Our Orland Park dentists are here to make dental treatment as simple and stress-free as possible for all of our patients. That is why we go to great lengths to offer a number of relaxation treatments and amenities in our soothing office.
Today we are going to be talking about what types of treatments help anxious patients stay calm and comfortable during dental care.
For patients with severe dental anxiety, and patients undergoing extensive dental procedures, oral conscious sedation can be very beneficial. This treatment protocol involves a patient taking a sedative in the form of a pill. Once the medicine takes effect, the patient feels calm and relaxed, and, although the patient will remain conscious while in the dentist’s chair, he or she will likely not remember any of treatment after the appointment.
Our dental team uses the anesthetic wand to comfortably administer localized anesthesia. The anesthetic wand controls the rate and pressure at which anesthesia is inserted into the patient’s tissues. The computer-controlled flow rate is calibrated to be below the patient’s pain threshold.
Our office is designed to help patients feel comfortable and supported. During your appointment you can watch T.V., listen to music, or watch a DVD. You can further relax in our soothing massage chairs, with a comfortable blanket and neck pillow. We put your comfort first, so that you can get the treatment that you need in a soothing environment.
Our dental team will help you determine what treatments/combination of treatments and amenities are right for your specific situation. To get started, you can always call our Orland Park dental team, or use the Contact Us page on our website. We look forward to working with you!
