Going to the dentist is an intimidating task to many people, but at our dentist in the West Loop and in Bloomingdale, sedation dentistry eliminates anxiety and fear. We offer three different levels of sedation to accommodate patients with a variety of needs. Visiting the dentist shouldn’t be scary, and with our spa-like services, our goal is to make you forget you’re at the dentist.
Oral-Conscious Sedation
This level of sedation is perfect for patients who want to feel more relaxed during their time in the dental chair. The medication will be active during the procedure and, as it wears off, there are only mild side effects. Keep in mind that all patients react differently to oral-conscious sedation, but our team of experts will ensure you are comfortable throughout your reservation.
Inhalation-Conscious Sedation
Stronger than oral-conscious sedation but not as strong as intravenous-conscious sedation, inhalation-conscious sedation is often referred to as “laughing gas.” This is administered through the nasal hood and it is composed of both nitrous oxide and oxygen. After their reservation, patients are usually able to drive home on their own.
Intravenous-Conscious Sedation
For maximum comfort during more complicated procedures, our dentists in West Loop and Bloomingdale may suggest intravenous-conscious sedation. Medication will be administered intravenously through your bloodstream to ensure you feel as little discomfort as possible.
Between our sedation dentistry services and our spa-like experience, Pure Dental Spa is changing what it means to visit the dentist. Do you want to see just how enjoyable going to the dentist can be? Simply call us today to schedule an appointment with our dentist in West Loop or Bloomindale!

Orthodontia Services for All

Getting straight teeth is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Maybe braces are the best option for you, but you don’t get them on until you’re an adult. Or maybe, you’re a teenager who wants to opt for Invisalign for a more discrete way to straighten your teeth. No matter the path you take, achieving a confident, healthy smile is always worth it! Here are some of the orthodontic services our dentists in the Chicago Loop and Bloomingdale areas have to offer.
Invisalign
In as little as six to 18 months, you can have straight teeth thanks to Invisalign. This series of clear, plastic retainers help guide your teeth into the proper position. Simply pop the retainers out while you are eating but wear them at all other times to ensure they are doing their job. Cleaning them is an important facet of having Invisalign, so make sure to take the time to gently brush them and soak them on a regular basis. Invisalign isn’t for everyone, so our dentists will work with you to see if you are a good candidate.
Traditional Braces
Dating as far back as ancient man, braces have long been used to straighten teeth. Braces apply gentle pressure to your teeth through a series of wires and brackets. You may choose from plastic or ceramic brackets, and lingual braces are placed on the back of teeth and are an option for those who want their braces to be less noticeable.
If you want straight teeth, you’re only a phone call away! Contact Pure Dental Spa to set up a reservation with our professionals at either our dental office in the Chicago Loop or Bloomingdale areas.
