Dental Sedation and Anesthesia Soothe Your Pain

If you’re in pain, the most important thing is to relieve it as quickly as possible. Like many dental practices, we offer both local anesthesia and sedation. But unlike some practices, we’ve done everything we can to make these pain-relieving processes as patient-friendly as possible.

To visit a dental practice where your comfort is a top priority, call our Glen Ellyn, IL dentist office at 630-448-8418.

Anesthesia Is as Pain-Free as Possible

While local anesthesia provides welcome relief from pain, many people dread it because they don’t like needles or find it otherwise unpleasant. Dr. John C. Workman uses an STA Single Tooth Anesthesia System® that eases the anesthesia process by:

  • Making it quicker
  • Regulating the flow of anesthesia with a computer so you don’t get the initial harsh “sting” that commonly occurs when anesthesia is administered
  • Avoiding repeated injections of anesthesia
  • Precisely targeting the anesthesia where you need it, so you won’t experience unpleasant residual numbness after your procedure is over

Select the Right Type of Sedation for You

Every person reacts differently to sedation; what works well for a friend or family member may not take the edge off your anxiety. While many dentists provide only one form of sedation, in our office you can choose from oral conscious sedation or IV sedation. Dr. Workman will examine you, review your history, and help you determine which method will be best for you.

Flexible Scheduling Can Help You Book an Emergency Appointment

If you experience a dental emergency, you’ll want to see Dr. Workman as soon as possible. Our office opens at 7 a.m. three days a week, so we can get you an early appointment if you wake with a toothache or other oral pain. And our team stays in the office until 7 p.m. two Mondays a month; so you won’t need to wait until the next day if a tooth is bothering you.

Don’t grin and bear your pain. Call us at 630-448-8418.
