COVID-19:

Our specialty of Endodontics is focused on providing care to those patients with dental pain and/or infections. We at Best Endodontics of Glenview will be open to seeing those patients with emergent or urgent care needs. Closing our office or turning away patients who have dental pain and/or infection would not only be unethical but unconscionable. This also serves to keep patients with dental issues out of hospitals and emergency care clinics. Our protocol is in agreement with the American Dental Association’s and Illinois State Dental Society’s current COVID-19 treatment guidelines.

To ensure the safety of our patients, family members, communities, and dental team members, our office will continue to provide proper OSHA infection control protocols (handwashing, hand sanitizing, gloves, masks, etc.), with additional efforts of thorough disinfection of common areas, and maintaining social distance in the waiting rooms. We will see only patients who are in need of urgent or emergent care through Tuesday, March 31, or until further notice depending on the pandemic situation surrounding COVID-19.


Anxiety Reduction

Our goal is to provide the highest standard of endodontic treatment while ensuring that your experience is as comfortable as possible. Root canal treatment has come a long way and many now describe it as similar to having a dental filling. Most patients undergoing root canal treatment for the first time are pleasantly surprised afterwards at how painless and comfortable it was. In addition to providing local anesthesia to ensure that the tooth is profoundly numb, we work hard to reduce anxiety during the procedure. For those that need additional anxiety relief we do offer additional services.

To assist our patients in having a more relaxed visit, we offer nitrous oxide (“laughing gas’) and /or oral sedation for those individuals needing additional help in dealing with dental anxiety and phobia. Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” is delivered through a mask on the nose that safely combines nitrous oxide with oxygen at varying concentrations to find the level of comfort that suits you.

Another option for those with severe dental anxiety or phobia is oral premedication (e.g., Halcion or Valium) which induces a deeper state of relaxation.  This means that you would take a pill prior to the procedure and while in a relaxed state you will still be able to communicate with the dentist while treatment is being performed. When taking oral premedication you will need to have someone drive you to and from the office.  Please call our office if you are interested in these methods of anxiety reduction and how they might work for you.
