There is no need to let a dental phobia threaten your oral health. When you visit us at the Institute of Dental Implants and Periodontics for treatment, we can offer various forms of conscious sedation to ensure you remain fully relaxed and comfortable during your procedure. Please contact us at 847-662-3414 if you are interested in learning more about conscious sedation or would like to arrange your visit with Dr. Erdle or Dr. Bogard.

There are many benefits to sedation dentistry, including:

  • Conscious sedation is quick and extremely safe.
  • It produces the necessary amnesic effect for a comfortable experience.
  • Conscious sedation typically costs less than other forms of sedation.

If you and Dr. Erdle or Dr. Bogard determine that conscious sedation is right for you, specific home and pre-sedation appointment instructions will be provided to you before your visit. When you arrive to our office, you will be administered a medication that will help you relax. It is very important that you have a family member or friend drive you to and from your appointment to provide maximum safety to yourself and others. You will be awake but extremely relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for you to not remember all of the details of your appointment.
