Sedation Dentistry in Chicago, IL

visiting the dentist - oral surgeon

Your oral health has a significant impact on your life. If dental anxiety or the fear of a specific treatment interferes with your ability to take proper care of your teeth and gums, you may benefit from sedation dentistry.

Chicago Dental Arts offers oral dental sedation in Chicago, Illinois.

Dr. Vlad Fedin, our compassionate and highly skilled dentist, is committed to helping our patients meet their oral health and cosmetic dental goals calmly and comfortably.

Am I a Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

Dr. Fedin wants you to understand that dental anxiety is common and shared by almost a third of the population.

Apprehension, when faced with an upcoming dental visit, can be due to the following circumstances:

  • Dental phobia
  • Generalized anxiety
  • Low pain tolerance
  • Stress-related illnesses
  • Hypersensitive gag reflex
  • Lengthy or invasive dental procedures
  • History of resistance to local anesthesia

What Are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation is often the best way to reduce or eliminate stress and anxiety during a dental appointment. For some, it is essential to maintain their oral health.

Oral sedation dentistry offers invaluable benefits, including:

  • Anxiety relief – Conscious sedation allows you to be awake and respond to the dentist while feeling calm and relaxed.
  • Long-lasting effects – When needed, sedation allows patients to receive more invasive or lengthy dental procedures.
  • Can eliminate or reduce pain – Sedation is often needed for those who feel pain more intensely than others.
  • Calms a strong gag reflex – Sedation comforts the patient and allows the dentist to treat them.
  • Dosages are easily controlled – Dentists can adjust dosages according to the patient’s needs during treatment.
  • An alternative to local anesthesia – When local anesthesia is ineffective, sedation is often the only alternative.
  • Can be used with children as young as 12 months – Children are notoriously afraid of the dentist, and some form of sedation is often necessary.

Your Chicago Sedation Dentistry Options

Chicago Dental Arts offers oral sedation with medication.

Chicago Dental Arts ensure sedation for pain relief in Chicago, IL.

When a complex dental procedure like oral surgery, a cosmetic treatment like professional teeth whitening, a dental emergency, or even a routine cleaning and checkup, causes you anxiety or stress, sedation is an option for you.

How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?

Effects will vary depending on the type of sedation:

  • Moderate sedation (oral medication) – The patient takes an oral medication and is awake but less aware of the procedure.

Chicago Dental Arts offers sedation dentistry and anesthesia to meet the unique needs of Chicago’s diverse population.

Will Sedation Affect Recovery After Dental Procedures?

Arrangements must be made for transportation to and from your appointment involving sedation, and you should avoid driving for 12 hours.

Don’t drink alcohol or make critical decisions for 24 hours after receiving sedation.

When eating and drinking after being sedated, start with small amounts of clear liquids, like water and clear soda. To help prevent nausea and vomiting, slowly include light soups (no chowders or chili) and then bland solid foods, avoiding dairy products for the first day.

Dr. Fedin uses Waterlase® when performing dental procedures. This advanced dental technology offers comfortable treatments that can significantly reduce your healing time.

Will Sedation Affect My Dental Procedure Results?

The only part of treatment that sedation or general anesthesia may affect is when Dr. Fedin checks your dental function, as you may not be able to bite down correctly.

Dr. Fedin can control the amount of sedation so that when it’s time to check your bite, you will be clear-headed enough to respond appropriately.
