Nitrous oxide, or ‘happy gas’ as it is aptly nicknamed, is a light sedative that offers a relaxing sensation during dental treatment. It is a quick and easy process that is perfect for patients who are a little nervous at the dentist. It’s becoming very popular at the Dental Lounge, and there are many people that find it helpful.
The gas is inhaled through a nosepiece, and begins to take effect after five minutes. Just as quickly as happy gas works, it wears off once the nosepiece is removed, allowing you to drive home safely after your dental treatment.
