Benefits of Nitrous oxide
Inhalation sedation has a long history of usage due to the many advantages of nitrous oxide versus other forms such as oral or intravenous sedation. Nitrous oxide is widely used in dentistry for over a century and it is considered as the most versatile and safe method of dental sedation. It has very few side effects and it can be used by most of the patients to manage dental anxiety and pain.
Advantages of Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Because of its specific pharmacokinetic properties, nitrous oxide can offer significant benefits to the anxiety patient and it also has several advantages over other dental sedation methods. Advantages of nitrous oxide include:
Dental anxiety control
Nitrous oxide sedation is very effective for mild to moderate anxiety. The basic advantage of nitrous oxide sedation is that it can help transform patients with dental anxiety into relaxed and fully co-operative patients by relieving the stress, fear and anxiety associated with dental visits. The fact that many patients have little or no memory of their dental treatment under sedation reduces the fear for the next appointments.
Nitrous oxide does not only reduces anxiety, but it also has analgesic properties by increasing the patient’s threshold of pain. Although it offers only mild pain control, this can be enough for simple not invasive procedures, reducing the need for additional local anesthesia. Its pain relieving action can help people who have difficulty getting numb.
Patient – dentist communication
Nitrous oxide provides light sedation, meaning that the patient remains conscious being able to communicate with the dentist and respond to instructions, and the protective reflexes are maintained.
No preparation is needed
If during a regular dental visit, your dentist finds out that you need a treatment for which you will be more comfortable when sedated, you will need to schedule a next appointment if any other sedation method t han nitrous oxide is used. For oral sedation you must have taken a pill prior to the appointment and with iv sedation you have to be escorted by someone to drive you home after the treatment. With inhalation dentistry you do not need any prior arrangements; you can be sedated immediately.
It is fast acting with its anti-anxiety and pain killing effect felt within 2-3 minutes. All the dentist has to do is to place a mask over your nose, administer the nitrous oxide and you will be relaxed in seconds.
Patients with fear of needles will appreciate the fact that no shots are required for inhalation sedation. For simple treatments you may not need shots for local anesthesia either. But even if you need, you will be so relaxed by the nitrous oxide that you will not care about getting a shot.
