In particular for anxious patients, we have started to offer treatments with a so- called laughing gas sedation.
Many people fear their dentists visits. If this is your case, we have good news. We have just stared to offer a sedation (relaxation in a fully conscious state) with laughing gas in our clinic. Through this sedation, our patients are more relaxed during treatment and can be nearly free of all pain. With modern technology and trained personnel this tested and approved method is now also available to our patients in our clinic.
Relaxation at the dentist through laughing gas (nitrous oxid) in Kitzbühel/Tyrol
Through a small mask you inhale a mix of oxygen and laughing gas through your nose. The soothing effect of this mix helps to relax and reduce anxiety. In this state you are always completely responsive and master of your senses. With the reduced fear your sensitivity of pain also reduces. The effect of the treatment is vanishes within 5 minutes after the treatment and you can leave the clinic unaccompanied.
Knowledge and control
Thanks to modern medical technic the application of this method is considered very safe. Patients sometimes describe a tingling sensation in the feet and hands, a sensation of warmth in the entire body, a feeling of numbness in the legs, the tongue, the mucous membranes, tingeln in the ears, euphoria, lightness and heaviness.
If you are not comfortable with laughing gas you can breathe through your mouth and ask your dentist to end the sedation.
