Imagine undergoing a complex dental procedure like a root canal, tooth extraction, or surgery without being sedated. Thankfully, you will never have to experience this. Nowadays, you will have no recollection of these types of procedures or the pain experienced because of sedation dentistry in West Loop.
Sedation dentistry allows your doctor to use medication to treat you in a variety of different ways without the typical pain or anxiety that many experience when visiting the dentist. It is sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry,” but patients are typically awake unless they undergo general anesthesia.
There are multiple levels of the sedation that one may receive. First, there is minimal sedation, meaning you are awake but relaxed. There is also moderate sedation, meaning you may not remember much of your procedure. Finally, there is deep sedation, where you are on the edge of consciousness, and general anesthesia, which, of course, means you are unconscious.
Inhaled minimal sedation: This involves inhaling a combination of “laughing gas” or nitrous oxide with oxygen through a mask. The gas helps you relax and tends to wear off quickly.
Oral sedation: Oral sedation involves taking a pill, usually about an hour before a procedure. This pill causes drowsiness, but you will still be awake.
IV moderate sedation: This form of sedation involves receiving the drug through a vein.
Deep sedation and general anesthesia: These types of medication make you almost unconscious or totally unconscious during your procedure.
If you’re feeling anxious about your next dental procedure, or you aren’t sure if sedation dentistry in West Loop is right for you, contact us at Pure Dental Spa for more information.
With your child back in school, you’re probably good-to-go with school supplies and clothes; however, many people don’t realize this is a great time of the year to focus on dental health. Start the school year off with dental exams in West Loop, and be sure to follow these tips.
First things first, it’s important to keep up with bi-yearly dental cleanings and exams. Be sure to ask about sealants and fluoride treatments to prevent decay and stop cavities before they form. Not only will this improve their oral health, but a beautiful smile can restore confidence, which is essential to any child’s success in school.
One of the best ways to take care of your child’s oral health is to help them make good choices about what they eat. Avoiding candies, sticky granola bars, and sodas is a good place to start. Snacks like celery sticks, carrots, and cubes of cheddar cheese are great options.
Kids need to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time and should floss every day, preferably after dinner. Research different ideas for making their routine fun, such as sticker calendars, brushing to music, and buying fun toothbrushes.
Send your child to school with a reusable water bottle. Drinking water throughout the day produces saliva, and is a great way to keep particles out of the crevices of their teeth. Pro tip: choose a fun design or add stickers to the bottle to make them excited to carry it.
