Laughing Gas – a Giant Milestone to Overcome Fear and Stress!
Safe, Painless, Stress-Free
Laughing Gas (Inhallation Sedation) in 24/7 Denta-Med Clinic!
Patients often feel dental fear and there is nothing strange about it. Taking care of your comfort, we offer anaesthesia procedure with the so-called laughing gas. This sedation procedure is possible with the use of the device which mixes oxygen and nitrous oxide. This gas mixture is fully safe for everone. As a result, our Patients can have only positive memories after a dental visit in our centre. When inhaled, nitrous oxide will relax you and will function as a mild sedative, reducing pain. Nitrous oxide is a gas which does not cause allergies or mucosal irritations, and it does not affect the central nervous system. What is important, the Patient who is under its influence retains consciousness and is able to control all reactions and senses.
What does the laughing gas procedure look like?
The laughing gas procedure can be applied in case of all Patients who are more than 3 years old. Laughing gas is inhaled through a special mask that fits over your nose. Therefore, it is really important for the doctor to stay in contact and full cooperation with the Patient. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed. This takes only 10 – 15 minutes.
Nasal masks – How to use them? How to buy? How many do you need?
Our clinic offers nasal masks of three sizes (S, M, L) and with different, interesting fragrances (e.g. vanilla or bubble gum). You can buy them just before a dental visit and use them during every next procedure (they are re-usable). However, in case of our youngest Patients we recommend buying the mask a few days before a dental appointment and trying it at home together with your kid. Putting the mask over the child’s nose and making some simple breathing exercises will let your child get used to the mask. In this way, the child is not afraid when the dentist puts the mask on her/his nose during the procedure and is perfectly prepared for the visit. Such simple exercises made at home can be combined with some conversations with the child about a dental appointment. The goal of such exercises and discussions with the child is to make the child feel more comfortable about a dental visit. This will also help the dentist perform the procedure in a faster and more pleasant way.
