Sedation Dentistry Rockford / Loves park

Conscious Sedation (“Twilight Sedation”)

Our office offers our patients the option of Conscious Sedation, also referred to as “Twilight Sedation,” for their dental treatment. This is what sets our office apart from other dental practices; it is our niche, if you will. Conscious sedation or “twilight sedation” helps you to be comfortable and calm when undergoing dental procedures. Your treatment can be completed for you under conscious sedation, if you so desire. Conscious sedation (twilight sedation) is designed to better enable you undergo your dental procedures while you are very relaxed. It will enable you to tolerate as well as not remember those procedures that may be very uncomfortable for you. Sedation will essentially help alleviate the anxiety associated with your treatment. You may not always be asleep but you will be comfortable, calm and relaxed, drifting in and out of sleep – a “twilight sleep”.

Sedation Dentistry for the Disabled

It may be especially difficult for people with disabilities to obtain access to proper dental care. They must find a dentist who is skilled and compassionate, and who can provide services for which some dentists may not be qualified. At Burch Dental, we provide the expertise, state-of-the-art-equipment, and dedication to assisting special-needs patients necessary to ensuring great oral care for our patients. Disabled patients may face added challenges in maintaining their oral health. Their disability may make it difficult to brush or floss regularly; they may also suffer a severe gag reflex, or dry mouth as a result of medication. Burch Dental meets these challenges with sedation dentistry for the disabled and can ease the fear associated with out-of-control oral hygiene with one visit.

Sedation Dentistry for the Fearful

Dental phobia is a real, often overwhelming reality for thousands of people. Negative previous dental experiences, fear of needles or drills, and severe gag reflexes are just some of the reasons people feel extreme anxiety when thinking about visiting the dentist. If you suffer from dental phobia- fear no more! At Burch Dental, we are committed to understanding the very real nature of your fears. Not only will our staff treat you with delicacy and care, but conscious sedation will allow you to experience dentistry in a whole new way.
