Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Better known as ‘Happy Gas‘, Nitrous Oxide is available for anxious or nervous people and very useful when treating children.
It is a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide – these are colourless, odourless gases that, when mixed, have a sedative effect. (also known as Relative Analgesia)
The gas is administered through a mask that sits on your nose … so you are in control. Doses can be adjusted up or down to suit the individual patient.
The effects wear off quickly after treatment so you are generally right to drive home afterwards, unlike other sedation options
