Dental Sedation Has Many Benefits

Personalized Sedation Options

We offer sedation dentistry for both pediatric and adult patients.

Dr. Matha is trained in administering these services and works with a specialized dental anesthesiologist when IV sedation is needed.

Nitrous Oxide

This mild sedative is safe and effective for patients of all ages. It’s used in combination with local anesthetic that numbs the treatment site, for example when we fill cavities. You breathe in normally while nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen is filtered through a mask that fits comfortably over your nose. Levels are continuously adjusted throughout your procedure to ensure you feel relaxed the entire time.

Oral Sedation

Anti-anxiety medication is taken a few hours before your appointment to put you in a calm state. While the effects last, you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed without worrying about the procedure you’re undergoing, such as a root canal. Since the effects of oral medication can last past your appointment, it’s advised that you have someone drive you home afterward.
IV sedation

IV Sedation

Sometimes called sleep dentistry, IV sedation is the only one that lets you “sleep” comfortably through your appointment. With IV sedation dentistry in Bloomington, MN we’ll help you experience stress and pain-free treatments including smile makeovers and dental implants. You’ll be carefully monitored during treatment and afterwards to ensure the sedation wears off as it should. You’ll need to have someone drive you home and may feel slightly sluggish for the remainder of the day.
