If you’re one of many people who get anxious thinking about sitting in the dentist chair, you’re not alone; fortunately, we offer safe, effective sedation dentistry to help you feel at ease. We recognize that anxious patients often put off their dental care, which can set them up for having greater dental issues than non-anxious patients. By offering sedation for our anxious Winchester, IL patients, we can ensure that our patients’ anxiety is relieved and they’re able to get the care they need. If you’ve been searching for a dentist for anxiety patients, you’ll be happy you found Renken Dentistry. With our effective sedation, caring and compassionate staff, and relaxing spa-like environment, you’ll find yourself feeling more comfortable than you ever thought possible!
If you’ve searched the internet for sedation dentistry, you’re probably aware that there are different sedation methods used by dentists. We offer nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) sedation. Nitrous oxide is an odorless, tasteless gas that is administered with oxygen through a mask placed over your nose. We prefer to use nitrous oxide because it’s extremely safe for patients of all ages and health levels, is hypoallergenic, and is extremely easy to adjust the level of sedation to fit a patients’ needs. The onset of the gas is fast, so you won’t have to feel anxious for long! Since the gas also wears off quickly, most patients can drive themselves home after the procedure, making it more convenient than other types of sedation that leave a patient feeling drowsy afterward.
Another benefit of using nitrous oxide for sedation dentistry is that you will be awake and able to communicate with your dental team the entire time. If you’re feeling pain or discomfort, or if you need your sedation level adjusted because you’re starting to feel increasingly anxious, you’ll be able to let us know! We’ll monitor you the entire time to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible. As a dentist for anxiety patients, we offer sedation for any procedure you need it for – from teeth cleanings to fillings, root canals, dental implants, and more. Whatever procedure has you feeling nervous, we’ll make sure you’ll have effective sedation so you can get the care you need.
