Penthrox®, also known as the “green whistle”, is a medicine in the form of an inhaler which is used to reduce pain. It is a clear, almost colourless liquid with a characteristic fruity smell. Patients who are anxious but are not willing to undergo general anaesthesia can have access to Penthrox® during the procedure to make it relaxing and pain free.
We understand that attending the dental surgery can be an anxious experience for some. We have an ongoing relationship with our community hospitals with access to general anaesthesia services allowing you to undergo our services whilst you are asleep.
