Eliminate Dental Anxiety

Fear and excessive stress of going to the dentist no longer have to hold you back from keeping up with your routine dental visits. Isaacson Dental Center of Bloomington, MN, understands that many people feel overwhelmed at their visits especially if they haven’t been to the dentist in years. We offer safe and effective sedation dentistry to calm your nerves and ensure your comfort in the dental chair.

Our Sedation Options

Relax during your dental procedure.

Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide, more commonly known as laughing gas, not only works quickly, but wears off quickly. A patient puts on a mask over their nose and inhales this sedation option to feel more comfortable during the dental appointment. Patients can safely drive home afterward because it doesn’t have any lingering effects.

Oral Sedation
This type of sedation comes in pill form and is taken orally (by mouth). Patients typically take it about one hour before their visit and may feel drowsy. The effects include a feeling of relaxation and comfort, and if patients do fall asleep, they’re easily woken up. Oral sedation requires a reserved driver.

IV sedation


We typically use IV sedation, AKA intravenous sedation, for more extensive dental treatments or for patients who need a deeper form of sedation. This form of sedation dentistry is administered intravenously and works quickly. Patients are usually asleep, and do require a driver after the appointment.
