Take a deep breath and….
The mixture used in dental sedation is often called the laughing gas. And rightly so!
It helps those of our Patients who suffer from intense fear of pain. The combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide has a calming, relaxing effect on the body.
As a method relatively simple to implement, it does not require us to reach for injections or other unpleasant procedures. Furthermore, it scores highly on the safety scale.
It also gives doctors the possibility of treating many cavities during one appointment – provided, of course, that it was the Patient’s exact wish.
After putting the scented face mask over one’s nose and inhaling the gas, the sedation (calming) process begins.
The key to success is Patient’s cooperation. All throughout the session, consciousness is maintained: it is possible to move, speak, spit and move.
Considering the fact that the sedative effect subsides fairly quickly after the procedure’s end, being subjected to such treatment may not even require major daily schedule changes on Patient’s side – and as for the individual cases, your doctor will provide you with the details and explanations that you may need or wish for.
In which cases can dental sedation prove to be most beneficial?
✨ intense appointment- and treatment-related fear
✨ high anxiety and fear of needles
✨ retching reflex
✨ minor dental surgery
✨ deciduous teeth extractions
✨ long, uncomfortable treatment sessions
✨ trepanning (opening) the tooth, especially in an acute phase of the inflammation
✨ cavity preparation
✨ early caries treatment
General health conditions, in which dental sedation is not only possible, but often directly beneficial, include: asthma, epilepsy, selected heart/circulatory system malfunctions, hypertension.
Such results are strongly tied to the reduction of fear and stress levels, which in turn prevents exacerbation of the above-mentioned conditions.
Furthermore, depending on a type of dental procedure, sometimes it can even be possible to avoid planned injections. That may prove crucial, for example in cases of haemophiliac Patients.
