Published: October 9, 2013 (Issue # 1781)
Great news! parents from st. petersburg can now breathe a sigh of relief when it comes to taking their children to the dentist. tears will no longer be a problem thanks to the ‘nitrous oxide sedation' service now available and exclusive in saint-petersburg at the veronica children’s dentist clinic.
What is nitrous oxide sedation and how does it work?
In a form of a play, children are shown how to put on and breathe through a mask. A mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide will be put through which has a pleasant sweet taste.
A few minutes after the first inhales, the gas will start making the children relax, light and sounds seem muted. After the effects have taken place, treatment begins. During treatment, children remain fully conscious, can breathe and talk to doctors. The effect of this procedure ends as quickly as occurs. It takes only a few minutes for the gas to leave the lungs.
In which situations this method is used?
In situations when children are facing dental treatment for the fist time or when they are scared due to previous bad experience with doctors. Sedation is also suitable for children with a high gag reflex and sensitivity to light and sound.
What does nitrous oxide sedation give?
It gives an opportunity for children to relax and calm down so that going to dentist will be associated with positive emotions only. Moreover, sedation makes children more diligent thus extending the time they can spend sitting in the dentist chair.
This allows the doctors to have the possibility to do their work faster, more effective and of a better quality. This also is calming for parents as they know their children will have a better experience at the dentist.
Sedation. Anesthesia. Narcosis. What’s the difference?
Sedation is neither anesthesia nor narcosis. It’s a common state of relaxation which allows for proper quality treatment. Local anesthesia is done by reducing sensitivity around a certain tooth, while sedation psychologically intensifies the anesthetic effect. Unlike narcosis during sedation, children are conscious and are able to communicate with doctors, with all reflexes remaining as well.
