Happy Gas Sedation
At North Ryde Dental Practice we go to great lengths to give a virtually painless injection but there is also the option of laughing gas, Happy gas, for anxious patients.
What is it and what does it cost?
Laughing gas is Nitrous oxide (N2O) and it is simply a gas which you breathe in. It has no colour or smell and does not irritate. Happy gas works very rapidly and its relaxation and pain killing properties develops after 2-3 min. The gas is fed through a tube to which a nasal hood or cannula is attached. This hood is put over your nose and all you have to do is breath normally through your nose.
There is no hangover effect and the gas is eliminated from the body within 3 to 5 min after the gas supply has been stopped. You can safely drive home and do not need an escort.
At North Ryde Dental Practice we do NOT charge extra for happy gas. It is just another way we try to make the treatments as comfortable as possible for our clients.
