If visiting your Campbelltown dentist makes you a little uncomfortable, or even a lot panicky, our sedation dentistry at A Plus Dental can help you stay comfortable during your treatment to ensure you get the care you need.
Our skilled dentists help patients overcome their fear and anxieties with our nitrous oxide sedation, also known as happy gas.
Happy gas is highly recommended for patients with mild to moderate anxiety, and those who are extreme gaggers. It is also a wonderful option for individuals who suffer from angina pectoris, high blood pressure, asthma, or epilepsy.
How Happy Gas Works
Nitrous oxide is not called happy gas or laughing gas for no reason. Once you breathe the gas in through a mask, you experience a light, happy feeling.
Nitrous oxide is a mild type of sedation that eliminates dental anxiety by using nitrous oxide and oxygen. Your dentist will place a rubber inhaler, which is adjusted for your comfort over your nose. You will initially be breathing 100% oxygen, followed by a flow of nitrous oxide. Over the next 3 to 5 minutes, your dentist will ask you how you feel while the amount of nitrous oxide is gradually increased to the proper level.
The major advantage of happy gas is that you remain conscious throughout the procedure. Your dentist can talk with you and you can respond without any problem.
