Happy gas & sedation

At Laser + Holistic Dental we understand the various anxieties people may have about visiting the dentist and as such we endeavour to make your treatment as relaxing and pain free as possible. Our Holistic approach is all about maintaining the patient’s well being – we want you to be happy about coming to the dentist!

Happy gas is a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide that is safe, reversible and you remain totally in control through the procedure. Some of our patients who need/prefer a deeper level of sedation  may choose to use oral sedation to help alleviate any anxiety.  In these circumstances, we recommend eating a high protein meal before your procedure and make sure you have organized for someone you trust drive you from the clinic to your home to rest for the remainder of the day. We provide a dose of Vitamin C and Vitamin B12 at the completion of the dental appointment. This will assist with quick metabolism of the local anaesthetic and sedative.

We offer a free trial of happy gas on request for those who get anxious about visiting the dentist or for those who simply want a more relaxing experience. Happy gas is a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide that is totally safe and reversible unlike usual sedatives. With happy gas you will be able to drive your car straight away and get on with the rest of your day.
