Happy Gas Dentistry at KR Dental

Assisting Anxious Patients

How Does Happy Gas Work?

Happy gas (also known as nitrous oxide or laughing gas) is an effective form of sedation that allows anxious patients to undergo treatment in a very relaxed and euphoric state. Not only can it instantly ease a patient’s nerves or feelings of panic, but it is a highly successful form of pain management, suppressing senses such as hearing and touch.

Our team of oral health care professionals are qualified and trained to administer happy gas for a wide range of procedures, including fillingsroot canal therapydental cleans, and more.

Happy gas is inhaled through a mask and it is safe to use on the majority of patients – including both children and the elderly. Once the patient has breathed in the happy gas for a few minutes, it will begin to take effect. The patient will find themselves in a highly relaxed, sedative state, allowing our dentists to commence the procedure. Although happy gas is a sedative, it’s important to mention that the patient is in fact not asleep. They remain conscious during the procedure and our dentist is able to converse with them throughout.

Other Benefits of Happy Gas Dentistry

Our team pride themselves on only utilising the safest and most trusted medical techniques. Along with the many benefits mentioned above, happy gas is an effective form of sedation due to the following reasons:

  •  Unlike other forms of sedation, happy gas often leaves the patient without any side-effects. After a few minutes, they return to their normal state
  •  It works quickly – within as little as 3 minutes
  •  Our dentists can alter the amount of happy gas throughout the procedure, therefore increasing or decreasing the sedation as they see fit
  •  It can be used to eliminate (or at least minimize) gagging
