If you commonly experience anxiety when you visit your dentist or periodontist for oral care, you can relax when it comes to seeing our periodontal specialists at the Institute of Dental Implants and Periodontics in Gurnee, Illinois. Dr. Domagala and Dr. Shango are pleased to offer twilight sedation to help you experience quality care combined with a comfortable experience during your treatment.

Let’s answer a few questions you may have regarding Twilight sedation:

What is twilight sedation? This is a type of sedation known as “conscious sedation”. Not only are you relaxed and comfortable during your procedure, but you are also awake during this time.

How is twilight sedation administered? You will receive a prescription for a pill by our periodontist, so you don’t have to worry about needles if you have problems with injections. You simply take the pill before your appointment time and follow the instructions provided. You will need to have someone drive you to and from our office.

What can I expect during a twilight sedation? You will feel an amnesic effect while remaining comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. When you arrive, you will still be awake and relaxed. However, you might feel drowsy during your procedure, and you may not remember everything that takes place during the treatment.

If twilight sedation sounds appealing to you for your next periodontal treatment, we invite you to give our team a call at 847-662-3414 today to find out more and to schedule a visit. We are here to help you have the best treatment your smile deserves in a positive, relaxing environment!
