Sedation Dentistry


While the Barco Family Dentistry team works hard to make sure every patient we see feels completely comfortable and free from stress or anxiety during every visit, we know the gentlest and kindest dentistry team may not be enough for every patient. If you’re one of the patients who experience severe dental anxiety, sensitivity in the teeth, gums, or gag reflex, or who struggles to numb with local anesthesia alone, we may recommend nitrous oxide sedation. This sedative earned the nickname laughing gas due to the euphoric effect it has on people. It has been used for more than a century, and nitrous oxide remains popular because it offers gentle sedation and reduced sensation that sets in quickly and wears away just as fast. That means you’ll feel completely comfortable right away, and you’ll be able to go back to your daily routine immediately following treatment. If you would like to find out more about nitrous oxide sedation, don’t hesitate to ask at your next visit or give our Bloomington dental office a call. We welcome patients from nearby Martinsville and Ellettsville, IN.
