What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves using sedative methods and medications to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during your dental treatment. If you suffer from dental phobias or anxiety, sedation dentistry might be just what you need to feel calm and at ease. Our dentists and dental team are trained in sedation dentistry, and we are committed to ensuring that you are safe and comfortable throughout your time with us.

What forms of sedation are available?

We are pleased to provide two forms of sedation dentistry in Chicago, Illinois.

  • Nitrous oxide sedation – Nitrous oxide (also called laughing gas) is a gas that you inhale during your treatment. We will place a small mask over your nose, and you simply need to breathe as normal. Nitrous oxide can help you feel very relaxed during your treatment. Because this is a mild form of sedation, it wears off quickly, and you will be able to safely drive yourself home after your appointment.
