Do you experience dental anxiety? If you are one of the millions of Americans who avoids dental appointments due to fear or anxiety, visit the office of Dr. Paul Denemark, a board certified periodontist. Dr. Denemark and his staff of professionals understand that not every patient is comfortable in the dental chair and offer sedation dental care to relieve your anxiety.

What is Sedation Dental Care?

Sedation dental care affords you the opportunity to relax under minimal, moderate, or deep sedation when undergoing dental procedures. With minimal sedation, you will be able to respond verbally and physically at all times and will remember the procedure. Moderate sedation provides even greater relaxation but limits your responsiveness and memory of the procedure. Deep sedation is for patients who experience terror at the thought of dental work, as it renders you unable to respond to any stimulus and unable to recall anything about the visit.

Types of Sedation Dental Care

Local Anesthetic

This method is the familiar injection utilized to numb small areas of the mouth and is often used in conjunction with laughing gas. The effects wear off after a few hours.

Laughing Gas

Laughing gas is commonly used in sedation dental care. Within five minutes of inhalation, patients feel euphoric and relaxed. An advantage of this sedation method is that the effects clear up as soon as the patient stops inhaling the gas.

Oral Sedation

If you opt for oral sedation dental care, Dr. Denemark will provide a sedative pill for you to take an hour before your procedure. The sedative will relax you and lessen your anxiety; however, you will need a friend or family member to drive you home.

Intravenous (IV) Sedation

This is the strongest tool in sedation dental care. With this method, sedatives are administered intravenously by Dr. Denemark, who is trained and certified to provide this service. Your vital signs are monitored during the procedure, and when you awaken, you will not remember the work performed.

If you would like to use sedation dental care for your next procedure with a periodontist, contact our office at (630) 318-0988 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"I had heard about Dr. Denemark and Denemark Periodontal for years. Good thing, because I finally have needed their services a couple times in the past year. Everyone in the office is friendly and wants to make sure that what needs to be fixed gets taken care of in the most professional way. Not to mention the beautiful office and the state of the art equipment and technology make it my choice and I refer anyone who needs dental help to visit Dr. Denemark. His concern for your health and his approach to fixing the issue that is best for you makes Denemark the only choice in the Chicagoland Area."

"Dr. Denemark has done several implants on me and I'm really happy not only with the results, which are so perfect, as with the way the procedure was handled. I also had bone and gum grafting done with him and had excellent results. If I ever need an implant or grafting again Dr. Denemark is for sure the doctor I'll have them done with! He has been doing implants in our family for years, grandma (who had over 7 implants done with him), my nephew, my sister in law and so on. Totally trustworthy and great person! Excelente Periodontal Specialist!"

"If you are looking for a professional periodontist who treats you with respect, dignity, and actually cares about the end result rather than just the money, then you MUST go visit Dr. Denemark! Dr. Denemark and his staff, especially Marci, are extremely personable and care about the quality of their work. I highly recommend their work and most definitely will recommend them to friends and family. I appreciate you all and thank you for making what could've been a scary experience, a pleasant one."
