In addition to helping patients with dental anxiety and fear, sedation dentistry can also assist those who suffer from gag reflux, have difficulty sitting still, or patients who may need extensive dental treatment. No matter the need, our team is here to provide both oral and inhalation dental sedation in Crown Point for a safe and relaxing visit.
If inhalation sedation isn't for you, our office also provides oral sedation. Oral sedation is taken in pill form the night before and an hour before your appointment, with sedative effects lasting anywhere from 2-6 hours, allowing us to achieve necessary procedures while you are in a sleepy and relaxed state. Along with providing calming experiences, oral sedation also produces a minor state of amnesia for patients and many have little-to-no recollection of the actual appointment, though they are able to respond to commands during the procedure.
Our team will be able to determine your candidacy for sedation dentistry at your consultation, along with providing you with all the information you need to feel confident in your sedation choice and undergoing treatment with the team at Smiles on Randolph. To help increase your comfort, a member of our team will always be with you, and we also offer pillows, blankets, and music to help you relax.
