Yes, we do offer happy gas if it is deemed a suitable treatment option for your child.
Nitrous oxide is a gas, commonly known as ‘happy gas’ or ‘laughing gas’. Giving nitrous oxide is a way to help reduce a child’s discomfort and anxiety during dental treatment. Your child will breathe the gas through a small nose piece that sits on their nose.
Nitrous oxide makes children feel sleepy and relaxed, but they remain aware of what is happening around them. They may feel dreamy, floaty and warm. They may have tingling in their hands and feet and may be a bit forgetful.
Nitrous oxide is only suitable for use in some children. This option will be discussed during your first visit.
