Some people are terrified of the dentist, but sedation dentistry for Springfield IL patients means that no one has to forgo professional dental care. Renken Dentistry offers sedation for dental work that allows patients to receive the vital health care they need while remaining comfortable. We provide level 1, nitrous and oral sedation, commonly referred to as laughing gas.
How does this affect patients?
Laughing gas is administered by a sedation dentist by fitting a mask over the patient’s nose. Oxygen and nitrous gas will be given to the patient throughout the course of treatment, with the dentist continuously checking in to ensure the patient is comfortable. There are many benefits of this type of sedation dentistry for Springfield IL residents, including:
- There are no needles
- Simple and fast to administer
- Quickly takes effect and quickly wears off
- Patients are fully conscious, yet comfortable, during the procedure
- Even though they are conscious, patients will likely have little to no memory of treatment
- Patients can drive themselves home afterward
Dentists have used nitrous oxide as sedation for dental work for years. It has proven safe for all ages and offers patients that are scared of the dentist a way to receive critical dental care while remaining comfortable. Our staff will do everything possible to ensure you are at ease before, during, and after your treatment. This can be used for a variety of treatments, including cleanings, cavity fillings, gum disease treatment, root canals, and more. Once the treatment is complete, the dentist will remove the mask. The effects of the laughing gas will quickly wear off, without leaving you groggy. You’ll get to go home and enjoy the effects of good oral care.
We want all our patients to have a happy and healthy smile! That’s why we offer sedation dentistry in Springfield IL – to bring quality dental care to everyone, even those who have extreme anxiety or are scared of the dentist.
