Anaesthesia and Inhalosedation
"Smile is being relaxed”
Most people avoid going to the dentist because of high anxiety, and this leads to the aggravation of their dental problems.
At Neoclinique, you don’t need to be anxious about your procedures, because we use sedation by inhalation (inhalosedation ) and intravenous anesthesia assisted by an ATI physician (analgosedation).
What is inhalosedation?
It is a conscious sedation with nitrous oxide and oxygen.
This means painless dentistry for children and adults that transforms dental anxiety in a calm and relaxed state.
What are some general indications for Inhalosedation?
This type of sedation is indicated for children and adults alike. Those who are uncooperative, anxious, afraid of surgery, afraid of the dentist, have a sensitive gag reflex, have health problems, generally don’t collaborate with the dentist, are afraid of needles and injections (local anaesthesia should be administered even when using inhalosedation), and those with a desire to avoid the discomfort of the surgical act are great candidates for inhalosedation.
We recommend anaesthesia accompanied by inhalosedation for simple of complex interventions on children or special needs adults.
Inhalosedation can be used with any type of dental procedure, not only surgery, if the patient requests it or if the doctor recommends it.
Last but not least, we use inhalosedation in order to increase your comfort during your experience.
Inhalosedation increases treatment efficiency and shortens the intervention time and of the entire visit to the dentist, in the following procedures:
• dental implants, sinus lift, dental extraction
• in all long-term interventions (general dentistry, paediatric dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgeries, oral surgery, periodontal surgery, implantology, periodontology, pathology, endodontics, total aesthetic rehabilitation, functional, etc.)
What happens when you are inhalosedated?
For inhalosedation, we apply a mask on your nose, through which you inhale a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide.
Nitrous oxide is a non-irritating gas, an analgesic, ideal for conscious sedation.
How do you feel during sedation?
During sedation you will have a general state of wellbeing, feel euphoria, detach from reality, your tactile, thermal and visual perception will be altered, you will feel a decrease in attention, feel sleepy, and sound can be distorted.
But throughout the entire procedure, you will be conscious, aware and will talk to the doctor.
How long does the sedation last?
The effect occurs rapidly, and disappears as soon as the gas is discontinued of.
The level of nitrous oxide sedation can be adjusted for your optimum relaxation.
Recovery time ones is short: within 3-5 minutes after discontinuation (100% O2 flush), all effects disappear completely from the body.
In fact, Nitrous oxide has no long-term effects that affect your ability to drive.
You will feel fresh and you can continue your daily activities.
There are none.
After your treatment, you can leave conscious and unaccompanied.
What is and how does it nitrous oxide work exactly? (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a breathable gas and it is colourless, odourless and non-irritating.
It was discovered in 1772 by Humphrey Davy, who described its effects when he administered nitrous oxide for pain caused by a dental infection as follows:
‘On a day when the infection bothered me a lot, I took a deep breath of nitrous oxide. The pain diminished after the 4th breath. Within minutes the pain was replaced by pleasure. '
That sounds very nice! These are the effects of nitrous oxide: it removes pain and replaces it with pleasant, euphoric feeling throughout your body.
It's that kind of "happy drunk” feeling. You may feel tingling in your feet and hands, you may even feel as if you are floating.
The right concentration of Nitrous Oxide is administered through a nasal mask.
You can receive a smaller dose or remove your mask at any time.
It is important that you are able to breathe through your nose, because if the nasal passages are blocked, the gas cannot not be inspired.
Is nitrous oxide safe?
100% Nitrous oxide is a very safe method of sedation used in dental treatment.
This gas is gentle and non-toxic, and it eliminates itself from the body after administration.
Nitrous oxide is recommended for patients with a particular medical history, such as hypertension, angina or who have had a heart attack.
Unlike general anaesthesia, patients that inhale nitrous oxide are conscious and responsive at all times.
Is nitrous oxide safe for children?
Laughing gas is safe, the child relaxes and treatments can be performed without making unpleasant memories.
Nitrous oxide is a very safe and effective sedation method that gives the child a positive experience during dental treatment.
What are the costs involved?
One inhalosedation session costs 200 RON, but if the accepted treatment plans exceeds 5,000 EUR, we offer anaesthesia-assisted inhalosedation for free, no matter how many sessions are needed.
In conclusion, what are the benefits of nitrous oxide?
The state of relaxation and lack of pain is felt very quickly, in just a few minutes. The gas concentration can be adjusted at any moment, depending your needs.
Your body returns to normal within minutes, and you can even operate vehicles.
You will feel relaxed for the rest of the day.
In certain procedures (usually in gingival procedures) inhalosedation can actually replace anesthesia. Generally though, patients want to be anaesthetised while they are happy on the
It is very safe for your health and has no side effects on the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain.
It helps with and even eliminates the gag reflex that can occur during treatment.
Laughing gas can be used in children, anxious patients with dental phobia and patients traumatised by previous dental treatments.
Provides total comfort of anaesthesia.
It can be used in the case of epilepsy, liver disease, heart, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes.
The administration of non-invasive.
Does it always work?
People who suffer from claustrophobia and those who fear they will lose control, will not be comfortable during inhalosedation, even if they would like very much to be able to use it. Anyway, you can try!
Those who can not breathe through their nose can not use it.
In these cases, we offer anaesthesia accompanied by ANALGOSEDATION as another type of sedation, administered intravenously. These substances that will keep you asleep during the entire intervention, it will make ti seem even shorter, and will make for an enjoyable and comfortable experience.
