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.
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.
