If you or your child has had a bad dental experience or is unable to stay calm while visiting the dentist, ask us about sedation dentistry in Bloomington. We want all of our patients to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible while receiving excellent dental care. For simple dental procedures, topical anesthetics are applied to the gums and other tissues reducing oral sensation. If you require sedation dentistry in Bloomington, nitrous oxide and general anesthesia are safe solutions.
