Know the Procedure about Happy Gas and Dental Anxiety Management
In this procedure, a small amount of nitrous oxide mixed with oxygen is supplied to the patient to develop a calm and relaxing feeling. A small nasal inhaler is placed close to the nose of the patient. The concentration amount of nitrous oxide can be adjusted according to the recommendations of the dentist and depending on Happy Gas Dentistry procedure. The gas creates a calm effect after one to two minutes and soon after the person starts feeling normal and can proceed towards going for oral treatment.
Sometimes, certain patients feel a lot more anxious than normal levels and it becomes difficult to control their anxiety with use of happy gas. In such circumstances, happy gas can be combined with local anaesthetic injections that can be given without any feeling of discomfort. When the local anaesthetic is used then the injections are painless.
Nitrous oxide is also considered to be one of the most commonly known anaesthetic gases used. Using a small amount of nitrous oxide will make the patient sedated for a considerable time but will make him unconscious.

However, all the anxiousness, pain and nervous feeling will go away before going for treatment. At the same time, the patient will be extremely carefree and comfortable about the treatment.
