Nitrous Oxide Sedation Munich
Thanks to the gentle methods of modern dentistry, there is no longer any reason to feel stressed or anxious on your visit to the dentist. However, there are still people who are confronted with a strong emotional aversion to dental treatment or medical treatment in general. In dentistry, we refer to this as dental anxiety. Patients who suffer from it require special attention and empathy during treatment. In our Munich dental practice, the most recent technological achievement in this regard is sedation using nitrous oxide. It can make your treatment more relaxed than ever before.
Advantages of Nitrous Oxide Sedation Munich
Unfortunately, it is precisely those people with the strongest fear of dental procedures who are statistically the most at risk for problems in the oral area. This is due to their tendency to neglect routine check-ups and avoid examination by a medical specialist when they experience mild pain or troubles. The consequence: Small everyday problems which would be easy and straightforward to solve when treated early are left to turn into big problems over the course of months and years.
For this reason, it is our task to make visits to our dental practice in Munich as easy and pleasant for our dental anxiety patients as we possibly can. An especially gentle, but highly effective method of ensuring you will feel relaxed and at ease during your treatment is sedation using nitrous oxide. For this, we use state-of-the-art medical equipment which guarantee an optimal oxygen supply and eliminate even the smallest safety risk. You feel light and carefree, and the treatment seems to just fly by.
Generally speaking, due to the mild and uncomplicated way nitrous oxide works, anyone who would like to experience an extra-comfortable dental examination or treatment at Dr. Butz & Partner Munich can be sedated with nitrous oxide. However, there are in general three groups of patients for whom this kind of sedation is especially suitable:
- Patients with dental anxiety.
- Children who experience fear of the dentist or who have trouble sitting still and keeping their mouth opened during an examination of treatment.
- People with an unusually strong gag reflex who experience discomfort with any kind of contact with dental instruments in their oral cavity.
Procedure of Nitrous Oxide Sedation Munich
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a colourless gas with a slightly sweet smell and taste. The body can very easily absorb, but not metabolise it. This means that it does not leave any traces in the body after treatment.
It is also commonly known as laughing gas because it induces a pleasant feeling of joy and lightness which can bring some patients to giggle a bit. In any case, the treatment is experienced positively. This can not only help to temporarily suppress dental anxiety, but can also lead to lasting positive changes in how patients who may have had a bad experience at the dentist in the past think of visiting a dentist in the future.
In our Munich dental practice, a comfortable silicon mask will be placed over your nose. Through it, you will be able to breathe without any problems while a precisely controlled part of the air your breathe is replaced by a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide. The concentration can very easily be lowered or raised, enabling your dentist to quickly react to your wishes and regulate your sedation. You will be fully conscious during the entire procedure, able to talk to your dentist. In this way, you will have a direct say in regulating the dosage you receive. In addition, your pulse and oxygen supply will be monitored by a specific device at every point of the treatment. A few minutes after, the effects will be completely gone and you will be able to leave the practice as you usually do. There are no known allergies.
