Many people feel anxious going to the dentist. This can be because of a previous bad dental experience or a feeling of embarrassment about the condition of the teeth because of the neglect over the years.
Your comfort is our priority. We go that extra mile for your comfort. Therefore we offer Nitrous oxide/ Happy gas/ Laughing gas to help calm your nerves during treatment.
Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. It decreases pain sensitivity and makes you feel calm and comfortable. The effects of Nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
If you would like to book an appointment or if you have any questions about Sedation for Anxious patients (Happy gas), Please Contact us or ring our friendly staff at Tooth Smart Dental on (04) 2538 5134.
