Laughing gas is one of the best ways to greatly reduce dental anxiety. Nevertheless, it is offered in only a few dental practices - yet it is precisely the fear of the dentist that is such an important issue for numerous patients. We offer nitrous oxide in both our Aachen and Stolberg dental practices because we believe that this time-tested method of anesthesia still deserves its permanent place in dentistry.

- Nitrous oxide is non-toxic - There are no known side effects
- Laughing gas leaves your body completely residue-free immediately after treatment.
COURSE OF TREATMENT WITH LAUGHING GAS
THE CHOICE OF THE RIGHT MASK
The mask must fit as well as possible. Therefore, we have to determine for you the right size for your own mask from a selection of verschiendenen mask sizes. In addition, you have the choice of different fruity fragrances, which you may of course test.
BREATHING THROUGH THE MASK
The mask is worn during the entire treatment and is connected to the nitrous oxide breathing apparatus with some hoses. The mask ensures that the supply of the adjusted mixture remains as constant as possible and also extracts the used breathing air. This keeps you at the right level of relaxation and allows you to relax even before the treatment. Only when everything is right, the treatment is started.
ENSPANNUNG BEGINS QUICKLY
After a few minutes the effect begins to take effect and together we will find the right level for your well-being.
Here's what the nitrous oxide does:
- Relaxation and security
- Inner peace
- Anxiety Reduction
- Pain reduction
- abbreviated sense of time
AFTER THE TREATMENT
As soon as the treatment is complete, we stop the supply of the gas mixture. The effect and all residues of nitrous oxide intake in your body dissipate within a few minutes and you quickly regain your composure. The treatment was relaxed and light-footed for you.
In general anesthesia, the patient is placed in a state of controlled unconsciousness with a constant supply of anesthetics (medicinal anesthetics), in which the patient has no perception whatsoever. He is in a very deep stupor and is neither responsive nor does he have any sensation of pain.
If a treatment is very complex, general anesthesia is often the adequate anesthesia for the patient. However, for some people who suffer from massive dental anxiety, it is the only option, purely psychologically, to even consider dental treatment. At the same time, dental treatments are sometimes not just a matter of feeling good, but are urgently needed to contain health risks. In such cases, the state of unconsciousness the only means to actually address such procedures.
When we perform dental treatment under general anesthesia, an experienced anesthesiologist is at our disposal and accompanies the anesthesia throughout the treatment. After the procedure, you will be given the opportunity to rest and freshen up and get back to everyday life. Completely controlled - the way it is right.
