Nitrous Oxide Sedation - Painless Dentistry
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas is used in surgery and dentistry for its anaesthetic and analgesic effects. It is known as "laughing gas" due to the euphoric effects of inhaling it.It is on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a health system. Nitrous Oxide is often used for root canals, extractions, fillings, bridges,crowns,periodontal treatments and cosmetic procedures. The patient will be in a pleasant, almost dream-like state and likely won’t remember much of the procedure after undergoing this type of painless dentistry and the post-procedure recovery will be much shorter and simpler. Nitrous Oxide is carefully administered through a breathing mask. Nitrous Oxide a mild sedative, so you will still be conscience and able to talk to your dentist during the procedure.After treatment, oxygen is administered for 5-10 minutes to flush any remaining gas. The effects of laughing gas wear off almost immediately. The patient will likely be able to drive themselves home following the procedure.
This procedure can now effectively be used for something as routine as a teeth cleaning. This form of sedation is typically paired with a topical anesthetic that numbs the area where the dentist is working and When these approaches are used in tandem, dentistry truly can become painless.The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recognizes nitrous oxide/oxygen inhalation as a safe and effective technique to reduce anxiety, produce analgesia, and enhance effective communication between a patient and The Dentist.
