At Anderson Dental, we understand that visiting the dentist is not comfortable for everyone. In fact, for many people, it's downright scary. So much so that some people avoid the dentist altogether, risking their oral health.
The good news is that there are solutions for fearful and anxious patients with sedation dentistry in Champaign, IL, that helps them get the dental treatment they need and deserve.
We offer two levels of dental sedation at Anderson Dental. The mildest is nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, delivered through a mask and is safe for most dental procedures.
Oral conscious sedation is a deeper level of relaxation we deliver with a pill taken an hour before your procedure. Due to the nature of the medication, most patients don't remember any aspects of their dental procedure even though they're conscious the entire time.
Because the medication is a deeper level of sedation than nitrous oxide, it does require you to arrange rides to and from your appointment and plan on taking the rest of the day off after your procedure to recover.
