Nitrous oxide sedation is used successfully in dental offices across the nation to assist in the management of pain and anxiety. During this course, we will discuss the basic principles of use and safety of Nitrous Oxide, contraindications that should be taken into consideration with specific patients and health issues, and work control practices to insure the safety of the staff and the patient. Nitrous Oxide can be a great benefit to the patient or a significant liability to the dental practice if the routine procedures are not balanced with an acute awareness of the effect it can have on certain patients. Topics covered will also include the biological effects of nitrous oxide and information regarding the regulation of nitrous oxide in clinical practice.
