Sedation is commonly used in dentistry to address extreme dental anxiety, severe gagging, or to manage medically complex patients. At Renovo Endodontic Studio, we offer various levels of sedation and anesthesia that is appropriate for each unique case.
This form of mild sedation is achieved through the use of prescriptions that are given specifically for a particular procedure. This, often times, will help the patient feel more relaxed while in the dental operating room. Although strict monitoring is done while in the office, the patient cannot travel alone and must be accompanied by an escort.
Commonly referred to as laughing gas, it is a colorless and odorless gas that is administered through a mask placed over the patient’s nose. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will still be able to hear and respond to direction that is given to you during the procedure. It is common to feel slightly light headed or tingling in the arms and legs. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable.
Although these specific services are not rendered by our team of endodontists, Renovo Endodontic Studio works closely with a renowned “dentist anesthesiologist” who is able to come to our offices to aid in patient care. If this is required, please do not hesitate to inquire with any member of the team.
Dr. Jonathan Wong and our team of endodontists at Renovo Endodontic Studio can conveniently render these services for you at our Schaumburg, Elgin, or Downers Grove location.
