the entire procedure. The gas also wears off very quickly so many patients are able to drive themselves home after their visit.
We offer nitrous oxide for any procedure that has your feeling nervous, so whether you need a filling or a dental implant, you’ll be comfortable and relaxed for the procedure. Nitrous oxide is delivered through a small mask you wear over your nose, so there are no needles involved. Your dentist will ask you to breathe normally, and within minutes you’ll begin to feel calm and relaxed.
