Happy Gas (Inhalation sedation)

The best in class dental clinic in Normanhurst

happy gas

Inhalation sedation is also called relative anaesthesia, happy gas or laughing gas. It is a gas that is quickly and easily administered by our experienced team through inhalation. This provides a relaxed state of mind.

The gas only takes a few minutes to take effect and is quickly reversed. Therefore there is no inconvenience caused and you are able to go home or back to work on your own. This is the only form of sedation where you may be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.

Two types of masks can be used to deliver gas to the patient:-

  • Traditional nasal masks
  • Silhouette nasal masks

At Normanhurst Dental, we use the latest Silhouette low profile nasal masks.
