WHAT IS SEDATION DENTISTRY?

Dentist Westmont

Sedation dentistry is the practice of using sedatives (like laughing gas) to help patients relax during dental appointments. Dr. Sana Ahmed and Dr. Juned Mohammed offer nitrous oxide to those suffering from dental fear, dental anxiety, a severe gag reflex, and other conditions that can make dental appointments more challenging. Our goal is to reduce your anxiety and provide a comfortable visit you can look forward to. So, if you are stressed about your next Westmont, IL, dental appointment, speak to our team about sedation dentistry services by calling (630) 812-7755 or messaging Evolve Dentistry online.

DID YOU KNOW THAT LAUGHING GAS GETS ITS NICKNAME FROM ITS EUPHORIC EFFECTS?

Dentist Westmont

When inhaled, nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) suppresses the central nervous system and slows the brain and bodily responses. Laughing gas triggers feelings of relaxation, happiness, and (sometimes) fits of giggles.

HOW IT WORKS

Our Westmont nitrous oxide dentists carefully administer this mild form of sedation dentistry for patients that need it:

BEFORE

Before offering dental sedation, Dr. Ahmed and Dr. Mohammed ensure that nitrous oxide would benefit your dental appointment. That said, nitrous oxide is an excellent option for most patients but should not be administered to patients with severe psychiatric disorders. It can cause dreaming and hallucinations if not administered properly.

DURING

Before treatment, Dr. Ahmed or Dr. Mohammed will administer laughing gas through a mask placed on the face. Then, the patient will breathe in the nitrous oxide to feel more comfortable.

AFTER

After treatment, we slowly administer oxygen to help the body safely return to normal. Since the effects of laughing gas are fleeting, you should be able to drive home and return to daily activities after your dentist appointment.

WHAT ISSUES CAN SEDATION DENTISTRY SOLVE?

Nitrous oxide is the mildest, easiest-to-administer version of sedation dentistry. This type of sedation is ideal for those who suffer from fear or anxiety towards the dentist and needles or injections. Plus, laughing gas can help those with severe gag reflexes, trouble sitting still, and other bodily control problem
