To ensure that you have the highest level of comfort, we use the Penthrox inhaler (green whistle/happy gas alternative) to relieve both anxiety and pain.
Many of our patients have found the inhaler to be extremely effective in calming nerves and have reported a “warm, floating and relaxed” sensation only after on 6-8 breathes. The inhaler takes effect rapidly and is effective for all dental procedures; from routine fillings to surgical wisdom teeth removal.
The great thing about Penthrox that you are able to control your own level of sedation while remaining safely able to communicate with your dentist. The gas leaves your body quickly after the procedure without drowsiness and side-effects.
It is also cost effective as a procedure with Penthrox sedation is only an additional $100.
