You may be a reluctant visitor to the dentist, or just want to feel as if dental treatment is 'at arm's length'. Nitrous oxide and medical oxygen are mixed to provide a sedative affect. This slightly sweet smelling gas induces a relaxed feeling, and the concentration of the gases is adjusted for your comfort.
Happy gas can mean less need for local anesathetic.
After treatment with Nitrous oxide, and an appropriate recovery period, you are able to go on with your day (no hangover).
CHILDREN AND HAPPY GAS
Nitrous Oxide (also known as conscious sedation) provides a helping hand. Going to the dentist is sometimes a nervous time for a child (and their parent) and, at times, can be the difference between a successful dental visit or having to reschedule, or in some cases, treatment under general anaesthetic.
