Oral Conscious Sedation

Based on your treatment needs and the complexity of your oral surgery, the oral surgeons at Pure Dental Spa may recommend oral sedation. The dentists will simply prescribe you medication to alleviate anxiety, insomnia, agitation, seizures, and muscle spasms. The duration of the medication will be active during the procedure with minor side effects after it wears off. Each patient is uniquely different on how he or she may react to oral sedation. The Pure Dental Spa oral surgeons will work along your side to determine which medicine is best for you.

Inhalation Conscious Sedation

Formally known as nitrous oxide and commonly known as “laughing-gas”, inhalation conscious sedation is alternative method of sedation dentistry. This method of sedation is administered through the nasal hood where patients inhale a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. Patients normally experience a tingling sensation or light headedness, and helps reduce your anxiety levels. Patients are capable of driving home without an escort, as the gas is eliminated from the body within 3 to 5 minutes. Overall the procedure is extremely safe and used on patients of all ages.

Intravenous (IV) Conscious Sedation

The oral surgeons at Pure Dental Spa may also administer Intravenous (IV) Conscious Sedation to provide you comfort and pain alleviation for complicated procedures. During this procedure, certified dental professionals will administer medication intravenously through your bloodstream. The medication normally works immediately and can be easily monitored. Patients feel little or no discomfort during the procedure. Normally, IV Conscious Sedation is used for complex and lengthy procedures and a comprehensive health check must be conducted before administered.

Before any type of sedation is administered, the Chicago and Bloomingdale oral surgeons will perform a comprehensive exam and thorough review of medical history to determine if you are a right candidate for sedation.
