Nitrous Oxide Sedation (“Happy Gas”) at Coastal Dental Care

Coastal Dental Care Practices that offer Nitrous Oxide – Byron Bay, Banora Point, Cabarita, Redland Bay and Burleigh Waters.

At Coastal Dental Care, we understand that some of our patients may experience fear or anxiety surrounding dental procedures. That’s why we offer nitrous oxide sedation, also known as “happy gas.” Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective method of sedation that can help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during your dental treatment.

Why Nitrous Oxide Sedation is Used

Nitrous oxide is commonly used in dental procedures to help patients who experience anxiety, fear, or discomfort. It can also help patients who have difficulty sitting still or controlling their movements during dental treatment. Additionally, nitrous oxide can be used to help patients who have a sensitive gag reflex, making it easier for our team to complete necessary procedures.

How Nitrous Oxide Sedation Works

Nitrous oxide is a gas that is inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose. The gas is mixed with oxygen and inhaled slowly to help you feel more relaxed and comfortable. You will remain conscious and able to communicate with our team throughout the procedure. Nitrous oxide works quickly, and the effects wear off shortly after the mask is removed.

Side Effects of Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation is generally considered to be a safe and effective method of sedation, with few side effects. However, some patients may experience mild side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, or a headache. These side effects are typically short-lived and can be managed by adjusting the level of sedation. It’s important to note that nitrous oxide is not recommended for pregnant women or patients with certain medical conditions, so please let our team know if you are pregnant or have any medical conditions that may affect your treatment.
At Coastal Dental Care, our team is committed to providing our patients with the best possible care. If you are interested in nitrous oxide sedation for your next dental procedure, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information or to schedule your appointment.
