Along with effective local anesthesia, we can offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and conscious oral sedation to make you less anxious and to feel as comfortable as possible. Our goal is not to let anxiety get in the way of you receiving the quality care you deserve.
Nitrous oxide is safe and easily administered during dental treatment utilizing a little cone that fits on your nose. This type of sedation has been found helpful for patients with a gag reflex and for young and old that experience dental anxiety.
“Relaxation or Sleep dentistry” are other known names for oral sedation. You will take a pill recommended and prescribed by Dr. Barr before your dental treatment. You will feel very calm and relaxed but are still able to respond and be awake for your appointment. A responsible adult will need to drive you to and from your appointment.
