Nitrous Oxide Sedation in Dentistry
Nitrous oxide-oxygen sedation is an anxiolytic adjunctive service which can provide child and adult dental patients with a more comfortable and less apprehensive dental experience. To be properly administered, both didactic and hands-on clinical education are necessary. Online self-study and webinar courses can provide dental professionals with comprehensive didactic information regarding nitrous oxide administration, but full certification cannot be obtained through distance learning alone. Hands-on clinical experience is mandatory to receive full certification for administering nitrous oxide-oxygen sedation.
Any dental professional seeking certification in nitrous oxide administration should locate an approved clinical CE provider as well as seeking didactic education from an Approved Didactics CE Provider
