An estimated 42% of Americans don't visit the dentist has often as they should and 22% avoid the dentist because of fear or anxiety. This fear or anxiety can often be caused by prior negative experiences at the dentist, embarrassment of current oral health, feeling of helplessness, or fear of experiencing pain during a dental procedure. Avoiding the dentist because of fear and anxiety can lead to the exacerbation of dental conditions such as gum disease and tooth decay.
IV Sedation Relieves Dental Anxiety
At Gallery Park Dental we are proud to offer our patients IV sedation to comfortably complete any dental procedures. IV sedation safely administers medicine through small IV placed in your arm and instantly reduces fear and anxiety. Sedated patients can complete needed dental treatment while completely relaxed and have little to no memory of the procedure afterward!
Is IV Sedation Safe?
Drs. Rogers and Gripentrog have completed rigorous training in the use of IV sedation at Illinois Masonic Medical Center in downtown Chicago. They are two of very few general dentists in the Chicagoland area who are licensed by the state of Illinois to safely provide IV sedation to patients. Most patients can safely undergo dental procedures with the use of IV sedation.
Do not avoid dental care because of fear and anxiety any longer! Call Gallery Park Dental to inquire about the use of IV sedation today!
