Laughing gas sedation makes a comeback

A complex treatment at the dentist is often perceived as more pleasant and shorter with nitrous oxide sedation.

Nitrous oxide is one of the safest, best researched and oldest sedatives worldwide - and has been used successfully in dentistry for over 150 years. It is currently experiencing an unstoppable comeback in Germany.

In many countries, nitrous oxide sedation at the dentist has long been part of everyday life: for example, 90% paediatric dentists in the USA use it every day Nitrous oxide. The German Society for Pediatric Dentistry e. V., DGKiZ for short, recommends the use of nitrous oxide in the treatment of children to prevent trauma.

In England and Scandinavia, laughing gas is also used at almost every birth, as a counterpart to spinal anesthesia. Dermatology has also been discovering the advantages for itself for some time now, especially when treating children. Even adults benefit from treatment with nitrous oxide at the dentist: anxiolysis, gentle Sedation, no accompanying person necessary, no loss of control.

For the dentist himself, the offer brings a Sedation with nitrous oxide - in addition to the unique selling point of the offer in the practice portfolio itself - both an increase in sales and a more relaxed treatment: the absolutely relaxed patient does not feel a gag reflex and the duration of the treatment is perceived to be shorter, so that longer or more complicated interventions are possible. Also the swallowing reflex is reduced.

Certification course at Baldus Sedation

According to the CED decision (Council of European Dentists), a further training course of at least 10 hours must be completed so that nitrous oxide sedation can be used in the practice without an anaesthetist.

Baldus Sedation, a specialist in dental nitrous oxide sedation (Urbar am Rhein), offers appropriate further training in its own course N2O-Academy: Certification courses are held throughout Germany by trained medical product consultants. At each training session, a dentist and an anesthetist also give lectures, who have been using this form of sedation for many years and thus not only impart theory as best practice examples, but also give lectures from practice. In addition to an eight-hour face-to-face event, the academy offers future nitrous oxide users E-learning, to make the time management of the participants efficient.

Everything from a single source for safe use

As a full-service provider for nitrous oxide sedation, Baldus Sedation not only offers training courses, but also nitrous oxide systems "made in Germany", a gas delivery service as well as maintenance and technical service - all from a single source.

Analogue, electric and semi-automated nitrous oxide devices are available. Some of the semi-automatic machines have touchscreen controls, such as the digital one Oxygen-nitrous oxide mixer Baldus® Touch – according to the manufacturer, this is one of the first developments of this type in the world.

Modern nitrous oxide sedation devices from the Baldus portfolio have various safety mechanisms such as the Nitro-Lock (nitrous oxide lock) or the O2 flush button, which supplies pure oxygen directly. In addition, compared to many anesthesia machines, nitrous oxide systems are more compact, more flexible and cheaper.

All nitrous oxide mixers are CE certified and enable easy and absolutely safe handling: The gas mixture can be easily adjusted individually, so that every patient is in a calming state that is optimal for him.

Occupational safety through double mask system

For reasons of workplace safety, the use of double mask systems with a suction device close to the patient makes sense, as this is the lowest indoor air contamination was measured. A recommendation on this was also made by the DGKiZ.

  • Colorful and with feel-good scents: so that children feel even better when being sedated with nitrous oxide.

Autoclavable nasal and disposable masks for adults and children are available for the mask systems. The latter are available in various feel-good scents such as vanilla, strawberry and bubble gum. The Baldus® The double mask system is very user-friendly because the special shape of the double mask completely covers the nose. In this way, Baldus Sedation also implements the wishes of users in the field of workplace safety in an innovative and practical way.
