Penthrox® — “Green Whistle”
Penthrox is inhaled through a custom-built Penthrox inhaler and usually starts working within 6-10 breaths.
Penthrox removes both the fear of needles and pain because it can be inhaled and start to work almost right away. One 3 mL bottle of Penthrox provides approximately 20-25 minutes of no pain.
It is a clear, almost colourless liquid with a fruity smell that becomes a vapour or gas easily once it has been poured into the Penthrox inhaler.
It is a safe, convenient and effective means of providing pain relief to patients.
Kreativ Dental Albury provides all aspects of sedation dentistry care for different types of dental treatments to all patients at our Albury office.
How Does Penthrox Work?
With Penthrox, you are in control of the amount of pain relief needed.
Breathe through the mouthpiece, ensuring that the “dilutor” hole of the AC Chamber is not covered.
To ensure that you are used to taking in the Penthrox, your first few breaths should be gentle.
You can breathe through a chamber attached to the inhaler, or you can breathe out through your nose, whichever makes you comfortable.
