We now proudly offer Pro-Nox, a patient-controlled analgesic that helps calm patient’s nerves allowing them to feel comfortable during treatment.
What is Pro-Nox?
Pro-Nox is a patient-controlled inhaler that delivers a combination of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide to alleviate pain and anxiousness. Nitrous is one of the oldest sedatives in medicine, it’s use dates back more than a century. It is commonly known as laughing gas. While it is not a replacement for anesthesia, it does complement and enhance the effects of local anesthetics, like lidocaine.
Pro-Nox takes effect in seconds and wears off in about five minutes so you can drive home with no downtime. While Pro-Nox is self-administered by the patient, the system contains a number of safety measures, like an automated shut-off system based on how much gas has been administered.
