What is Conscious Sedation?
Conscious sedation is defined by a minimally suppressed level of consciousness that allows the patient to breathe consciously and autonomously. The patient is able to respond properly to physical stimuli and to verbal commands.
Conscious sedation using nitrous oxide – how does it work?
Conscious sedation by inhalation of nitrous oxide and oxygen is the most frequently used sedation method in America and in Europe.
This technique, used for over 100 years, minimises pain, relaxes the patient and facilitates dental treatment. Nitrous oxide is a colourless respirable gas. It is administrated via inhalation through a nasal mask. The patient remains conscious and is monitored throughout the whole dental process.
