Take The Stress Out Of Dental Care With Help From Our Elmhurst Sedation Dentists

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Nov 14, 2017

If stress and anxiety is keeping you from getting the dental care that you need, our Elmhurst sedation dentists are here to help. We know that, for many people, dental anxiety can seem insurmountable, but we promise it’s not!

There are a number of anxiety-reducing measures available to you. When you meet with our dental team, we’ll be able to help you figure out what type of relaxation measures are right for you. We’ll take into account your dental fears and anxiety, your health history, and the treatments you’re undergoing.

Oral conscious sedation is only increasing in popularity among dental patients of all kinds. In order to benefit from oral conscious sedation, you’ll simply take a small dentist-prescribed pill about an hour before your appointment is scheduled to begin. This pill will help you feel relaxed and confident before the treatment process begins.

Once your appointment is over, the effects of oral conscious sedation will naturally wear off. However, because oral conscious sedation has amnesic effects, you likely won’t remember any of the treatment process once you’re back home. For many patients, this is an additional advantage of using oral conscious sedation.

Our practice also offers Dental Spa Therapy, which is natural and completely drug-free. This relaxation protocol combines all-natural measures like massage, acupressure, and chiropractic care. Our treatment space is also thoughtfully designed to work with Dental Spa Therapy with soothing lightning, music therapy, and aromatherapy.

Dental Spa Therapy is shown to have additional effects such as lowering blood pressure and supporting your body’s natural healing ability.

Because we offer a range of sedation treatment options, we can help you find the perfect relaxation solution for your specific solution. Even if it has been years since you’ve been in to see your dentist, our dental team is here to help you. Give our Elmhurst sedation dentists a call to learn more about your treatment options and to schedule a personal consultation.
