Question:
Anesthesia and Pain Control: Can valium, local anesthesia, and nitrous oxide be used on a healthy adult patient that is nervous about an extraction?

What would be the side effects of using these in combination? ...Visitor from PA

Answer:
This is one of the oldest and most frequent use of a "sedation protocol" that can make dentistry almost enjoyable. For most patients pain perception is minimized or eliminated.... while long treatment sessions seem like 15 minutes.

Vital signs are monitored throughout treatment.

Complications are only an event that is usually associated with the patient's medical and medication history.
