What’s new here?

Nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation has seen widespread use in dentistry for over 150 years; benzodiazepines were introduced in the 1960s. The safety and effectiveness of these methods is well-documented.

What’s the new twist on these traditional methods?

The difference in DOCS Education’s nitrous training is that we’ll show you how to combine it with single-dose enteral (oral) sedatives to produce an effect that is greater than either method on its own. Take the benefits of N2O sedation—ease of administration, quick absorption and reversal, minimal complications(92), and suitability for a wide range of patients–and pair it with the reliable, longer-acting anxiety relief of benzodiazepines(87). Used together, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Pairing single-dose enteral sedatives with nitrous provides not only dependable pain relief, but gives high-fear patients relief from their anxiety. Your ability to manage both their physical and psychological discomfort will earn trust and loyalty from your patients.
