Which conditions can be treated?
Some patients experience pain or anxiety during treatment. We continually check in with you during your time with us; we offer numbing cream, ice, and appropriate breaks in the treatment, and many of our devices include built-in relief such as cooling air flow. But sometimes more is needed, so we offer PRO-NOX as an add-on service.
What happens during treatment?
As you breath in through the mouthpiece, you may feel warm, “heavy”, euphoric, and/or tingly, and you’ll experience a reduction, of not complete alleviation, of tension, anxiety, pain, and nervousness. You continue to manage your own treatment, self-delivering a dose needed.sue and define which plan suits you the most. Feel free to contact us.
Whats the Science Behind PRO-NOX?
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, used in the PRO-NOX System is a colorless non-flammable gas, with a slight metallic scent and taste. Nitrous oxide has been used in medical practices, especially in surgery and dentistry, for its analgesic and pain reducing effects for over 150 years. Its name, “laughing gas”, coined by Humphry Davy, is due to the euphoric effects upon inhaling it. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, as one of the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system to provide pain relief during medical procedures.
