Nitrous oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. Nitrous oxide is safe; the patient receives 50-70 percent oxygen with no less than 30 percent nitrous oxide. It is a sweet smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas which is inhaled. The patient is able to breathe on his or her own and remain in control of all bodily functions.
The patient may experience mild amnesia and may fall asleep not remembering all of what happened during their appointment.
There are many advantages to using nitrous oxide:
Though there are no major contraindications to using nitrous oxide, you may not want to use it if you have emphysema, chest problems, multiple sclerosis, a cold, or other difficulties with breathing.
You may want to ask the expert team at Pannu Dental Care for a five-minute trial to see how you feel with this type of sedation method before proceeding.
It Really Works! You really can relax through your dental appointment.
It Is Safe! Trained Dr will give you a small pill prior to treatment, no intravenous tubes or needles. You probably won't remember any sounds or smells.
You will relax for up to five or six hours after taking the pill. The time you are relaxing will vary depending on your needed treatment.
Complex multiple dental treatments that often require six to eight appointments, can be done in as little as one at Pannu Dental Care! All while you relax.
People who have difficulty getting numb will find that relax dentistry eliminates this problem.
Sedation dentistry is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatment requiring long visits.
