This is a really simple technique that involves spraying a small amount of a fine sedative mist up the nostril, similar in feel to a antihistamine nasal spray.
Ater about 10 minutes, the patient is already very extremely relaxed and the needle fear goes away. We use this technique a lot now before the intravenous route.
It is extremely safe and comfortable, perfect if you hate the needle!Dr Rob Endicott, Dentist
