Nitrous Oxide/Happy Gas

“Happy Gas” or “Laughing Gas” is a versatile compound and surprisingly still used in dental practices today (considering how long ago it was discovered). It is a reliable option for many patients, who feel like a trip to the dentist would be better with a mild sedative on hand.

Happy Gas is a common compound that has many uses, not just in a dental setting. Apart from the fact it actually works, we love it for how quickly it takes effect and how quickly it leaves your system once you stop breathing it in. Unlike stronger sedatives, you will be perfectly fine to drive home after your procedure.

The dentists at the Dental Lounge have been trained in its use and while it is not the strongest sedative that we can offer, it is cheaper than the other options and very straight forward to administer.
