Our Orland Park Dentist Helps You Determine Whether Sedation Can Help You

Written by Dr. Zaibak on Oct 18, 2016

Sedation treatments have helped thousands of people get the dental care they need. With all of the sedation treatments available today, you have more options than ever before. But how do you know if sedation is right for you? Our Orland Park dentists are here to help.

Sedation is suitable and helpful for many types of dental patients:

If you suffer from dentistry-related fear or anxiety, sedation may help you get the treatment you need in a calm and stress-free manner. Oral conscious sedation—which involves the patient taking a small sedative pill about an hour before treatment—allows the patient to feel calm and worry-free before they even step foot in our office.

Sedation can also be life-changing for people with sensitive teeth and gums, who are prone to experiencing pain during dental care. The level and type of sedation used will depend on the patient’s level of discomfort, and the treatments he or she is undergoing. Our dentists are here to help you make the best decisions for your situation.

Another situation in which sedation can be helpful is when a dental patient is undergoing multi-phased or comprehensive dental care. Because sedation keeps the patient calm, the patient does not get fatigued as quickly during treatment. This means that our dental team can complete more treatments in one session than we could if the person was not sedated. Sedation treatment can improve your experience in the dentist’s chair, and improve the efficiency of treatment.

If it seems like any of these categories apply to you, then you may be a good candidate for sedation treatment. Our Tinley Park sedation dentists are here to explain the various treatment options, and help you weigh the pros and cons of each.
