Conscious sedation for dentistry – Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide/oxygen for conscious sedation for dentistry.

Nitrous oxide/oxygen has shown itself for more than 60 years to be the safest and effective

method of conscious sedation for dentistry. The correct dose of nitrous oxide in oxygen

conscious sedation for dentistry lies between 20% and 40% in most cases, but the gases must

be titrated to the unique dose required for each and every patient in order to obtain the ideal

dose for dental conscious sedation (Conscious sedation for dentistry – Nitrous Oxide). In order

to obtain the correct unique dose for each patient for conscious sedation for dentistry it is necessary

to be correctly trained by a

practitioner who can impart the requisite theoretical background and hands-on practical

training, on the correct customised equipment. Without the necessary theoretical background,

hands-on training on the customised equipment it is not safe or easy to provide the correct

concentration of nitrous oxide/oxygen to the patient The best known safe, reliable and most

widely used, equipment for conscious sedation for dentistry is the MDM Quantiflex (Matrx

by Parker manufactured in the USA). It is regarded by many as the ‘gold standard’ equipment

for conscious sedation in dentistry, because it is so reliable and safe that it meets the high

standards for registration in the USA and Europe. The importance of training and the correct

equipment for conscious sedation for dentistry cannot be emphasised enough. The training

gives the practitioner confidence that he/she is using the gases safely and expertly. The

correct customised equipment ensures that the patient receives at least 30% oxygen at all

times while they are breathing the gas mixtures: Should the oxygen level fall below 30% the

nitrous oxide is automatically halted because of the fail-safe device which is an essential and

intrinsic part of the customised equipment (Conscious sedation for dentistry – Nitrous Oxide).

The specialised equipment also ensures that

environmental pollution of the gas is well within safety standards accepted by leading

countries such as the USA and Europe. Nitrous oxide/oxygen conscious sedation for

dentistry is used almost universally and has found a niche in countries as different as the

United States and China. Over the years dentists and maxillo-facial surgeons worldwide have

found it the best and safest method of anxiety control currently available.
