Afraid of the Dentist? Your Elgin Sedation Dentist Can Help

Afraid of the Dentist? Your Elgin Sedation Dentist Can Help If you live near Elgin and experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, sedation dentistry is for you.

Conscious sedation dentistry is available in Elgin at David Rice DDS. We have been providing sedation dentistry in Elgin for several years with excellent outcomes. Whether it is called relaxation dentistry, oral conscious sedation or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and very popular for our nervous restorative and cosmetic dentistry clients in the Elgin area.

Though it may sound impossible, with oral conscious sedation, Elgin dentistry patients can actually relax during visits to the dentist. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

Sedation dentistry is great for alleviating anxiety for our Elgin patients, and oral conscious sedation can be effective for treating or working with the following:

  • Teeth sensitivity
  • Fear of needles
  • A powerful gag reflex
  • Difficulty controlling body movement
  • Lengthy multi-procedure visits
  • Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections

If you need dental work more extensive than a filling; such as a root canal, tooth implant, or crown replacement; call David Rice DDS at 847-741-2353. When you come to our office at 1972 Larkin Ave Ste 1 in Elgin, we can give you more information about sedation dentistry.

Sedation dentistry is only one of the many services we offer at David Rice DDS- where your smile is our top priority!
