It is a technique that promotes the abolition of pain, sedating deeply, so that loss of consciousness, sensitivity and reflexes occur. It is used so that surgeries are performed without the patient feeling any pain or discomfort during the procedures.
The conscious sedation technique by inhalation of nitrogen oxide and oxygen is a safe and noninvasive technique. The patient breathes this mixture through a nasal mask, remaining conscious during the consultation. The effects of this technique include the reduction of anxiety and of the perception of the treatment that is being carried out, allowing a quality and safe treatment for both the dental team and the patient.
