Nitrous Oxide Products CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Used in dentistry for more than 150 years, nitrous oxide (N2O) remains a common adjunct to local anesthetics, producing analgesic and anxiolytic effects with a rapid onset of action and quick recovery, and excellent efficacy and safety profiles. N2O is administered as a 25%-50% mixture with oxygen, with equipment typically including an N2O and O2 delivery system, a gas mixing bag, and a nasal mask (reusable or disposable) or nasal canula with a positive pressure relief valve

Every N2O system should be equipped with a scavenging system to pick up excess gases. A flow meter or equivalent measuring device should be readily visible, and the vacuum pump should have a capacity of up to 45 liters of air/minute/workstation. Masks should come in various sizes to ensure proper fit.

Older flow tube flowmeter technology is now being replaced by digital electronic flow control devices with resolution of gas flow in increments of 0.1 liter/minute, and the total flow and percentage of oxygen displayed digitally. This eliminates the guesswork or calculations required with simple flow tube devices.

    How does your team communicate during a busy work day? While delivering messages in person may work in a smaller practice, it becomes much more difficult in a larger practice. Just as your front desk manager shouldn’t have to wear running shoes, your clinical staff shouldn’t be interrupted from treating a patient by a knock at the door or the...

    There’s a reason why they call it the “digital leap” in dental practice management software. Change can be scary, especially if you don’t have an adequate safety net or support system. But how do you know if that’s actually what you’ll get once you sign up with a new software provider? This is when peer feedback is so crucial to the...

Compared to zinc phosphate, glass ionomers and other materials, resin cements possess superior strength, durability and hydrophobia along with improved handling and aesthetics. The result is a longer-lasting, better-looking restoration that can be placed...

    It has been demonstrated that dental procedures which combine repetitive motion, compromising posture, and pinch force instrument gripping can cause significant musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), including carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Dong and colleagues noted in 2006 that dental hygienists ranked first in incidence of CTS among all occupations...
