Inhalation, a help to go to the dentist more relaxed

Going to the dentist is often a cause of anxiety and fear for many patients who, for this reason, delay the moment of going to the consultation. But the delay generates aggravation of dental problems that can worsen the oral health status and may require much more complex treatments. 

For this reason, at Life Dental Spa we use various techniques to help dental phobic patients overcome their fear of the dentist as well as anxiety during dental treatments. So the treatment can become pleasant and relaxing with the help of inhalation sedation, an effective and safe option for dental phobic patients to regain the confidence to go to the dentist.

What is and what does inhalation entail?

Inhalosedation is a safe method in which a nasal mask is applied to the patient, with the help of which they inhale a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen, which quickly produces a pleasant feeling of peace and deep relaxation. 

This mixture is also known as the "gas of happiness" and is completely harmless! Under the effect of inhalation, the patient remains conscious, but relaxed and calm, being able to follow the dentist's instructions without feeling fear.


The purpose of inhalation sedation is to control the patient's fear/phobia and anxiety so that he is in a relaxed state while the dentist performs the dental treatment. 

A major advantage is that, during inhalation, oxygen is present in a much higher percentage (between 50 and 70%) than in the atmosphere (where it is about 20%), so this method is also suitable for elderly patients or with health problems such as high blood pressure or heart problems.

During inhalation, the patient's ability to breathe autonomously, the protective reflexes of the airways and the ability to respond to verbal stimuli are preserved.

So the patient can immediately return to normal activities.

Inhalation is suitable for all patients who are afraid of the dentist, even for children, people with disabilities, those suffering from cardiovascular diseases, hypertensive patients, diabetics.

There are no contraindications, because nitrous oxide is a hypoallergenic gas, which does not remain in the body and does not report contraindications with other drugs. Therefore, even among children, inhalation is a benefit, as children remain cooperative and can breathe through the nose, and sitting in the dentist's chair is possible without fear or anxiety.
