Sedation Dentistry Options In Geneva, IL
At Khanna Dentistry, Dr. Khanna offers two types of sedation: I.V Sedation and Nitrous Oxide. Dr. Neeraj Khanna is certified in Illinois to administer I.V. sedation to patients at our Geneva dental office. To determine which sedation option is right for you, Dr. Khanna will review your medical history and may consult with your primary care physician.
- I.V. Sedation Dentistry: I.V Sedation is a safe, effective way to help patients feel relaxed during their treatment. I.V sedation is categorized as a conscious sedation option. I. V sedation is administered through an I.V line. During your treatment, Dr. Khanna closely monitors your blood pressure, pulse oximeter, and EKG. Most patients report remembering little to nothing about their treatment.
- Nitrous Oxide: Nitrous oxide is commonly known as “laughing gas.” Nitrous oxide is a fast acting, safe sedation method. Nitrous oxide is inhaled during treatment which helps patients relax, and patients may even experience a feeling of euphoria. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask that fits comfortably over the nose, once nitrous oxide is removed, patients will no longer feel its effects.
