Creating a positive patient experience often begins by identifying and addressing any underlying fears or anxiety regarding dental treatment. New techniques of inhalational sedation are leading more and more dental clinicians to choose nitrous oxide-oxygen to alleviate tension in their fearful patients. With a long track record of safety, low cost and ease of use it has become the quasi standard for today’s clinicians.
This CE webinar is part of a triad of webinars that will give a historical perspective, show how to rapidly identify anxiety and phobias related to treatment, explain the clinical science of N2O/O2 application and address occupational safety issues and practice management.
During this CE webinar, the student will • Appreciate the relationship between pain and anxiety • Review the pharmacology of nitrous oxide • Discuss the various levels of sedation • Easily identify minimal, moderate and deep sedation • Differentiate sedation vs general anesthesia • Identify best practices to minimize occupational exposure to nitrous oxide • Understand the inherent safety margin of N2O/O2 use
