Sedation Dentist – Evanston, IL
Stay Relaxed During Your Next Dental Visit
Some people are so nervous about going to the dentist that they would rather stay home than have a dental checkup and teeth cleaning. At Bowdental of Evanston, we help our patients take control of their anxieties, so they can get the care they need. When you call our dental office to schedule an appointment, please ask about our sedation dentistry options; our experienced sedation dentist in Evanston, IL offers both nitrous oxide and oral conscious dental sedation that can make your appointments more relaxing.
Oral Conscious Sedation
When you arrange to have oral conscious sedation performed at your next dental appointment, you will be given some medication along with some instructions. You’ll take the medication at a designated time so that by the time you’re sitting in our dental chair waiting for the treatment to begin, you’ll already be in a relaxed state of mind. Make sure you make arrangements with a trustworthy adult to drive you to and from your appointment.
Nitrous Oxide Dental
Nitrous oxide is a gaseous substance that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that is worn over your nose while we work on your teeth. It’s suitable for patients with milder dental anxieties, and the sedation level can be adjusted depending on your needs. Since the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once the mask is removed, you’ll be able to return to your regular routine without much trouble after your procedure is complete.
