Sedation with Happy gas

Sedation with Happy Gas

Many people are fearful or nervous about going to the dentist due to a past bad experience. Children are also equally anxious about dental visits owing to the intimidating equipment they see being used by dentists. As a result, their oral health suffers. Many avoid going to a dental clinic even when there are severe consequences such as tooth decay or excruciating pain. The delay in going to the clinic and the build-up of anxiety probably leads to even more pain. The possibility of the surrounding teeth and gums being affected is equally high, making a prolonged delay risky.

The good news is that there’s sedation dentistry available now. Some dentists call this type of dentistry sleep dentistry, but the patient can be awake throughout the procedure.

What is happy gas?

At Carrum Downs Dental Care, we use Happy Gas Sedation to make your procedure as comfortable as possible.

One of the components of sedation dentistry is Happy Gas, also known as laughing gas, as it makes the patient a bit giddy when they inhale it. Sedation dentistry with happy gas in Melbourne is both safe and comfortable for patients of every age.

Happy gas helps you to feel at ease during your dental procedure and is a much safer and easier option than a general anesthetic. A benefit to happy gas is that a patient is able to drive themselves home after their treatment. A small mask is placed over your nose throughout the procedure to inhale the sedative and at the completion of the procedure oxygen is administered to remove all traces of the sedative from your system. Happy gas is safe for children as well as adults and makes every dental procedure a comfortable one. Further, the chances of a patient hurting themselves due to their increasing anxiety is also eliminated, reducing the risk of complications.
