Advanced Technology

When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Baysa and staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.

Infection Control Practices

Dr. Baysa and our entire team follow procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These measures include:

  • Disinfectant hand soap

  • Gloves and face masks

  • Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces

  • Sterilization of all equipment before every use

  • Disposable materials

 

We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.

The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.

Use of Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colorless gas which you can breathe.

Nitrous Oxide has been the primary means of sedation in dentistry for many years. Nitrous oxide is safe, the patient receives 50-70% oxygen with no less than 30% nitrous oxide.

The patient is able to breathe on their own and remain in control of all bodily functions. The patient may experience mild amnesia and may fall asleep, not remembering all of what happened during their appointment.

  • The depth of sedation can be altered at any time to increase or decrease sedation.

  • There is no after effect such as a "hangover".

  • Inhalation sedation is safe with no side effects on your heart and lungs, etc.

  • Inhalation sedation is very effective in minimizing gagging.

  • It works rapidly as it reaches the brain within 20 seconds. In as little as 2-3 minutes its relaxation and pain killing properties develop.

 

*Reasons to not use Nitrous Oxide: You should not utilize Nitrous Oxide if you have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Though there are no other major contraindications to using nitrous oxide, you may not want to use it if you have emphysema, exotic chest problems, M.S., a cold or other difficulties with breathing. You may want to ask your dentist for a "5 minute trial" to see how you feel with this type of sedation method before proceeding.
