Our Elmhurst dentists know that when we make dental treatment simple and enjoyable for our dental patients, we are helping them get the dental care that they need for years to come. It’s an unfortunate truth that patients who suffer from dental anxiety are prone to avoiding important dental care—and they often suffer from damaged smiles as a result.

Our office is designed to cater to these patients, and help them develop confidence in, and comfort with, dental care. We actually provide a range of relaxation treatments to help achieve this goal. Keep reading to learn more…

When you are choosing a relaxation dentistry treatment, you will want to decide whether you want to use pharmaceuticals or not.

If you are interested in using medication to achieve a deep level of sedation, you might be interested in oral conscious sedation. This relaxation treatment is so easy—all you have to do is take a pill before coming into our dental office. This pill is going to help you feel calm and happy throughout the treatment process, and the pill also provides and amnesic effect.

If, for some reason, you do not want to use a medication in order to achieve results, we do offer Dental Spa Therapy. This relaxation protocol combines different natural treatments to bring you into a light stage of sleep. Some common therapies used in Dental Spa Treatment include massage, acupressure, chiropractic adjustment, aromatherapy, sound therapy, and health-supporting supplements.

Our dental team will help you determine what type of sedation is right for you, based both on your personal preferences and the dental treatment that you will be undergoing. The good news is that we have helped numerous patients have positive dental experiences using sedation and relaxation methods!
