What is Sedation Dentistry?
Oral Conscious Sedation – is a very effective method of sedation dentistry we use in our Chicago and Barrington, IL, office. It involves taking a medication, such as Valium, prior to your appointment. While you’ll be fully conscious and able to talk, you will be in a highly relaxed state, and your appointment will often feel like it is over in a matter of minutes.
IV Sedation – is available if you have an anxiety level beyond what you feel you can control through behavioral modification or medication. During your appointment, a licensed and skilled anesthesiologist will administer a sedative that will put you to sleep. The anesthesiologist will monitor you throughout your appointment, while Dr. Jackson focuses on your dental work. You really can wake up to a new smile!
