HAPPY GAS

We try to be as happy as possible for our patients, however, some patients may need a little help - this we can provide in the form of nitrous oxide – happy gas.

Nitrous oxide is a colourless and virtually odourless gas with a faint, sweet smell. It is a great relaxation aid for treatment and is especially useful for visits with the oral hygienist.

Although it does not replace local anaesthetic (when required) it makes the entire visit less stressful. The gas is delivered by way of a nasal mask. The only contra-indications for use are for patients who have breathing or respiratory problems.

For patients who require more profound sedation for extractions, our visting oral surgeon is able to provide IV sedation. Patients are oblivious of treatment and do not remember it but are still able to communicate with the surgeon. This is not to be confused with general anaesthetic.
