Sedation

Leading the way in technology and comfort

Are you one of the 40 million Americans who avoid dental visits because of fear or anxiety? Our dentists offer sedation dentistry to banish fears and calm nervous patients. With oral sedation, you can achieve a beautiful, healthy smile, safely and comfortably. Come in for a consultation and discover if sedation dentistry is right for you.

You and your dentist will discuss your needs, concerns, and past dental experiences. If you qualify for sedation dentistry, you’ll simply take a calming sedative prior to treatment. Your body and mind will relax into a near-sleep state of total calm and comfort so that you can receive the care you need for the smile you deserve.

Sedation dentistry is used every day by millions of people just like you. It allows dentists to potentially perform multiple procedures in a single session, so it’s also a good choice for patients who aren’t necessarily anxious but who don’t want to attend multiple appointments.

The effects of oral sedation wear off gradually. You’ll remember your visit fondly, but you won’t recall treatment details.

Our dentists also use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to lessen anxiety and alleviate potential discomfort. IV sedation is available for time-consuming procedures and for patients who are unable to sit in a dental chair for long periods of time.

Call today to schedule your sedation dentistry consultation with Dr. Cornell McCullom, Dr. Yetta McCullom, or Dr. Robin Ferguson. Our contemporary Chicago dental office serves residents of South Shore, Hyde Park, Calumet Heights, and surrounding areas with professionalism and care for fabulous smiles.
