Also known as the Green Whistle, Penthrox is inhaled through the custom-built PENTHROX® INHALER. Pain relief should start after 6-10 breaths and is intended to reduce the severity of pain, rather than completely eliminate it. At the recommended dose, PENTHROX® provides pain relief without producing numbness and has calming properties to help relieve the stress and anxiety that can be associated with visiting the dentist.
Sometimes referred to as happy gas or laughing gas, nitrous oxide works very rapidly. Reaching the brain within 20 seconds, its relaxation and pain-killing properties develop after 2 to 3 minutes. With very minimal prolonged side effects, it’s the safest form on sedation available and suitable for most medical conditions including asthma & diabetes. The effects wear off minutes after use is stopped, making it safe to drive afterwards.
