Kafka Care offers the Pro-Nox™ nitrous oxide system for anxiety-free, painless care during treatment.
Pro-Nox™ is patient administered analgesia using a hand-held tube through which you breathe. The tube delivers nitrous oxide, the same substance as the laughing gas you’ may have had during visits to the dentist to keep relaxed and calm in a 50:50 mixture with oxygen. This way you are getting even more oxygen than breathing regular air. The controlled percent of nitrous oxide means you are never put to sleep. You can talk with Dr. Kafka and manage your own comfort level during the procedure. Nitrous oxide wears off in around 5 minutes after you stop inhaling it, so you can return to your normal life – whether socializing, working, or even driving – immediately after your appointment.
We use Pro-Nox™ to cut patient anxiety, pain and discomfort. In many cases, we can eliminate the use of numbing creams and shorten appointment times (since we don’t have to wait for the creams to take effect).
Most of our patients who have tried Pro-Nox™ say they will never go back to treatments without it.
