Sedation Options to Fit Your Life

Our Elmhurst dental office offers a number of different sedation treatments to fit your life and your dental procedure. Depending on your needs you may benefit from…

  • Our Thoughtfully Designed Soothing Office—during treatment our patients relax with calming music, cozy blankets, and compassionate staff.
  • Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)—this safe and effective sedation option helps patients feel relaxed during treatment. If you choose nitrous oxide, you’ll simply breath through a mask until you reach an appropriate level of sedation. The effects of laughing gas are reversed in about 5 minutes post-treatment. 
  • Oral Conscious Sedation—this sedation option provides a deeper level of sedation than nitrous oxide. If you choose oral sedation, you’ll take a pill about an hour before your appointment. This medication—Triazolam—will make you feel calm and drowsy (so you’ll need a ride to and from your appointment). You will not feel pain during treatment, and you probably won't remember much of your appointment once you’re home.

Our Elmhurst dentists will help you determine what kind of sedation is appropriate for you. We’ll walk you through the treatment process to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident every step of the way.

State-of-the-Art Technology

We utilize the latest technology to ensure that your sedation treatments are comfortable and safe. From start to finish you’ll benefit from the best sedation treatment available.

  • Discover the Difference of Syrijet
    Using revolutionary Syrijet needle-free technology, we administer local anesthesia through a concentrated burst of air. Syrijet is ideal for both children and adults—especially those patients who suffer from needle anxiety.
  • Oral Sedation Safety Measures
    When you choose oral sedation, you’ll be monitored throughout treatment by our sedation dental team. We use a computerized pulse oximeter to continually measure your heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels

We use innovative dental technology to ensure that you receive the highest quality dental care available.
