Inhalation Sedationby praxe2apHe2eSwa
One of our dentists, Carrie Preston, has many years experience of treating children with the assistance of Inhalation Sedation (Relative Analgesia or RA). This is similar to the gas and air used by women in labour/child birth and is used to reduce anxiety and stress, to help relaxation during dental treatment and to promote a feeling of comfort and well-being. This effective procedure is very safe (hence the use in labour), has no side effects and is very popular with children – children often ask to come back for more! It is a very good tool, along with good patient management, for helping anxious children (and adults) through their treatment and ensuring they are happy and willing to come back in the future.
