Worried About Dental Visits?

sleep dentistry St Charles IL

Millions of Americans stress out when it’s time to visit the dentist. For some, they find it simpler to skip an appointment. If this sounds like you or someone you know, then you may benefit from sedation dentistry at David Rice DDS in Elgin.

Tensing up over dental treatment is generally referred to as dental anxiety. In its most severe form, it’s called dental phobia. In each case, people would rather avoid the dentist than sit down for a checkup. This is a bad idea, since it puts their dental health at risk.

There are lots of reasons why people develop anxiety or phobia over dental care. It may stem from a bad experience they had with a dentist as a kid. Fear of pain may be involved, as well as a fear of anesthesics and possible side effects.

Whatever the cause, sedation dentistry has helped millions of people get through their appointments.

We offer three types:

  • Nitrous Oxide. You also know this as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for more than a century and is highly effective.
  • Oral conscious sedation. You take a sedative an hour or so before the appointment. You won’t sleep, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. When the appointment is over, someone will have to drive you home.
  • IV Sedation. As the name suggests, this is a sedative that is administered intravenously. You won’t sleep with this on, either, but will be in a deeply relaxed state. You’ll need an escort for a ride here and back.

A fourth option is general anesthesia, but this is often done in a hospital setting. We can advise you and offer a referral if necessary.

It is essential that you do not compromise your dental health by avoiding the dentist. Sedation dentistry from David Rice DDS in Elgin may be just what you need. Our services include complete general and family dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
