INHALOSEDATION – NITROUS GAS SEDATION
THE BENEFITS OF NITROUS GAS SEDATION
This type of sedation aims for the relaxation of the patient both prior and during dental procedures and uses a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen (the so called laughing gas). The patient is conscious, receptive, cooperative and all together relaxed.
Most of the people avoid seeing the dentist out of fear. Nitrous gas Sedation helps them overcome this fear. It is a safe, efficient and friendly method.
WHAT IS NITROUS GAS SEDATION?
The nitrous oxide is combined with oxygen and inhaled, which causes a conscious sedation, eliminating the anxiety but leaving the patient receptive to questions and cooperative during treatment. The effect lasts for as long as it is administered and goes away with stopping the inhalation.
IS NITROUS GAS SEDATION SAFE?
It is the safest sedative used in dentistry. It is gentle, non-toxic and exits the lungs within 2-3 minutes. These features make it suitable for both children and adults, helping them to overcome their fear of the dentist.
