Conscious Sedation

It is extremely common to have Dentophobia or Odontophobia – a fear of dentists. Dental anxiety can be disturbing but ignoring dental treatment could prove to be worse.

It is with this in mind that we decided to offer Conscious sedation as an option to our patients in our all branches.

Conscious Sedation  – All Locations

It is but a form of sedation that involves the use of nitrous oxide commonly known as “laughing gas” which like the name suggests, is mild enough to keep a patient conscious and strong enough to reduce pain during treatments.It’s fast acting, quickly reversible with no aftereffects or drowsiness – so simple and straight forward that you may be able to drive yourself home after your dental visit.

Conscious Sedation is clinically proven to be safe for children and adults alike. We recommend this treatment in case of:
Dental anxiety and phobia.
Inability of the patient to cooperate.
Special needs.
A gag reflex.

The gas with a faint sweet odor is administered through a nosepiece, and the patient will be awake, aware and able to take instructions throughout the procedure.

The combination of inhaled nitrous oxide and oxygen is a safe, effective and widely used means of managing pain and anxiety in dental patients.

No, it is not. Nitrous oxide affects the nervous system, which dulls sensitivity to pain. This gas helps take away the anxiety and allows patients to feel calm. However, local anesthetic may still be used to help dull pain.
