We offer inhalation sedation for our more anxious patients. The gas nitrous oxide, often called 'happy gas' or ''laughing gas', is used to help you feel more relaxed and calm as well as providing a mild analgesic effect.
Nitrous oxide and oxygen is delivered via a nosepiece that is worn while treatment is provided.
The effects of sedation disappear very quickly and you will feel relatively normal soon after the procedure is completed. However, you will need to have someone drive you home as a precaution.
Let us know prior to your appointment if you feel that you may benefit from this service.
