„Inhalation sedation” is a method of combating fear and anxiety towards pain that is applicable in various branches of dentistry and medicine. Sedation with nitrous oxide or „laughing gas” involves a state of physical rest, pleasant relaxation and calmness. Used in our dental practice is a Class A medical device for the administering of nitrous oxide.
It is equipped with a safety valve that allows quick disconnection of the supply of nitrous oxide in the event of any undesirable patient reactions. To use it, neither a doctor nor an anaesthetist is necessary. Nitrous oxide does not cause drowsiness, which makes it possible to maintain communication and cooperation. The gas has relaxing and calming properties. Its effect disappears almost immediately after administration.
