Penthrox inhaler or more commonly known as ‘the green whistle’ is now available at My Dentist at Cannon Hill. Penthrox is analgesic, which is a medication used for pain relief. The active ingredient in Penthrox is methoxyflurane which works by making people less responsive to excitement and pain. As well as helping to reduce pain, Penthrox will also cause drowsiness. Penthrox is quite often used in the ambulance when people have had serious injury or trauma.
At My Dentist at Cannon Hill, Penthrox is used during wisdom teeth surgery and extraction. It gives people that extra help if they are feeling anxious and nervous about the procedure.
