At Dental On Park, we are proud to provide happy gas as an option to temporarily sedate and relax you.
Happy gas gives the illusion that injections are stress free and appointments are short in length. Throughout treatment you will feel calm and relaxed and will often lose the anxiety you feel towards dental appointments. This makes it easier not only for the appointment at hand, but also eliminates the anxiety you may feel towards future dental appointments ( knowing that the appointment will be stress free with the use of Happy Gas).
Happy gas wears off shortly after treatment. (Approximately 30-60 mins). This allows you to get back to work and get on with your day.
The equipment we use (as your happy gas dentist), to deliver the gas is quite simple. It consists of a supply of compressed gases and a nose piece which delivers the gases to you. Flowmeters and pressure gauges allow us to keep an eye on the flow of gases. The desired N2O-O2 mix is fed through a tube to which a nasal hood or cannula is attached. This hood is put over your nose. All you have to do now is breathe normally through your nose – bingo! When making your dental appointments with Happy Gas, please advise our receptionist so that the gas can be ready, organised and waiting for you at your dental appointment.
Post Operative Care For Treatment under Happy Gas:
- You can’t t drive for at least 60 minutes after your happy gas appointment nor should you sign any legal documents.
- We recommend you either spend that 30-60 minutes in our reception watching Tv or have a friend or family with you if you want to leave immediately afterwards. This is just a precaution to ensure you don’t do anything crazy until the effects of the happy gas have completely worn off.
