Going to the dentist can be stressful. At McGonigle Dental Associates we aim to make our patients’ experience as peaceful and painless as possible.
For that reason, we offer conscious IV Tinley Park Sedation Dentistry to our patients who are desperately afraid of going to the dentist, getting a wisdom tooth pulled, or a root canal. Instead of giving up on your oral health, maybe it’s time to consider IV sedation.
Also known as “Sleep Dentistry” or “Twilight Dentistry”, this treatment is the industry-leading solution for helping control pain and anxiety associated with dental procedures.
Essentially it is an umbrella term for a variety of procedures, both traditional and cosmetic, which are done while the patient is fully sedated. Patients wake up after their procedure feeling rested and without any of the anxiety they might usually associate with undergoing dental surgery.
For some, the idea of being fully sedated may be anxiety-inducing on its own. As your best Tinley Park Dentists we are proud to be one of the few dental practices offering Conscious IV Tinley Park Sedation Dentistry. During this process, the doctor uses an IV sedative to relax the patient to a state best described as drowsy. The doctor can moderate the amount of medication, making this process very safe and effective. Some patients may fall asleep with conscious IV sedation, but a gentle nudge is enough to wake them.
“My family have been patients of Dr. Rob's for close to 20 years. The offices is impeccably clean. Beautiful, welcoming waiting room. The staff are very friendly, yet professional. Dr. Rob is very good. Overall, a very nice experience.”
Sedation dentistry is a specialty procedure for a specific type of patient. Some patients are overcome by their inhibitions about dental procedures. Perhaps they experienced a traumatic event relating to their teeth or it’s merely a phobia. In any case, for patients who experience this level of stress around dentistry, treatment may feel impossible.
If you’re someone who has avoided seeking needed dental treatment due to anxiety about the procedures, please know that there is an option for you. We at McGonigle Dental Associates know that any medical procedure can be anxiety-inducing and we are sensitive to the fact that some patients have more trepidation about dental surgery than most. We want to be the dentists who change that for you by offering you a route to a new smile that involves none of the pain or fear you normally associate with dentistry. We want to provide you with the ultimate comfort zone to alleviate your pain. There is hope. We’re here to take care of you.
IV sedation is commonly employed in wisdom tooth extraction.
