All About 'Happy Gas'

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.

General Anaesthetic

There are times when even the excellent forms of sedation we can offer in the practice are not suitable. We understand that each person’s phobias and medical conditions are unique, after our initial consultation with you (and your medical physician if required) we may recommend that a general anaesthetic might be the most suitable way to complete the majority of your dental work.

Wisdom Tooth Pain

Wisdom teeth can often be the unseen cause of pain in the jaw, gums and surrounding teeth.  Wisdom teeth can become stuck under the other molars, causing inflammation, sometimes even infections.  While they can be painful when they start to cause problems, they can sometime be causing unseen long term damage with no pain present.  

Relaxing environment

Are you a little apprehensive?  We treat you with dignity and try to make sure you are relaxed.  The Dental Lounge was designed right from the start to be a relaxing place.
