When most patients think of sedation and relaxation dentistry, they think about how these treatments can help them while they are in the dentist’s chair. Sedation dentistry treatments are no doubt invaluable for patients while undergoing treatment, but did you know that these treatments can also improve your experience pre and post treatment?

Our Elmhurst dentist office has put together this explanation of how relaxation dentistry will improve your patient experience. We hope that this blog helps you better understand the benefits of these revolutionary treatments—read on to learn more!

Before Treatment

If you get nervous about dental treatment, and if you are worried that you won’t even be able to make it to your appointment, relaxation dentistry can help you! Oral conscious sedation allows patients to feel calm and comfortable before they even get to our office. In order to reap the benefits all you need to do is take the small pill our dentist prescribes you at home about an hour before your appointment.

During treatment

While you are in the dentist’s chair there are a number of relaxation and sedation dentistry treatments that we can use to keep you comfortable and anxiety-free. Our dentist will help you decide what type of sedation is appropriate for your procedure—so make sure to ask us about your options during your first consultation!

After Treatment

Few patients realize that by using relaxation dentistry during treatment, they can actually improve their post-treatment experience. Sedation dentistry prevents you from straining and attempting to fight dental treatment. Consequently, your body is better rested and able to heal once you get home.
